Sunday brunch at 11am. I would expect the food to all be fresh and hot. But it was not the case. The bacon was so overcooked it was actually burnt, but had been sitting so it was cold and rock hard. And the selection is all food I could just make at home. Nothing special. Plates at the buffet were... More

We come here from time to time. Their prices have increased, the quality has not. It is an ok place to go. Service is fairly good, the food is average. Not sure the value is there any longer....

Having been avid customers of this family restaurant for many years, we have noticed that things aren't what they used to be . . We went for lunch today after having stayed away for about two months. Today we remembered why . The food was barely at room temperature, and the selection was minimal at best . Where there used... More

We stopped while driving through Elmira and quite enjoyed the buffet. It is all home-style cooking, nothing fancy but quite tasty nonetheless. There was a good selection at all stations of the buffet from soups and salads to the desserts. I'm not much of a bread eater, but their homemade bread was delicious and I found myself going back for... More

My son loves the crossroads ! He gets to pick his own food and put it on his plate! He is only six, and I only pay 6.00$ for him because they go by age! I think it's 3 and under eat for free! That's great for family's . The food is amazing and services is good.

Buffets was disappointing. Food is low quality, bland and without excitement, hence the low pricing. Despite my opinion, appears to be popular among some. Handy location at the cross roads with a really interesting and great gift store attached.

Was there for the dinner buffet with family, we will not be back. Turkey and roast beef nearly cold and dried up, the rest of the buffet was bland, no seasonings and lukewarm. As for dessert, same tasteless offerings. We inquired with our server regarding the barely warm roast beef and turkey, after 5 minutes she returned to inform us... More

The three of us went for a quick bite and were very, very disappointed. The food was bland, the service was minimal and the prices are out to lunch. It cost us $76 for a meal that we all agreed was a waste of money. We even told the waitress that we were dissatisfied but that got us nowhere. This... More
