My sister and I ate here our first night in Sarasota. We were tired from traveling and it was a sweet place to rest. The staff was kind and efficient. The gift shop upstairs was huge. We had the buffet. I hadn't eaten at a buffet in years. I thoroughly enjoyed the choices presented. The price was right, too.

I experienced the lunch buffet. It was priced just under $12 and well worth it. There was a fresh salad bar that included pickled beets, beet eggs and mustard eggs. Hot food included fried chicken, bar-b-qued beef, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and several other items. Meals can also be purchased separately from the buffet. An efficient wait staff will... More

The chicken was good but the turkey was Thanksgiving - excellent. the buffet was almost $15 and dinners were around $11. it just made sense to have the buffet since there were so many excellent choices. Service was very good but we were seated in the banquet area and the atmosphere was non existent. This isn't just a restaurant. it... More

My friend and I decided to try a new Amish restaurant for breakfast. We were seated almost right away. And our waitress was right there with water and asking for our drink order. Esther M. was our waitress and she did a great job. She was right there to get our order and to check on us throughout the meal.... More

We have visited this place many times over the years. Unfortunately the quality has gotten much worse lately. Their broasted chicken has a great flavor but was dry as a bone last time we visited. Gift shop area with food and upstairs is worth browsing.

Thank AlwaysHopefulPTL
Management response:

Thanks so much for your patronage over the years, we so appreciate that. I am very sorry about the chicken during your last visit. Having quality food is so important to us, I am disappointed that we failed during your visit. I wanted to let you know we take your comments seriously and will be addressing this concern. Thanks Jeff More
