Well to start I had to wait for the cashier when I walked in. No they weren't busy. She was just MIA. There was a decent selection of food. What I had was not hot. I'm talking barely warm to cold. I had meatloaf that was ok. The baked chicken was so dry I couldn't eat it. The rolls were... More

Restaurant was reasonably clean. Reasonably good food. Considered it a fair price for buffet. Staff was friendly.

Visited here on Thursday afternoon at 3:30. Food was good, being a buffet, there was plenty to pick from, including main course, veggies, salad bar. Waitress brought hot rolls and was always available to fill drinks. Some desserts had been sitting too long. Price was very reasonable, they have a senior discount and drinks for seniors were also free, which... More

We were travelling I-64 on Thanksgiving Day and food options are almost non-existent between Louisville and St Louis so we were happy to find this restaurant open. It was very busy, but we were seated immediately. The waitress was attentive and the buffet items were varied and fresh; they had a special carving station with traditional Thanksgiving items available. The... More

This was the worst restaurant We have been to in quite some time. Ribs cold, soup cold with scum over, ice cream machine not working. Buns from buffet dry and hard. Should have had a clue as only 20 people at 6 pm on a Monday. Will not return!

Food was good but we arrived near closing and many items were gone and not being replaced. Tables and chairs were dirty and sticky. My server was friendly and gave me coffee but I heard another server refuse to make fresh coffee for an eldey woman. She blamed it on the management saying that it was wasteful to keep making...

Visited several times here and I found it comforting food. Best visits have been when the store was busy and the food line was being replaced at a good pace. Nothing so unappealing as a tired buffet line! Would be difficult for even a fussy eater to not be able to have an enjoyable meal. Yes, I can make appetizers,... More

Tuesday night is one of the BBQ nights. Salad bar was well stocked with lots of choices. I created a garden salad with several vegetables and lots of plum tomatoes. I had some boneless BBQ ribs, corn, green beans, a pork cutlet, and BBQ sausages with sliced green peppers & onions. All was tasty, colorful, and we'll presented. This is... More

It is a Ryans so you might already know what you are getting. You also know you will be full. For $11, I feel it is overpriced. I got a steak off the bar and was extremely underwhelmed. Food was stocked and hot but thought it was less impressive than recent trips to similar Ryans/Golden Corral visits. Staff was friendly.... More
