We visited twice during our stay. The first time we had a pizza which we shared between 3 people and found it very nice with plenty of sauce on it. The second time we had the buffet which we thought was not so good value for money. They had fried chicken, mashed potatoes, beans, corn, biscuits and gravy and also... More

Room for many people and larger parties. We were 16 people and they were very accommodating asking if we had any pizza faves we wanted out. That being said it was a weekend and one would assume they would have the staff to cater to hungry weekend tummy's but nope ... There was a lot of wait time between when... More

Price is a little high for pizza but the quality and variety of ingredients makes up for it. Small buffet with more than pizza to choose from.

Tasty pizza, but not great. There is much to be asked for from their pizza but it is good. The chicken is really good, nothing done outstanding here either but I go for it before the pizza. Salad bar, nice, ice cream very creamy and dessert pizza is awesome.

Great buffet. Best chicken in town. good pizza and salad bar. Nice people. A bit pricey and they just rased their buffet price at lunch to $9 so don't go there as often but still a nice Friday treat.

Ate here after a race, good pizza and chicken, ok value. The place was clean and as expected. The staff were friendly and made whatever pizza we asked for. I would eat here again.

My family and I went there on June 6,2015, before the Boone races, and let me tell you, there are more people standing around than willing to work. The food at best was luke warm. The mashed potatoes were dry, the gravy had no flavor, there were no 'famous' potato wedges but instead mushy waffle fries. Another customer told an... More

6 adults = $60+. I could have ordered 3 medium pizzas for half that. Pizza is decent, but nothing to write home about. Besides pizza buffet, they have fried chicken, ribs and fixins buffet, salad bar, and deserts/ice cream. Floor was filthy with droppings. Server did come around frequently to clear used plates.

We love their chicken and the items on their buffet but we are not big fans of their pizza. The staff is excellent and very helpful at all times. One of the things we appreciate is that the management allows groups to serve you and they receive the tips for that evening. It's very clean and one can tell that... More
