While visiting Mammoth Cave during spring break 2017, we stayed 2 nights at Hampton Inn off I-65. The hotel staff highly recommended this restaurant and couldn't agree more. I ordered a large pepperoni pizza and a whole strombolli sandwich. THEY WERE HUGE and DELICIOUS!!! I can't stop thinking about their perfect mix of flavors. Can't go wrong with this place.... More

I found this restaurant with just an internet search of the area we were staying near. We visited on a Monday about 5:30pm and enjoyed the buffet. Price was good for the value. The small salad bar was fresh and clean, and pizza was very good. I'm glad we found this place.

Friendly staff and great food, I had the 3 layer lasagna and it was perfect. Must try the cannoli's. They had a buffet that looked great as well. Just under an hour drive from Louisville its well worth the drive.

We had a large group after a baseball tourney and they were able to accommodate all of us. The buffet stayed fully stocked for our large group and tasted good too. The crew was friendly also and helpful also. Price was good also.

Very disappointed to find out this isn't a chain. We would love to have one closer. The food was excellent. We got there at the end of the buffet and they still made more to put out just for our family. Worth the trip.

Stopped here for late lunch/early dinner after visiting Horse Cave. We all had the pizza buffet which was reasonably priced and available to eat immediately. We were asked if we had any special pizza requests and they put them on the buffet for us. Food was pretty good for the price, no complaints!

Stopped in for a late lunch with my husband and 3 kids. Staff was great! We were the only ones in the place so my kids played and explored. Food was fresh and came out in a good amt of time. Bill was higher than expected but our server left before we paid so no one could tell us why... More

We were staying in Cave City and were directed here by one of the rangers at Mammoth Cave. (Decent food choices are very limited around here!) This was a very short drive from Cave City. Staff exceptionally friendly, the pizza is good, great crust. for $8 there is an unlimited salad/pizza/pasta bar with dessert. Restaurant was clean. Very glad we... More

Okay, not great food. Had the pizza/salad buffet for dinner after a day at Mammoth Cave. Staff was very friendly, though!
