Winners Circle Restaurant is a very good place to eat. We ordered Club sandwiches that were huge and tasty. Waitress was very attentive even though they were busy. I would eat there again. Highly recomend.

The staff is friendly and the restaurant is spacious! The food.… OUTSTANDING! I ordered the chicken Philly all the way and it was generous and delicious! The bread was fresh and there was such a large amount of fillings that they spilled out onto the...plate! The fries were crinkle cut and I love that they do not have salt or seasoning, as I like to season my own. My husband had the club sandwich and fries and stated that it was better than any diner he's ever had!More

This was a decent restaurant with a varied men including seafood. But, it's been closed at least since the fall of 2021. No idea if it will ever be open again.

In 1985 the decor would have been cutting edge. The food is delicious and prices are very reasonable. It is true that they run out of items. The first time we went there the server first told us that they were out of baked white...& sweet potatoes. Then he said very quietly ‘oh also prime rib’ which of course was why we were there! Now we know to go early and get carry-out. Carry out 8 oz. prime rib with make & take salad & baked potato was $16.99. While delish hamburger is $5.60. We like lunch there too. Hamburgers are the best anywhere.More

We recently stopped at Winner's Circle for a quick lunch. The service was friendly and efficient. Iced tea was very good. Baked potatoes were very fresh and delicious. Cheesesteak sandwich was very, very good.

Just had dinner there this weekend. Prime Rib was excellent. Steamed veggies were not overcooked and the service was great.

Week-day lunch specials are one of the best deals in the area. Steaks and massive baked potatoes are the best in the area. One of the best salad bars around as well. Service here is always the best.

I'm sure the once, a long time ago, this was a great place to eat. They have loyal customers so it must be so, but as a newbie to the area, we have been trying all the local fare and found this one unappealing from...the moment we stepped in the door. From the outside it can even be hard to tell if it's open. Once in the door you have to let your eyes adjust to how dark it is. After taking a look around it is obvious the darkness is to hide to dirt and need for a remodel. The hostess was friendly, even willing to seat us even though they were technically closed between lunch and dinner. The menu was broad, but pricey for what it is. We saw - and smelled, enough though and did not stay.More

This restaurant is in need of a major overhaul. It is dingy and feels dirty. We've eaten in only once, because the food does not taste home cooked. It must be frozen. Ich!

This seems to be just about the only place in town that our friends go, so we met them there twice although it was not my choice. At a weekday lunch, I requested mashed potatoes - they were out. I requested hush puppies - not...served till dinner. I got the soup/salad bar. It is a typical salad bar, nothing special. I ordered the chili as it was one of two soups offered. It is not on the bar, the server brings it to you. It was very thin and overly tomato taste, lots of beans. Lots of beans. I would not order it again. Only two soup choices. On a Sunday (they close at 3:00 Sunday), I requested chicken parm - it is only served two days a week. I requested a baked sweet potato - they are on the menu - they didn't have them. I requested soup and salad - they do not serve soup on weekends! I then ordered the chicken dinner special with 3 vegs. Dark meat? No, it is two chicken breasts. Comes with 3 vegs - I asked if I could substitute a trip to the salad bar instead of 3 vegs - no. So, I ate one chicken breast and took the second with me. It was tasty. Our friend commented, "everything you ordered, they didn't have." True story.More

We were in the area on a Sunday and decided to stop here due to its rating on TripAdvisor for the area. We quickly realized those good reviews were likely from the 65+ crowd, no offense, but just to give you an idea. I'm Southern...and enjoy country cooking, but the food was just okay. I had roast beef, gravy, mashed potatoes, fried squash and yams. The roast beef had good flavor, but was dry and overcooked. The mashed potatoes were good. The fried squash were battered and obviously fried in the same oil as oysters because that is all I could taste. The yams had a weird texture like they were blended with marshmallow cream and not a good flavor, so I only ate a couple bites. My husband said the biscuits were good. I can tell you. the food has preservatives and possibly MSG because I had a reaction to it including a migraine within 30 minutes of eating. I'm sensitive to preservatives. Anyway, some people may like this type of food, but it's not for me, nor my husband and son who joined me.More

We love Winners Circle. We were in town vacationing and decided to give Winners Circle a try. They have alot of variety and I would definitely recommend the salad bar. My husband and I both got the stromboli and it is the best stromboli we've...ever eaten. The second visit my husband got the prime rib and he said it was excellent. I would have given them five stars but our server on our first visit took 30 minutes to bring our drinks to us and he was very shattered. Our service on the second visit (different server) was excellent.More

A very good, broad menu. Last stopped there several weeks ago just 15 minutes before closing and they still seated me! I've had pizza, cheesy flat bread, seafood platter and wonderful hamburger with the works, onion rings, and large milk. All both alone and with...guests. The restaurant is clean with very friendly, attentive wait staff. I recommend this restaurant.More
