Food on the floor. Oblivious wait staff. Dirty tables. Dry food on buffet. Have a monthly function in town and was hoping to stop here each time. Won't be back.

The atmosphere here is not very welcoming. They have a buffet, it looked old and the bar was messy. We ordered burgers off the menu, good choice as they were delicious! Best value there. Server was slow. Food is cooked to order so expect a wait.

First time visiting this restaurant as an adult. We had a very large party following a funeral on 1/9/16. The workers did everything to our large group feel welcomed. Although I don't eat steak the buffet comes with your own cook to order steak which was a crowd pleaser. The buffet was well stocked with items for vegans and meat... More

Prices are reasonable. Wait staff are "more than happy" to accommodate you in any way, and the brunch bar at 2:00 PM when we ate Saturday, was very warm. Clean place and friendly staff.

The breakfast buffet is pretty good, but anything after breakfast becomes a little sketch as to taste and quality.
