This is a wonderful day trip from Norfolk, Va. Beach, Petersburg etc. The buffet is delicious with fried chicken, roast beef, fish and all kinds of vegetables. Sometimes there is a short wait but its worth it.

If parking lot looks full, keep driving. Not worth the stop. It took 15 minutes to be waited on and another 50 minutes to get our sandwiches. Really? And the cashier said they weren't as busy as they normally are. Really? I had a grilled...More
