It's been several years since we had visited the Crossroads. We stopped because we didn't find it that much of a value either in price or food variety and quality. In short, it was just average. We were taking a friend out to lunch. She had liked this eatery, and so we decided to check out whether it had improved.... More

I am not a person who normally goes to a buffet. I feel I don't eat enough for the price. Crossroads was very good, staff was very efficient and friendly

When you stop for a meal, make sure you have an empty stomach. Lots of selections on the buffet. Recommend that you plan coming couple times to try all the different food.

We went for the Sunday brunch. The restaurant and gift shop were large, very nice and very clean. Even though the restaurant is large it is divided into smaller dining rooms as well as booths are offered. The salad bar and deserts were excellent with a wide variety to choose from. There were even gluten free deserts offered. But they... More

The buffet at this restaurant is one of the best I have experienced. The roast beef was fantastic as was the potato soup. The salad bar was very good and very fresh. Next time we go I must leave room for dessert which looked very delicious. If you are craving a wholesome home cooked meal this is the place to... More

This restaurant offers a buffet menu that is truly an excellent culinary experience! Homemade soups, salads, pickled vegetables, breads, fruit, a minimum of 3 cooked meats--chicken is always one of the 3 choices available, etc. And yes, the dessert table is to die for--pies, pies, pies, namino bars, jello, cream pies, pudding, etc and ice cream for those who enjoy...
