Ordered sirloin tips with baked potato and meat was tender and cooked as requested, medium. Had salad from buffet which was good, and cake and cookies for desert. Very reasonable price for steak and buffet.

Family oriented Steakhouse. Famous for All You Care To Eat Breakfast Buffet served from 7:00 AM to 11:30 AM. Lunch and dinner entrées all include the buffet and dessert bar.
