We visited The Trails for Sunday Brunch today and it was wonderful. Big, roomy banquet hall with many tables for communal seating. You may be seated by unknown people but then you talk and realize how beautiful strangers can be. I met a couple who were from tiny Rex, Georgia and we figured out they lived ten minutes from my...

We had a Sunday brunch. The atmosphere is dreary and the waitress kept spilling on our table. The food was decent but presentation was really not appealing

The place is really charming, old wood building, the cook term on my filet mignion wrapped with bacon was exactly I like it. The taste was perfect along with the baked potatoes and the Vichy carrots, both veggies delicious. I will recommend it.

When this place first opened, it was great. However, I don't think I'll be going back. It just continues to go downhill in quality. Still many great selections but they might be burned, cold, or tough. We just worry about food safety since this is not the first time we've observed this.

This amazing buffet is fit for a wedding. We go there for Sunday brunch, and the food is everything you have ever dreamed about. There is an omelet bar, a dessert/ice cream bar, a seafood spread, a chef for carving roast beast, a salad bonanza, fruit galore, baked vegetables, a full bar, fast service in a huge white-table-clothed room....and I...

Everyone enjoyed Easter Sunday brunch. The food was good, hot and fresh. Each person in our group found something to enjoy. We have gone out each year on Easter and this was our first time at The Trails, the best part of our visit was the price, you cannot find a buffet as reasonably priced anywhere near Indy. We have...

So my father in law took me out for Sunday brunch more or less because of the shrimp, oysters and jambalaya. The Trails tries to come off as an upscale buffet and tries to cater to the after church crowd. It is true that the surroundings are better than your average buffet but where they fall flat is in the... More

Very nice Sunday Brunch Buffet. Make reservations "on line" or via phone to save wait time after arrival. Numerous breakfast foods along with a made to order omelette bar. Salad bar including shrimp and oysters and smoked salmon. Main course bar with ham, prime rib, etc. Also a very nice desert bar. More than you could ever eat with just... More

Four of us enjoyed Sunday brunch at Trails and were flabbergasted at the variety of excellent food on their buffet. I went back for seconds on the smoked salmon and was very surprised to see fresh oysters on the half shell. The roast beef with a dab of horseradish sauce couldn't have been better. There are far too many enticing... More
