I visited twice, once on Jan 3 (ribeye special) and again on Jan 6 (for the seafood buffet). I ordered my ribeye rare, it came out medium-well so I sent it back. The curly fries were fantastic! The seafood buffet was, IMO, pretty overpriced for...More

My wife and I decided to travel to Mankato this evening. We had a wonderful dinner. There were seven different choices of meats on the buffet and everything we tried was very good. So pleased to have this type of buffet available in rural Kansas....More

Have been eating here since they opened years ago and still look forward to visiting when I'm in town. Enjoy the good food and homemade bread on the salad bar. They are currently selling some yummy cinnamon rolls to go as well. Enjoy!

Always a buffet and the menu items are excellent. The seafood buffet once a month is a favorite in the area.

We were there on a Friday evening. There were several reunions going on but they were stuffed and up to the task. It was a bar-b-que buffet and their guy knows how to cook. Ribs, chicken, melt in your mouth brisket... If you like bar-b-que...More

This is a nice, family owned and operated restaurant. The staff was friendly and the food was tasty. I especially liked that the menu offered a "smaller portion" section. I had plenty to eat and I didn't have the guilt of wasting food. Great choice!
