We drove here to celebrate our 20th Anniversary because a friend had told us it was very good. It was so much better than we even anticipated! We had the sirloin the first time we went. The service was fast and the meat was flavorful and tender. The salad and soup bar came with it. There were two soup choices... More

Very extensive menu, and cheap for what you get. The servings are BIG, with an all-you-can-eat salad bar (with soup station). I had the pork chops -- two large pork chops (no bones), with choice of potato (I had American fries), soup and salad bar for $9.99. Way more than I could eat for lunch and they are happy to...

We were in town for a class reunion. We ate here 4 times because the food was great at a reasonable price. The service was wonderful. Everyone was friendly. They serve an excellent breakfast. Their cook knows how to cook eggs.

We eat here all the time, rarely have anything bad. Salads are fresh, daily specials are always good. Lunch time they have a soup and salad bar that is very good. We highly recommend eating here!

My husband and I ate dinner at this restaurant on June 28, 2016. When we ate here, the restaurant did not have a liquor license - they have applied for a liquor license. We did not have a reservation and were seated right away. The restaurant was well attended for a Tuesday evening. I ordered one of the specials -... More

We ate here on Friday 2/5/16. There was a little wait as the resturant was full. The food was delicious. My son ordered the smother chicken breast with vegatables, my husband ordered the prime rib with baked potato and I ordered the grill chicken stir fry. All our meals came with the salad bar which is really nice. Prices are... More

Stopped in for dinner on a recommendation. We weren't greeted, and seated ourselves. However, a waitress soon came over. Food was pretty good, service quick. There was four of us and overall we were pleased. Portions were plenty, however on my mo burger it seemed that the bun was alot bigger than the burger. It was delicious though, but I... More
