Stopped here after going to two closed restaurants. This must be a 'franchised' restaurant, because they only have a small salad bar and a small hot food table. Two of us were traveling back to western West Virginia and needed a meal. We noticed the sparse number of cars in the parking lot. Once inside, we knew why. I had... More

I've eaten here several times but it's been a while since I had been here. Pulled in to the parking lot and there was only 3 or 4 cars on the lot at 7pm. Went in and was greeted by hostess who asked if I needed a menu. I asked what was on the buffet and she replied that she... More

We used to love this restaurant, but it has downsized tremendously. The hot bar, salad bar, dessert bar are so small with less food choices as compared to what they used to be. Even the interior has been downsized. There didn't seem to be as many booths. Just disappointed to see this happen to a once good restaurant. The food... More

I guess when compared to Ryans or Golden Corral, this restaurant might be a 5 out of 10. But the cost was the same as any buffet restaurant.The food was hot but not a lot to choose from on the bar. The service was fine and the staff was friendly.

Food was cold, a lot of the items tasted old and had been on the steam table to long. Staff was not friendly. Certainly not somewhere I will go again.

this western sizzlin would be perfect for one of the food network shows that renovates old, tired and dated restaurants...décor is dingy and dirty...the floor felt like it was wet and greasy...buffet was not up to any standard for a sunday buffet...a lot of waitresses standing around chit chatting about tattoos and swimming pools...conversations that should be outside the earshot...

We love patronizing the Western Sizzlin. Always a wonderful meal. Lots to choose from on the menu or the buffet. Waitress was extremely nice and concerned about our circumstances concerning the Flood of 2016. Look forward to going back the next time we are in town.

I place the problems with tonight's review squarely on the management of this location. Less than 20 miles to the west, there was torrential rains and widespread destruction resulting in loss of power and entire towns being shut down and hundreds displaced. The staffing was totally inadequate for the situation faced by a completely overwhelmed staff. Wait time to get... More
