We went to the Crossroads for their Sunday Brunch $19.99 per person. It is very busy on Sundays so you should make a reservation to secure a table. We went with 8 adults to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant is spotless and very large. The buffet is spread out nicely so there is a lot of room to move around.... More

We were out for a drive, stopped at the restaurant for coffee and apple pie. It looked so cozy, It was too early for dinner, but what was prepared looked so good. Many people were already having dinner, although it was around 4.30PM.

Very disappointed again. Last time I was here I complained about their bacon. They responded by saying we put our low end bacon on the buffet, but if you order off the menu it is better. Today the bacon was even worse. The buffet seems old and tired. Time for a refresh and maybe looking after customers a bit more.... More

I love bringing my family here, as you will find something for everyone to enjoy. Also, is all home cooking. Whenever we visit St. Jacob's we make the drive to Crossroads for a meal. We always go hungry! Also, you can take out some of the favourites they serve. Awesome!

I was on a bus trip with 47 seniors, the food here is to die for. It is a buffet, soup, salads, the hot foods are hot and everything is made on the premises. I had a pork tail for the first time, delicious, the turnip was the best I have ever tasted, much better than mine, there was so... More

I picked the brunch while my wife chose the menu. Hot food was very good and I found the salad to be excellent. There were... More

The salads and desserts are good but they no longer have their broasted chicken on the lunch buffet (don't know if it's on the dinner one) the roasted chicken was legs only and not much taste, the pot roast was dried out and tough and pasta plain and uninspired. I was very disappointed. I mostly ate dessert for lunch. Don't... More

This is our go to place when visiting with my Dad, usually for brunch/lunch. One of the best brunch/lunch buffets I've been to in terms of the food and service, and the price isn't too high for the value you get. The food has always been hot and fresh, with a really great selection especially for deserts.

I went to this restaurant with a group of about 50 people. We were there for the lunch buffet. Our reservation was for 12:00 but we got there a little early so had to wait. There is quite a large store attached to the restaurant so we were able to wander around (and spend money) while we waited. Once we... More

Had visited this resturant with my sisters and was not impressed. The entire meal was tired old food in a very tired atmosphere. Staff although was great. The price was crazy for what was offered and the only exception wa the pies. Not somewhere I will ever return to.
