This place has been a favorite of ours for years, but over the past few months they have made changes that we don't appreciate. There have been changes in the decorations which are okay, but we were in this weekend and noticed that many favorites have been removed from the menu. They seemed to try but a couple of our...

I always know I'm in for a good meal when I'm there. It's reputation must exceed the fine city of St Clair Shores as I've met a number of Canadians... More

Successful establishment with consistent food and service. Try the Grouper or Steak Bites. Carry out portions are very generous.

I ordered a Ruben sandwich here. For the next 2 days I was sick with food poisoning. I contacted the restaurant via email, facebook, and telephone. In all instances I was ignored and nothing was done, not even an apology. The service is very slow, especially at the bar and the cost of items compared to the quality is too... More

Never disappoints, always excellent food & service. Recently had a 90th birthday party there for 65 people. Food was outstanding, service was excellent & price was great. Everyone loved it. Excellent Buffett for the holidays too. Have enjoyed Thanksgiving,Easter & Mother's Day. Always a special place.

I thought the food was okay, the interior needed some updates, the general ambiance of the place made me a bit uneasy. I have not thought about this place since I last went and hope to never think about again in the future.

I've gone there for Easter, Thanksgiving and other holidays for their buffets, which have just about everything from prime rib to shrimp to seafood salads and great desserts as well.

The house salad is exceptional. It is a combination of nuts, coconut, fruit and a wonderful dressing. Be careful not to spoil your appetite. The main courses offered are varied and nicely prepared.
