The food on the buffet is fresh and there is plenty of it. The chicken, fish, meatloaf, ribs, sides etc. are great. Service is real good with friendly waitresses and waiters. The place is clean and neat.

Food is generally very good; much tastes homemade. Cinnamon rolls are wonderful! Servers are competent and always friendly. Good value for the money. If you don't like buffet food, there is also a menu with a good selection.
