The food was better than average here, reminded me of home cooked meals. I had the ribs which were tasty and meaty. My husband had the broasted chicken which he also enjoyed.

Best place in town for a good breakfast buffet! Good food, friendly staff, and a good location. Food is nothing spectacular, but perfect for a weekend away from home.

This restaurant doesn't have food that you would rave about and the prices are on the high side for the quality of food. However, the service from the wait staff is spot on. Great Service - Not Good Food.
