Had the buffet. American Food staples, chicken, beef, meatloaf, decent salad bar, and a nondescript vegetable soup. It fit the bill for filling me up, burt nothing special.

The restaurant is affiliated with the folks at the Tally Ho Inn next door. The decor is dated but the service was excellent as was the food. We had the buffet and enjoyed it.

We had the breakfast buffet. The bacon was very good. The sausage and biscuits were also very good. The scrambled eggs were reconstituted and had water in the pan. The wait staff were very friendly.

If you're looking for fancy interiors, this is not the place. I don't believe it has been updated since the 1980's. If you are looking for good home cookef food at reasonable prices with friendly staff, this is the place. We'll definitely eat here again...More

Outdated interior and reminded me of an 80s establishment. I didn't eat because food looked subpar to me. My husband ate, but nothing special.
