Just OK. Not overwhelmed with the food. The barbecue was excellent. But the price was a little high for what we were offered.

went here with another couple, meal was ok, it's a buffet. If you time it right you can get in and out pretty fast, they do a lot of bus groups and when the buses hit they fill up fast. This isn't a high end...More

Went for supper and Sunday brunch. Both meals were very good. The prices for a buffet were reasonable. Very busy.

We had a nice buffet lunch and the macaroni and cheese was the best, not starchy tasting like many places I've eaten through the years. There were several freshly baked breads and the cinnamon bread was fantastic. It's a popular place with bus tours and...More

Was hoping for a much better meal than we got. Standard buffet food that could have been so much better. Very good service and it's a fun place to look at the historic photos.
