“Good Food and Great Buffets”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

Have eaten at the Shrine Restaurant a number of times and have never had a bad meal. You can order off the menu or on weekend they usually have a themed buffet. They have had an Octoberfest Buffet, some sort of BBQ Buffet I believe. They also have a Fried Chicken Buffet every Sunday. The Fried Chicken kept finding its way to my plate. Come give them a visit and you will be back again.

“Excellent Lunch and Service at Affordable Prices”
Reviewed 9 November 2012

The restaurant was full for lunch but the service was still excellent. There's a salad & soup buffet and one can also order from the menu. The shrimp appetizer was delicious and filling. My burger was out of the ordinary. Simple foods but worth the money.

“Varied experiences”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

I really enjoy their Lunch Soup & Salad bars... only regrets, they use WAY too much salt in the soups... but they are very good.

Why the Average?

Their German night (offered from time to time) is only so so. Disappointing to this German descendant. Go to Gast Haus over in St Louis for some true German cooking.

The buffet is generally well stocked. Service so so.

Special Buffets can be very expensive for what you get.

“Mothers Day Brunch”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

The food was great and at a good price. We had the lunch buffet. It was a bit crowded but it was Mothers Day so everyone was out. Once you got in, it went fast.
