“Good for McMinnville”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

I frequently visit this place for lunch. The salad bar is good. The hot bar is to be expected: mashed potatoes, corn, some greens. The hot bar also typically has lasagna and fried chicken. The bar also has pizza which is good when it is fresh, but, for some reason, often gets cold while still on the buffet. The price is decent - around $9 for drink and bar.

Bottom line: If you're meeting someone in McMinnville and don't want Chinese or Mexican, this is the obvious choice for lunch.

A very good buffet and a full menu has all the bases covered. This is a very clean and neat eatery. Service is fast and friendly. Great prices also.

“Gondola's Lunch and Breakfast Buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Breakfast and Lunch Buffet are well worth the price! Selection and freshness of foods makes this a great place for breakfast or lunch. The Dinner menu is a bit pricey compared to other places in town, but for a nice evening out, Gondola has a very nice atmosphere.

“Ya gotta try the chocolate gravy...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

This was my 2nd time here while in town on business and the first place that I had chocolate gravy. I don't normally care for buffets but the breakfast one here is expansive and tasty.

Again, try the chocolate gravy on the biscuits. You'll be a fan for sure.

I'll be back next time I'm in town.

“Breakfast Buffet.....Goooood!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

I have only had the breakfast buffet, but I have made three intentional stops on my way thru McMinnville. Each time I have been there early and each time the buffet has been very good. I am not a fan of buffet style meals, but this breakfast buffet is done right. There is a nice selection of items....even chocolate gravy. Each time my server has been very friendly and always kept my coffee hot. The restaurant is clean and atmosphere is o.k. (It looks like it may have been a Shoney's building at one time)
Myself and 8 other golfing buddies stopped yesterday morning and everyone in the group said it was great and they would definitely eat there again.
