The Hearty Platter is your typical chain restaurant. The food was adequate and the location clean. The server was polite and attentive

I don't like giving poor reviews, who does? After all it means I had a bad experience. Well, several. It is attach to a gas station but is a real restaurant if course. It has a lower level clientele and heavy trucker traffic. Our last visit was late at night and there was an argument followed by diners fighting verbally. Kinda scary. The food is mostly mass produced from powder and at the buffet people ran to get the fresh stuff. Again, sorry to be truthful but we were looking for a 'nice' perhaps casual dining experience but being by recently showered truckers and their duffle bags just didn't feel 'special'. Different stroke for different folks I suppose.

My husband and I came in here on 4-12-14. They offered an all yu can eat prime rib buffet for $11.99 per person. The buffet included some of the best fried chicken we ever had. The prime rib was really good. It had salad bar included, three different soups to choose from, au gratin potatoes, mashed potatoes & gravy, corn, mixed veggies, homemade cornbread dressing, rolls and apple crisp. It was pretty tasty..

We have reason to be in Tomah about once every six weeks, and have started stopping here rather than going to the fast food places in town. My husband loves the grilled chicken salad and this is what he usually orders. Nothing unhealthy about that, in spite of what some reviewers say about "unhealthy food." On most recent visit, I had the soup and salad bar which was fine, the chicken noodle soup is absolutely delicious and the rolls that come with the soup and salad bar are warm and yummy. We will stop here again, at lunch time, when we are in Tomah.

Of what the Senior citizen wants in life. Healthy? Better eat at home then.
Ordered the Chicken fried steak & eggs. Not bad, came as ordered, cooked correctly and served hot. This is a truck stop restaurant, not a health food haven. If you want healthy, you need to seek out the Yuppie restaurant s that cater to those type of individuals. If you want truck stop cooking and good portion, then this is the place.
