My first time here and was unimpressed. The food was mediocre at best. Service wasn't great. Didn't feel overly welcome. Could have understood had the restaurant been busy but it was not. Will not return.

Food is Delicious!! Call to see what they are serving before you go. I always go for the Ribs and Chicken dinner. The Breakfast buffet is Great also. You have to pay but the Lumberjack show is fun to watch.

A wonderful place both in atmosphere and food. This is not your usual buffet. You order a skillet and the wonderful servers who are very helpful bring it to you. The food itself is eggs, potatoes, and pancakes but it is all hot and delicious....More

We went for luch one day and the all you can eat wasn't even offered. Selections have changed and quality and value not so good. Won't be coming back but had a ton of great memories here! Hopefully will return to form someday!

We went here as a large family group. Unfortunately our group was too large to seat at one table, but they managed to get us near each other, so that was fine. There was quite a line to get in, but it went amazingly fast....More
