When I saw the restaurant from the outside I instantly assumed dining there wouldn't be a pleasant experience. Almost suggested going elseshere but since we drove 30 minutes and were already there we decided to stay. Even when we walked in I did not feel welcome because one of the staff was not friendly. The blonde glanced our way and gave us a cold look, but lucky for us the buffet was upstairs. Downstairs is more like a diner where you order from the regular menu.
Now onto the buffet. All I can say is Wow! This is what food is supposed to taste like. If it's fine dining you're into or if you are high maintenance, do not go. But if you're after delicious down home cooking at good prices, this is the place. Salad bar was fresh. Moving onto the hot food, there was the most excellent lasagna, with the perfect tomato meat sauce. The creamy potato casserole with bacon or ham had such a unique flavour and was scrumptious. Fried chicken was excellent, as were the giant BBQ beef ribs..but the pizza..I'm still thinking about the pizza! The sauce was perfect, crust (similar to pan pizza at Pizza Hut) was wonderful. Pepperoni was tasty. No skimping on toppings. Simply pizza perfection! I regret living so far since they only deliver locally. They even "guarantee the best tasting pizza that money can buy". After tasting it, I had to agree it was the best. Dessert bar could be improved. Lots of cakes, pies, etc. Nothing I usually eat, but they did have lots of fresh fruit which I enjoyed such as watermelon, kiwi, grapes, pineapple, etc.
Place was clean but decor is dated. Apparently, lots of movies were filmed there so maybe they keep it that way on purpose. I have no regrets. Not even when the blonde girl gave us another look on the way out. In fact, I will be a regular customer now since the food is satisfying, the prices fair and the service good.
