    I'm usually pleased, that's why I return, but I especially noticed the friendly but prompt and efficient service this visit. It was late lunch, buffet, but I especially saw that all tables were very quickly cleared and wiped. Refilling of the buffet was very good, not letting any items get too low which sometimes happens in off-peak times.
    One thing which wasn't correct was the soup. Broccoli cheese soup should be creamy, almost thick. This time it was so thin it was broth-like! Maybe the kitchen double-diluted it, incorrectly?
    Tasted okay, I tried it, but its thinness was way wrong!
    Other than that, the buffet was fine.

    The chicken was old and dry. They were out of mashed potatoes and when I asked for more instead of bringing them out in a clean container they came out in a crusty old one. We asked for some dessert pizza and they said it’d be 3 minutes, 15 minutes later they brought it out. They had 3 sausage pizzas out so no variety. The buffet tops were covered in crusty old food.

    Awesome food, awesome atmosphere! Thank you for allowing the fund raiser for my friend Jeff. His old school buddies did a great job of clearing tables too.

    Most was wonderful. The fried chicken was overdone to the point of being hard and tough. Son and wife loved the chocolate chip dessert.

    We had to wait at the register a while before someone came so we could pay. The food was good, however, the home made chips were saltier than usual.

    From ordering to pickup was great. My chicken and wedges were delicious. The biscuits were brown yet doughy in the middle.
