    Very disappointed this time. Couldn’t keep up with the chicken, felt hot bar was not as good as in the past. Salad bar was a huge disappointment. Lettuce was mostly brown, not much of a choice in toppings as in the past. Will more than likely wait awhile before returning.

    We arrived at 4:30 pm and the food was left over fo lunch. Pizza as dried out. Potatoes dried. After we were done the fresh food came out I assumed for dinner.

    Worst experience. We got there when it wasn’t busy. The food on the food bar was not fresh and had been there for some time. We ordered three pizzas, macaroni and cheese and chicken fries right when we arrived...we watched as people who came in after us got their special orders and our wasn’t coming. We asked three times about our order....after almost an hour of watching other people get theirs ours finally came. At that time we were over it. Not a single person came over and said anything...not an employee or manager explained or apologized. Very very disappointing.

    Very good with supplying fresh chicken and hot sides. Okay job with the pizzas coming out and "well stocked". Helpful employees at every interaction. One wiped up a spill I saw happen when I brought it to her attention. The young man picking up dishes did a great job at our table early in our meal. A woman employee picked up dishes at the end of our visit. In between, we needed dishes removed. Overall, the food and service was highly satisfactory.

    Food was great! Just wish the staff could keep chicken on the menu. Had to wait for chicken and the dessert menu was also slim.

    the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because there was no desert pizza!! None!! good or my overall calorie count, but I love the cherry!
