The fried mushrooms were good, my wife's prime rib was mediocre. My chicken fried steak was cafeteria quality at best, my texas rice was literally cold to the touch as was my wife's mac and cheese. The service was painfully slow.

We spent Easter lunch here with a buffet. Had the best most unexpected experience. We were traveling through and decided to stop and were so glad we did. Defiantly would like to go back.

Not recommended at all. Food was horrible. Novelty of place not worth the trouble. The steak made my husband literally sick.
