Picked 3-4 pieces of Silverware out of the bin last time there--all with food attached. In their defense, their manager came over promptly, apologized and said he'd go and check it out. Food seasoned for the elderly and needs some seasons available for people who would like a little more spice in their lives. Prices are not bad. People bring... More

Thank You so much for accommodating us ! We were visiting newly discovered family in Southeastern PA . By the time we thought about dinner it was near closing time for most sit down restaurants. My cousin said he knew of a place that might still be open. Well , even though you were getting ready to close the doors.... More

This place is horrible for the money. The buffet is really disgusting, food has no taste and the variety is less than mediocre

Had a good selection of food and it was all warm and tasted good . The back room was really cold but had to set back there because no tables were cleaned off up front that would be my only complaint. I really liked the food .

I went there today, after not visiting for several years. Now I remember why I didn't go. The cashier was arguing with another person about my receipt while we stood there. We then got a table and then our food. Food was mediocre at best. But the worst was the backed chicken thigh I had was raw I pointed it... More
