The buffet lived up to the hype. I was a little skeptical when an employee next door recommend the buffet. It was filling and the variety was great. Delicious mashed, potatoes, veggies, slicing station with turkey, ham and roast beef kept me coming back for more. The only complaint was it's a little pricey at $17 a person but the... More

As the title says, we only stopped in for the buffet...and were NOT disappointed. Great, home-style options with plenty of family favorites (mashed potatoes, beef, steamed veggies, etc.). The dessert bar was nice but certainly not overwhelming. It was mostly the main courses that kept us happy!

Awesome selection, big salad bar, the catfish and chicken isn't the normal heavy crust one expects from buffets, lightly breaded and seem almost pan fried like my grandma used to make. apple crumb cake for desert, I live a little over an hour away and worth the drive.

Our table of 5 had reservations and were immediately seated on a Sunday afternoon. The hotel is a lovely, era-preserved inn, with several rooms, some larger, some smaller, all with quaint and interesting decor. We all opted for the buffet, which had a large variety of tasty offerings, a large variety of salads, homemade breads & cinnamon rolls, along with... More

My family and I have visited this place multiple times. We love looking at all the items for sale in this house turned into a restaurant. The buffet is well priced and cater to all age groups. They seem to pride themselves in fresh hot food, large parties and wonderful service. A great place for any size party.

The food was totally average but it is a great place to feed a large group. The dessert rolls were the highlight.

ge Stopped n for the buffet that starts at 4:30, this place looks small from the outside but once you get in. Large dining rooms. The buffet at 16.95 gives you many food options.

This is a building originally constructed as a hotel in 1840, and it is still serving that purpose. Because of its age, the stairs are steep and the halls are narrow, and I found that my room had a slight - but still noticeable - slope or sag in the floor, characteristic of very old structures. I stayed in the... More

The all you can eat buffet should be visited when you are hungry. First, it ain't cheap. Secondly, the food is OUTSTANDING. Really liked it. Ate there twice during our visit. The staff is friendly and the place is clean. Save room for desserts, yes plural...desserts. Yummy place.
