Service was poor, food was o.k., and the atmosphere needs a major update! This used to be a nice place to eat, but nothing has been taken care of in quite awhile.

We visit this restaurant on a regular basis with family and really enjoy the food and service , but our latest visit was a disappointment . We usually order one of the fish dinners. Our meals were warm, defiantly not hot, and just not the quality of food that brings us back again and again. Salad bar was fresh and... More

First of all, the gentleman who seated us needs to cheer up! He was gloomy enough to turn anyone off to this restaurant! Our waitress greeted us quickly and took our order -- I ordered blueberry pancakes with bacon, and my husband ordered French toast. We waited 30 minutes for our food! Pancakes take, what? 3 minutes to make? They... More

Went on Saturday while they had the buffet. The fried chicken is the best. $9.99 for the buffet is the best deal.

Old fashioned, small hometown cooking; i.e., fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans.....buffet or order from kitchen. Pleasant atmosphere....typical small town environment. A lot of grey-haired clientele, and Sunday crowd.

Excellent food for everyone. You can choose a table or booth and place you order or you can choose the buffet. Either way, you will receive the best that Circleville has to offer. Fried chicken, beef roast, or pork roast. Everything is home made and cooked to perfection.

We've eaten here a lot over the years! They have the best broasted chicken in town and now make their own french fries and onion rings. Their nightly buffet is a real value, especially for kids, and they have really good pies and an ice cream machine for dessert. Not everything is made from scratch and some of the meals... More

If you want a Delish quick lunch, you can call ahead and pick up! Or dine in. We had Rubin sandwiches and onion rings!! Great service, reasonably priced, clean and the food was very good. Handicap accessible. Highly suggest this one!!
