I recently had a lunch meeting at this little gem & it was wonderful. They have a daily pizza and salad Buffet that you won't want to miss. I give it a definite thumbs up.

Went to get their pizza buffet after doing a cave tour at Hidden River. Good food, price, and service!

Every time we pop in on road trips they add new items and the staff is always helpful! Their salad bar is great.

More like a fast food place than a restaurant. Food was tasty. Have to order at counter but it is served to your table. Tables are set haphazard in a very small space. Would say it is an OK place to eat but not dine.

When my family I spent a week visiting Mammoth Caves NP, this was the best restaurant in the area. The pizza and salad was excellent. The value (price/quantity/quality) of the food was incredible. Compared to all pizza places, not just the many "touristy" places around a National Park, Turtlelini's is a gem. I highly recommend.

Wonderful, clean, well kept up Buffet! We were in town 3 days and ate here twice! Their Cheese Sticks were top notch! Sandwiches are terrific also! They have a "Regular" size and a "Super" size. Trust me the "Regular" size is more than enough!

After driving 6 hours, this was the first restaurant we visited on our KY trip. A bit pricey ($50 for 2 adults/3 kids), but the buffet allowed the kids to eat as much as they wanted. The food was excellent (definitely get the lasagna), and it was a great place to sit and recuperate after a long drive.

Really well prepared Italian dishes, as well as pizzas, calzones, a pizza buffet and other menu items. Dough is scratch made on premises. You do not order at your table, you sit, peruse the menu, select your choices, and then approach the front counter to place your order and get your cups and salad bowls, if you select their nice...

We were pretty disappointed with our dinner experience - from the actual ordering process through to the taste of the food. Whether the girl who answered the phone had worked a long shift or was just having a bad day, or simply has terrible customer service skills, it came through on the phone. She chastised me for trying to order... More
