The food is not good and the smell in the place is all grease. The service was bad. you had to chase down the waitress to get your bill. Never again.

We just love eating at places like this. Homemade food...the fried chicken was the best! Wait staff was very friendly. We stopped late on night and even though they were taking down the buffet they made whatever we wanted from the buffet fresh for us. Loved it so much we went back 2 days later for breakfast.

Good food, great service but we won't be going back because the flys are too annoying. Last time we sat in the last booth, away from the door back by the buffet, but a fly still found us.

The Good: local, homemade, good value The Bad: no really good dishes I've eaten here a half dozen times because there are few choices. This is the sort of place that I can really enjoy. If only the food were good. The decor is old, small, Midwestern town with 15 years of wear. The service is always fine, quick and... More

This is a great place. Stopped for lunch on a road trip. We felt welcome with warm and friendly greetings. The buffet had fried chicken and Salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, gravy, veggies, salad... everything tasted great, just like homemade. Recommend highly!

Service was friendly. Our meal was buffet style home cooking. We were looking for something a bit more refreshing / healthy.

Great home cooked meal. Placeneeds some attention but that is part of the small town charm. I had a very generous portion of liver and onions. My wife had the ham. Both were very tasty. Next trip to Deer Creek we will try their breakfast.

Stopped here for lunch on our way to Deer Creek State Park. Had the buffet with fried chicken, spaghetti casserole and baked-pork chops. Good down home cooking. Theme/decor is conservative Christian. Good service.
