All different types of food you could ever want, in all food groups. They quite often have coupons sent out as flyers, so one can get an even better deal. Breakfasts & lunches are the best deals. Staff has always been friendly & no one has ever rushed me (us) out of the restaurant, so I am able to dine... More

We have eaten here many times because my husband likes the variety. We tend to go there before a movie because the theater is so close to the restaurant. It's fairly standard buffet food. Different types of food--Mexican, Italian (including pizza), and American comfort food such as mashed potatoes, cornbread, and salads. They have a carving station for roast beef... More

My husband wanted to eat here for this birthday before a movie. I am health conscious. He loaded his plate with an assortment of heavy food. Meanwhile I was able to find tasty things - the barbequed pork and the carrot raison salad were good. We enjoyed the desserts more than the entrees. Very good chocolate molten lava cake.

Great food but hard to find gluten free selections as they are not labeled. Kind of a guess without asking.

The food at this buffet is just average. However, for our group, its advantage is that it offered something for everyone. We had a child, a person who had to stay on a strict gluten free diet, a person who had to avoid both dairy and gluten, a diabetic and some with no restrictions. Everyone found enough to eat while...

We had just finished visiting Salt Creek Falls and on our way to Yachats – the start of our Oregon Coast adventure. We were passing Springfield on the I5 when we saw the shopping mall. The mall is about 66 miles (107 kilometres) from the Falls. After some quick shopping at the mall, we had a choice to make a... More

This is by far my fave place to eat as far as a good budget eatery. The rest of my family is not fond of it as they refer to it as "jail food". Well, lock me up because I love it! Breakfast is heaven! Bacon everywhere you look and an assortment not seen anywhere else!

Love this place, plenty of everything. Service very good. We have to travel 2 hours to get here, but still a favorite place or me.

I hadn't been to this store for a couple years and now I remember why. The coffee and the strawberry bananas weren't bad. Can't say that for everything else. The hot items were all below 160 degrees and the cold above 40. This was pitiful; rubber eggs, WAY over cooked bacon fragments and flavorless"country gravy". I wasn't expecting much but... More

I will never complain about the food, all of the comfort foods you can hope for and lots of desert choices. But this location is in a remodeled mall and it looks rundowned compared to mall. Torn seats and booths. The ladies bathroom was so nasty. No one washes the walls or fixures. They were covered in grim, boogers and... More
