Huge Smorgasbord! Some of the menu changes from day to day. On Tuesday when we went there it was Seafood and has been for a long time. I don't know why they don't mix it up, but they don't. We go down to Root's Farmer's Market which is only on Tuesday's so after going to Shady Maple three or four... More

I was amazed at the selection of the foods. They had so many stations to choose from. Most of... More

Visited Saturday after Thanksgiving so we expected it to be rather busy. It was, but the owners have it well organised and we were seated before long all 22 of us adults and kids. The food choices are wide and varied with all types of hot and cold beverages.

As with all the prior visits, this one left us wanting for nothing. The place is clean, the huge variety of food is expertly prepared and the staff is courteous and friendly. And there is a no tipping policy, the restaurant pays its employees a decent wage.

This was our second visit which was as great as before. An unbelievable smorgasbord of delicious meats, sides, breads, drinks, salad & desert bar is offered. All you can eat for as long as you wish to dine with a large market and 40,000 sq ft gift shop all on the premises in the picturesque rolling hills of East Earl,... More

A buffet with a large selection that included several kinds of meat and breads, veggies, side dishes, a large beverage station and a huge dessert station, there is truly something for everyone. Be sure to check out the giant gift shop downstairs that sells everything from seasonal decorations to sporting teams memorabilia to woodwork and even jewelry.

Overall I would say this place was clean and the food was pretty good. The price wasn't too bad for the variety of food. The wait time wasn't long at 5pm. Now I can say this, the bathrooms...terrible just terrible! 2 stalls in a huge restaurant in the back and the bathrooms in the lobby just as bad. Highly disorganized... More
