Breakfast is my favorite meal. Their breakfast buffet is what you'd expect with sausage, bacon, pancakes, waffles, cream dried beef, home fries, fruit, toast and more. It's no Shady Maple, but it's the only breakfast buffet in the Pottstown area. They only have it Saturdays and Sundays.

We had great service and would definitely go back here again if we are ever in the area. It seemed like... More

Breakfast with my brother. Very good service from the minute you walk into the door until you leave at the cashier. Management is top notch. Breakfast and dinners are always very good. Never had lunch but it is on my agenda.

Very good salad bar. One of the best around. The food is good, not great, but for the price you can't beat it
