I rarely give a rave reviews but this place deserves 5 stars. The prime rib is thick and juicy. The buffalo burgers are delicious. The salad bar is fresh. Worth a 1000 mile drive

If you are on your way east or west on Interstate 90, this is the place to eat. It’s small town food with the classic salad bar. The hot beef sandwich with homemade mashed potatoes is the bomb. If you like great pie stop by.
