We were traveling through Opelika to Columbus, Georgia and decided to stop for dinner. All the other restaurants on Hwy 280 were packed so we decided to stop here. It had been years since since we had eaten at this location and now I remember...why. The place is old and looks it inside. It wasn’t very clean, it was disorganized, and loud. We ordered “Flame kist” steaks and they were pan fried. The food was ok, but not what we expected. The only saving grace was we had an excellent young server named Connor who was new. He did a great job. The restaurant could use a complete remodeling. Better organization of the space and better signage would be extremely helpful. It is extremely doubtful we would eat here againMore

I had the ribeye special. My steak unfortunately was a bit salty. This was a last minute change of plans because we had a group of 12 and the other area restaurants couldn't accommodate us in a timely manner. A Golden Corral could but their...exhaust vent broke and the restaurant was like standing inside a BBQ grill, smoke filled. Any rate, the buffet was lack luster.More

I miss the Ryan’s and Western Sizzlin’s of the world, so I was excited to find this WS in Opelika as I was passing through. But it left a lot to be desired. First of all, I couldn’t find the restaurant health score, which should...always be posted on the wall. Already being here though, hubby and I committed. The (breakfast) buffet was quite small, and had typical breakfast choices. I was disappointed with the hashbrowns because they were more like potatoes chopped into very large chunks. The eggs seemed real (vs. powdered), and the other breakfast items were standard. While we were eating they began putting out the salad bar. They only offer iceberg lettuce (no spinach or other healthy greens). Otherwise the salad bar is standard. The waitress was attentive, so no complaints on service. And as a side note, they do offer menu items a la carte. Overall, I recommend you look elsewhere. If you like buffets, at least you know what you’ll get at, say, Golden Corral.More

Walked into a nice looking buffet so chose that over steak or burgers. Food trays looked quite clean and fresh. Vegetables and salads were great. Always restocking items. This was at noon on a friday of christmas weekend.

Myself and Family went to location and the food choices for Seafood nite were very poor. I expected more but I will not be going back no time soon. I will have to go somewhere for buffet food.
