A good breakfast buffet is a fine art. It has to have a wide selection but not be overwhelming. The food has to remain well-stocked without getting dried out or overcooked. And it’s got to be a good bang for your buck. Breakfast buffets can be upscale or down home, served in bars or in fine dining restaurants. So we arrive at this week’s Three To Try: The Brunch Buffet Booster.
1. Marshall’s Grandview – This Grandview spot operates as both a restaurant and a bar, and they put that to good use at breakfast. Their buffet runs Saturdays and Sundays. It’s $9.99 for adults; $5.99 for kids. While you won’t find anything fancy, you’ll find all the classics: eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits and gravy, steak, potatoes, toast, pastries, and much more.
2. The Barn at Rocky Fork Creek – In case you couldn’t tell, The Barn’s Farmstead Brunch Buffet (Sundays, 10a-2:30p) is more on the upscale side. But it features an amazing selection of foods: smoked salmon, eggs benedicts, fried chicken, prime rib, fresh pastries. You name it, it’s probably there. The buffet is $29.95 for adults and $14.95 for the kids. While you’re there you can also sip some brunch cocktails or sample their huge bourbon collection.
3. Oddfellows Liquor Bar – I love Oddfellows. They’re just so much fun. They own every inch of the dive bar identity. Every Saturday from 11a-3p they offer the Classy Brunch Party. It’s only $6
(although you do have to buy a drink) and you get to eat your way through weekly specials. And the libations? They’re all boozy cereal drinks.
