We had the buffet. Loved the butter beans. Friendly waitresses that don't let your sweet tea get low. Desserts ok. I would come back. Maybe next time they'll have biscuits and corn bread and peach cobbler.

Long-time residents are pretty sure it's good, but I don't agree. I will say they make a good omelette. The hash browns are never fully cooked. I've not had supper there, so I can't speak to that. The service is decent and the prices are fair, but they need to up their breakfast game. The coffee needs improvement too.

Had a Breakfast Buffet on a Saturday and a Lunch Buffet on a Friday. Neither time was i disappointed and you can't beat the price. Hard to make Buffet food great but their was always hot and fresh. We were there with a large group of bikers and our server both times was attentive (even though she is a Georgia Bulldog Fan). Don't go expecting the Ritz because it isn't. It is just as advertised. Down Home Southern Buffet. Biker Friendly and a must stop.

Quality food on the buffet! Great deal, too. Loved the shrimp, chicken, biscuits, okra, and salad bar. They do have a menu as well. Kids are fifty cents per year of age for the buffet.

Wasn't what we expected. The seafood buffet was subpar to say the least. FRESH Seafood does NOT smell fishy. All fish was breaded and deep fried. The salad bar was ok and items were fresh. We might try it on a night other than seafood.

Lunch Buffet had fried chicken, chicken fingers, and baked chicken. There was no other meats to choose from. What looked like sweet potato casserole turned out to be cake. Waitress was blunt and not professional. Told us to "get at it" when we said buffet and walked off.

Our family enjoyed eating here. They had a great buffet with lots of southern food and great southern hospitality to go with it. The prices were average for a buffet. The restaurant seemed clean as well as the bathrooms. We would definitely go back and would recommend it to everyone, young or old. Thank you for serving delicious food!

Great selection of Southern food for a small town buffet. My kids loved the fish...it wasn't too greasy! There's a salad bar as well. The waitress even offered the kids fries since they were getting the buffet. Vanilla and strawberry ice cream cups were included for dessert . The service was perfect and the food was tasty. I did expect banana pudding or peach cobbler, but didn't need it so I'm not complaining since we are for less than $20.

Very fresh ingredients on salad bar. Good tasting chicken, fresh baked rolls, crunchy fried shrimp. The staff is friendly. Price was reasonable for the quality of the food.

A favorite on my 'Ever Done' list! It was worth the drive from Orlando (3 hours or so). Waiting in line for the doors to open at 5pm had us curious but we got a great table at the window and immediate, wonderful service. It turned out to be a buffet restaurant and since it was Friday it was a choice of the seafood or prime rib buffets. All you could eat was good for us... I liked the frog legs but went back for more of the yummy scallops! There were lots of choices in the seafood buffet! I'll try to get back there again!

Girls to busy talking instead of making sure there was meat on the buffet. Asked how long it would be and then waited for an answer i never got. Will never go back again how they got the other good reviews i have no idea except they are reviewing themselves.

The chicken was over cooked and tuff. Pork chops were over cooked. Potatoes were so thick I couldn't get them off the spoon to put them on my plate. Lettuce in the salad bar was not fresh it was getting brown on the edges. Fish was to well done or on the buffet too long.

Good location, handicapped parking, had no waiting. Server took our drink order within minutes and told us to help our self to the buffet. Selections were good like a country buffet should be. Good price for the Buffet. Restaurant was clean as was the bathrooms, had a separate handicapped bathroom. Server checked on us many times and also keep our drinks full. I will visit again when in the area.

Been 2x now. First for breakfast one day then brunch another. Their sausage links are the best I’ve ever had. Told me it’s sourced and made locally. Fried chicken is banging! And they’re gravy was awesome,salty, but I like it that way. Catfish, chicken strips, fried okra, Mac n cheese...all really good. Blueberry cobbler was not super great tho and no other desert choice on buffet. Hopefully going back tonight or tomorrow!
