Generous Selection Buffet

Lots to choose from, many items are fried. Fish, shrimp, chicken, vegetables, salad bar, dessert and ice cream-many choices. We had the fish, shrimp and chicken and all were very good. Reasonable prices and great service.

Decided to check it out after positive reviews, and so glad we did! My hubby and I had the buffet which consisted of down home dishes to die for! Flounder, okra and tomatoes, melt in your mouth meatloaf were just a few of my favs, but what sent it over the top was the service! We had a great waitress... More

If you like corn meal battered fish, this is the place to go. It is an out of the way fish camp that is hard to find. It is out in the middle of nowhere.

A group of 25 of us on Motorcycles decided to ride to eat. For $11. Taxes and drink included it was all you could eat. Not just food, but good food. Everything from Country goodness to Seafood. Wonderful deserts on the buffet as well, Even ice cream. Service was great and the food as I said was out of site... More

Likes: -Food was good, but too much paprika was used. -Coffee was good -Servers were very friendly and accommodating Dislikes: -Not at all accessible for the elderly. Building is up on a hill, very hard for the elderly or persons who have difficulty walking to enter building. -Not very well organized. This is due to the restaurant having a buffet.... More

Good selection and a fair price. Bring cash or use the ATM next to the cashier. This is a buffet and the atmosphere and food are perfect for the venue. There was fried fish and shrimp, oyster stew(with no oysters that I could find), country style steak, chicken dumplings and the standard vegetable fare. A basic salad bar and desert... More

The fresh food was great, however, the atmosphere was not that good. My out of town guest were not very pleased with the food, nor with the service we received.

We love this place. Good down home style buffet. Can't beat the price of all you can eat for $11 and that includes a drink and tax! They also have plates you can order from the kitchen like a fries oyster plate. Fried oysters are not on the buffet. This place gets packed on Friday nights. One of our favorite... More

Jay's Seafood is delicious! The food is served to order or if you'd like to indulge, order the buffet! The salad bar is also very good. Economically, it is a great deal as the buffet, which include, the salad, dessert bars and a drink is under $15.00! I pity all who have not had the pleasure of experiencing Jays! It... More

I have eaten here for numerous years and it keeps getting worse! !! My flounder was not well cooked, water had something in it and the service was not good. Would not recommend it.
