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.

I think I've been to Jay's twice before and the first time, the food was good, but I was seated in a large room with bad acoustics and it was terribly LOUD. The next time, I was in a smaller room, and the food was good. I tried the fried shrimp this time, and they were small, and I guess... More

While visiting the area with my Son-in-law, Daughter and Grandson we decided to try this establishment. If you are into heavy fried food, then this is the place for you. If you are looking for healthy then I would suggest you stay away. Even though the buffet was only $11.00 it is mainly (85%) fried foods. Should you choose to... More

If you want a good place to eat, sometimes you have to get off Main Street. Way off. Nestled in a tight curve on a country road way past the local county fairgrounds is where you need to head. I've heard about this place for years and have even tried to stop by a couple of times but they weren't... More

Fried shrimp and flounder doesn't get any better than this. There is a buffet, but I like to order off the menu. Great onion rings and hush puppies, and the tea is always fresh. Worth a visit any time you're near.
