Really good buffet

We took our Aunt when visiting because she hasn't been able to go for awhile because it's only open for dinner. I was pleasantly surprised by the food. Most everything is fried so don't expect a healthy meal but it is very good. We really enjoyed the fried fish, fried oysters, fried pickles... read more

We have always enjoyed going here for dinner. Most of the food is fried, of course, but there is grilled chicken and fish too. Not much in the way of dessert but I'm usually too full to have dessert. My daughter and I always enjoy the gumbo.

Stop here to eat anytime I'm in the area. Fried oysters, shrimp and fish. Grilled fish and boiled shrimp with fixings. All are great. Ms.Charlotte was a terrific waitress on my last visit.

This restaurant was a family style seafood buffet that catered to every class of people. The wait staff was super efficient. The girls at the entrance set the tone where we gave a name. They said just throw out any name that comes to mind and I gave them Santa Claus! The food was great, especially the Hushpuppies which were... More

Went there for our wedding anniversary and the food was great. My wife is more of the seafood eater than I am but at least they had BBQ, Chicken Tenders, Fries, and other alternative items to choose form. Prices are reasonable for a buffet. Make sure you get there early cause there are usually lines prior to the 5pm opening.

There is nothing on the buffet authentic! Everything is processed in similarities of seafood. The only thing that looks like what it is was the peel and eat shrimp and they were so small it. Second visit after many years and last!

The food was a little greasy but still ok. I do wish there was more grilled and steamed items, though. I think that particular time wasn't a good one for them so we may try again. Second time may be a charm!
