Food was great and there is allot of it. It seemed expensive for the area but the whole area is strewn with fast food. This place is worth a look. Like many places in the south looks are deceiving but the product speaks for itself. Chicken parm was great cheese bread and their meet sauces was very good.

is better. The salad bar is the same, the pizza is the same, the lasagna is less than comparable to something you might find in the Piggly Wiggly freezer, and the spaghetti has no meat. There really isn't any culinary reason to go there although the service is good and friendly. I'm sorry for them. They deserve better food to... More

Went for Sunday Buffett again. Great food and great service. The guy that owns it is very appreciative of your business and comes by to offer food and check on you.

Had a most pleasant meal here - good, home style Italian food and great service. The portions are very generous, so bring your appetite! It's not a fancy restaurant- more like a big Italian family eating in the kitchen - not the dining room. And that's the sense we got from this place - the guests were treated like family!

The night I came in it wasn't busy. The people were very nice and helpful. The food was awesome! It was more than I could finish. I really liked garlic bread. I highly recommend eating here.

Made reservations and could not get a table. Got passed over two times. The food here is decent, but not worth being passed over for "friends" it is fortunate they are in a small town, otherwise they would not be in business long.
