Its a buffet and seemed overpriced. Although the Fried Chicken and mashed potatoes were good. Desserts were nothing special - which was disappointing. I figured those would be the star attraction.

The quality of the food was very poor. The macaroni and cheese was gummy, abd tasted like cardboard that had a can of cheez whiz poured on it. The fried okra was greasy and drowned in salt. The red beans were way under cooked. There were no identifiable pieces of pork seasoning in any of these "Soul Food" dishes.The fried... More

This restaurant's food is good with a large buffet selection, but their prices are outrageous for buffet meal. The country shop is nice though.

You can't go wrong here especially if you have a big appetite. The advertised 100 foot buffet does not disappoint. From salads to meats, vegetables, seafood and poultry, if you can't get full it is your own fault. Great desserts also. Prices are either $8.99 or $10.99 excluding drinks depending upon when you visit.

Large buffet with a lot of variety to choose from. Food was hit and good. We loved getting to shop after eating. They have 6 oz bottles of Dr. Pepper which I can't find in my town so I buy as many as I can when we stop.

We've past through this area a few other times but never when we were hungry. We had even stopped in their country store a few times. It's a decent place to take a break on a long trip. We happened to hit Benton in time for dinner on a recent trip and decided to try it out. It was OK.... More

Thought we enjoy a nice dinner. However the meat and seafood was all seasoned the same and all very overcooked! Didn't know shrimp was supposed to raw batter on the inside and very crunchy on the outside. The fish was the same way. Employees held conversations in another language between themselves in the dining room. The restrooms were nastier than... More

We stopped here after seeing all the highway signs....and although it is a huge buffet, the food is only mediocre. Almost everything tastes frozen or like it came from a can. It is basically "help yourself" so service is not really a factor. We were there during a busy time so some items were out or very low. The only... More

This a supper buffet with plenty to eat for whatever you are hungry for. You can watch your diet eating here just leave off the fried meats and deserts. We did great there and enjoyed the country store as well. On our way from Branson we always have our noon meal there on our way home.
