As a petite 5'11" 290 retired Marine, I have passed this place numerous times over the years and finally had a chance to stop. The price was fair and if you like southern food(gravy and fried) then i believe you'll like Brown's. I was here for the lunch buffet and it was hot and fresh. You can use both sides... More

very polite staff and fun for whole family. We ate breakfast and was greeted by friendly staff. Gift ideas are definitely easy to choose here. Rock candy in the gift shop area is a plus!!

They may have been good 20 + years ago but they definitely aren't now. The fish was hard on the outside and the inner portion had the consistency of rubber , the greens had a foul taste to them and the trace creek potatoes were equally as bad. The deserts were more sugar than anything else and lacked both taste... More

I love little kitchy tourist places like this but unfortunately what this place lacked in the taste and appearance of their food the atmosphere could not make up for. The food was edible but unremarkable and probably originated from a can or other premade source. This is a buffet and it is absolutely sloppy. Now I know it's hard to... More

Seems like everything here is fried. And what isn't fried is bland. Quality has gone down hill. It used to be sooo good. Now it's just OK.

This is advertised as a traveler's stop. Many of the customers inside were folks traveling or truck drivers. So these are people looking for decent food and lots of it for a reasonable price. This restaurant hits the mark. I would definitely return. The food I selected to eat was better than most buffet style restaurants and even desert was... More

I have tried eating here many times through the years and unfortunately this last time was just like all the others. On the outside the place looks like you are really going to have a good country meal. As soon as you walk in your happy feeling deflates. The ambience is dark, old, and it doesn't inspire a good meal.... More
