Fun Southern Kitsch. This buffet has every good ole fashioned down home Southern Country food that you could want. Southern hospitality; with the exception of the young'un at the register during our visit who seemed irritated during our checkout. Have a hankering for plump juicy 'maters. Yep you... read more

The buffet is outstanding and the price is right. I consider it better than most buffets I've eaten at in Florida. Clean and they keep it fully stocked even during the "off" hours... i.e. 2pm. I eat there at least once every trip into this area. Love it.

We love going here as it is always clean and the service staff are quick to take care of you. Fried Chicken, pork chops, as well as the country vegetables of cream corn, lima's, black eye peas, turnips and the must have cornbread! They also have a large area of desserts that are all old school style as well. Large... More

This buffet does have a lot of food, a lot of choices. But when I went the food was pretty mediocre.

Anytime we have guests from out of town, this is where we go. Plenty of different country foods - greens, black eyed peas, fried fish/chicken, yeast rolls, sweet tea, banana pudding and more. Never disappointed. Our version of Golden Corral - country-fied :)

It was lunch hour and the place was packed. Now I know why. The food is hot, fresh, and very tasty. A lot were locals, but some of us you could tell was our first time to be there. Due to our glassy eyes looking at the fried chicken, collards, okra, and fried catfish. I left full and satisfied. The... More

Was hesitant at first as I'm not a huge fan of buffets, but I was surprised when everything was prepared "homemade" and they had a great selection. The price was great as there was steak, fried chicken, catfish and other proteins. Salad bar had fresh veggies, and the deserts were on point. For the money you can't beat it for... More
