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

I really hate to eat here, because I eat way too much! It is really well prepared and seasoned food. There are many, many good choices, not just fried chicken. The downfall for me is the desserts, they look good, but are not nearly good as the food on the buffet.

This was the most fantastic food find in almost a solid month of travel, to four different destinations in Fla.! I stayed in Lake City for a week in mid Nov. on a hunting trip, and ate here three times. I was born and raised in Fla., and grew up on 'down-home Southern comfort food', and the food here was...

The service was Very Good in spite of the fact that the employees were constantly cleaning the floor near our table. The atmosphere was pleasant and the value reasonable for the food provided. We...

We have eaten here for years and have always found the selections and the quality of the food to be very good. The buffet is $8.95 and is a bargain. The servers are also on the ball and you never have to ask for a drink refill.

This buffet has extensive options of traditional country cuisine for a great price. One recommendation: save room for the dessert! So many desserts to choose from. My favorites were the chicken wings, the riblets, the mac and cheese, the fried okra, and the brownies. The decor with the collection of cookie jars was very quaint.
