Family Place

It's no fine dining, and not McDonalds, but is largely self-service. The place is clean, the food average family style. To me this place falls between the chairs, and I have not been back although I live within a few miles..

caught them playing a bait and switch game with their coupons. we had discount coupon for dinner, buy one get one. we asked the hostess are you on Dinner time. She said yes. I would say dinner/lunch was average, not special. when they brought the bill we noticed they had not charged for one of our drinks. My husband showed... More

We had been there years ago and didn't really like it but thought sometimes things improve or it was just an off day when we were there first. So we tried it again about a year ago still kind of dirty ,food not great, service not very good but the greeters were friendly. I really have no need to go... More

HUNGRY!! this is the place to go and have so many choices. Everything is ready and waiting. this place is not as busy as Fred's and the food is just as good. If you go for breakfast at the right time, you may just get the lunch items being brought out. You definitely wont leave hungry

This restaurant is a southern's dream. Everything here is delicious. I really recommend the fried chicken and the corn bread. The bread pudding and cobbler was also delicious. The servers were friendly and fast and my glass was never empty. An all you can eat buffet with fresh southern cooking for less than $12 with drink included cannot be beat.

This restaurant has been here for years. It is your old-fashioned southern cooking buffet type meal. If this is what you're looking for you will definitely enjoy this restaurant. Just be sure you're hungry, there are lots of choices!

This buffet always puts a smile on our faces. The wife always looks forward to their Strawberry Shortcake. I love their fried chicken. The pork sausage was particularly good this time. Clean, big bathrooms, smiling staff and customers; all led to a wonderful dining experience in Plant City.

Salad was excellent. Beef, meatloaf, fish, chicken, a wide variety of veggies. Strawberry shortcake bar. Many deserts (peach cobbler was delicious). It's self-serve other than the server brings drinks, complimentary rolls & cornbread, and complimentary fried green tomatoes. Everything was good - only exception was the cantaloupe had turned. Our server was ridiculous - turned and walked away from someone... More
