When there on a whim while in area. Clean place. Home style food menu. I had all you could eat popcorn shrimp, green beans, baked beans, corn bread and hush puppies. Wife had baked trout, baked potatoe. Couldn't taste the shrimp in the pop corn, green beans were bland, and still had some strings in them. Baked beans were excellent-dark,... More

I know that many people are not open to change and I have to admit I was skeptical when I heard that Steve's was making a big change in the way they served their buffet food but after trying it, I discovered that this change is for the better. First of all, they provide the customer with a written menu... More

Last night I took my sister and some friends out for sisters birthday. I had raved about how great the cookie jar was. I didn't know they had taken away the food bars. It was a huge disappointment . By having to order off a menu you feel like you are limited to the amount of food you can get.... More

The experience was good and the food was good. They are trying a new way to buffet. You order what you want and it is all you can eat. They prepare it hot each time you want more and just keep it coming. The salad bar is still there.

We have eaten regularly at Steve's for 13 years, but we knew it was for sale. To us it seems that there is new management as the staff is not same. We left after we got there last night because there were no clean tables except tables for six or more. We didnt like the fact of no buffet to... More

The Cookie Jar has been one of the few restaurants in Blairsville for many years now. In years past, it seemed like there was more care taken in preparing flavorful side dishes, but now everything seems like it comes out of a can. I understand that the buffet has been dropped and that they are going to a family style... More

Great food on a very clean and well kept buffet. Staff are great. Very clean, excellent prices. Is one place to go to when in a limited amount of time for lunch. Go in, get your food, eat and head back to work. Even with a few minutes to spare, and stuffed from the wonderful food.

Steve recently eliminated the buffet except for the salad bar. Now you choose what you want from a list of items and servers bring it to your table. It is still all you can eat and just as much variety as before but more sanitary and the pigs at the trough have been eliminated! We understand he is trying to... More

This has been a favorite of ours for many years as a country buffet restaurant. Always great fried chicken and the main items changed daily. You could also have ordered off the menu. This past week, the owners for some reason changed this to a family style restaurant, where you have to wait for the waitress to bring you the... More

There's always something different to try on the buffet -- something for all tastes. Fried chicken every day (and it's great). Usually 3 or 4 meats, good sides & veges (including real Southern ones like greens and hominy), fresh salad bar, soups, breads, and desserts. Try the bread pudding - yum! Menu is good, too (steaks, seafood, burgers, etc.), but... More
