Sunday Brunch has Declined into Sunday Buffet

Nice location and facility in a 100 year-old home. Too bad the quality and selection has declined. Had higher expectations based on past Sunday Brunches here, but this has declined into a more limited Sunday Buffet with a few uninspired breakfast options and lower overall food quality (except for... read more

The latest Health Department Unsatisfactory score sez it all. We ate at the Foster House recently and were not pleased with the food. Since lots of folks say its a good place to eat we have been watching for news. Not a good report, and a score usually found at some the Chinese restaurants on Buford highway!!

Good local spot in an historic house. I have used it for a shower and a dinner and was very pleased. The staff was pleasant to work with and the food is very good. Nice setting for ladies!

A nice quaint setting. However, the food is very sub par. There are two other buffets near by that offer much better food at a lower price. There is very little variety and food temperatures are not adequately maintained.

Save your money. $12.95 buffet for dried out pork loin, overcooked 25 cent size pieces of sausage? Never could get any chicken. Every few minutes another pan would come out of the kitchen and the stampede was on. Ran out of pork loin and replaced it with undercooked fish filets. Banana pudding was good, Styrofoam cup a nice touch. Good... More

Enjoyed lunch there on Sunday. Great selection of food. Service was great! Fried chicken can't be beat anywhere. Everything homemade down to peach cobbler. Nice atmosphere and reasonable cost.

First time at the Foster House for lunch. We had great fried green tomatoes, with a yummy sauce. Chicken salad plate and pimento cheese sandwich. Prices were good and everyone was really nice. Ready to try the Sunday lunch Buffett! Make sure to visit soon! You won't be disappointed!

FOSTER HOUSE The only night they are open is Friday when they have music and a country buffet for $12.95 Recently I had this buffet for the first time. It was a bargain having the buffet with music included. However the buffet was more limited than I had expected with only fried chicken and fried fish as the 2 meats.... More

Renovated house, quaint,quiet, beautiful inside. They offer coupons a lot. Hard to find, remember, it's a house. Downtown Cumming, worth the effort.

This restaurant is housed in what once was a family home. Each room provides a cosy intimate setting, where you can actually carry on a conversation. The food is home style and delicious. I had a cup of chicken and dumpling soup that was hearty and hot, and a three-vegetable entree. It was all delicious and so filling I had... More
