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

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

Good place for Sunday brunch. You won;t leave hungry as it is all-you-can-eat. Desserts are always tasty.

Upon arriving at 11:58 for lunch I thought they were closed due to only two cars in the lot, they were open. My daughter and I decided on lunch she ordered a hamburger it was burned my BLT was very greasy, I think due to the fried green tomatoes on it anyway just not too good. Then there was the... More

We ate lunch there with friends. The friends raved about the fried chicken livers. I had fried chicken and it was ok. The mashed potatoes tasted like they were from a box. My wife had squash casserole and said she couldn't find any squash. However, it tasted alright but was barely luke warm. The service was good but food delivery... More
