This was extremely disappointing. Food is at best mediocre. Most tastes canned. Nothing is great. Don't waste your time.

We went in last night to eat there for the first time. I asked to order a menu item and was told it would take thirty minutes longer than normal, forcing me to either get the buffet or not eat. The good was cold, had an awful taste. The Mac and cheese looked like something from someone's garbage disposal. The... More

But the mac and cheese and the mashed potatoes were pretty good.The prices were high for the little food that was on... More

Good choice for a buffet. Wait staff are very friendly and will keep checking on you often. Open on Thanksgiving Day. Many desserts to choose from, as well as a variety of foods.

The first time I stopped at Southern Image, I loved the food, and was even more blown away by the service, and then, to complete the experience, their dessert table is TO DIE FOR! I have been there twice since, and whenever I am driving from Florida, I make sure to stop here. Ladies and Gents, this is a place... More

If you're looking for down-home Southern cooking and a comfortable atmosphere, this is the place to go! Excellent buffet with a decent variety of home-cooked meals. Yes, it is NOT like the big chains which is what makes it so wonderful! The price is right for the buffet and if you decide to have something else, there is a menu... More

If you want a meal that tastes like someone's mom made it at home, this is the place to get it. I love the buffet and the variety it offers. Of you don't like buffet style eating, they have a great menu as well. Perfect place for Sunday dinner if you don't want to cook.

Really good, simple food. Selection is a little limited compared to some of the big national restaurant chain buffets, but much better. Good place to go to get away from the burger and fries habit. Real vegetables! Nice staff, not too expensive.

We travel from Florida to New York and Boston a couple of times each year. This restaurant, at exit 87 on I-95 in Georgia (turn right after the ramp), has become a stop de rigeur for us. Although they have a menu, we have always eaten at the unlimited buffet, which is quite varied and just excellent. There are wide... More
