It was great to eat from a buffet where the food was fresh and tasted good. Much better than typical chain restaurants. My favorite was the fried chicken and Mac & Cheese, the mashed potatoes were also very good. All of the food was homemade, it reminded me of my grandmas cooking. My kids loved... read more

One of the best and only buffets in Richmond Hill. They have amazing southern cooking but particularly the fried chicken and mashed potatoes! The buffet isn't too big but has everything you need. $10 for all you can eat buffet isn't too pricey either

Staying in the Savannah area for about 10 days, I tried several restaurants. Chose this one on Sunday and figured there would be some good, solid southern choices here. There were but more hits than misses on this rather smallish buffet. Salad selection was mostly depleted upon arrival. Was replenished after I chose a couple of southern treats - potato... More

I stopped by without having read the dismal reviews and was surprised when I began this review. I was very pleased with the food. A Sunday buffet included ribs, fried fish, fried chicken, and some delicious Italian meatballs smothered in cheese and tomato sauce. Veggies included some of the best fresh greens I've ever had. They also had black-eyed peas,... More

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
