Fried chicken fix

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

We stopped here for diner while traveling North on I-95. We selected here based on reviews my wife looked up, especially comments about their Christian leanings. We were promptly seated and told that we could check out the buffet prior to making our choice. We chose the buffet. There were several salads, like Grandma used to make, The meat choices... More

Surprisingly elegant dining room, salad bar was good, but buffet was Great! I don't eat fried chicken in restaurants, but their fried chicken looked so good, I had to try it and was not disappointed! Chicken cooked three different ways, plenty of country style veggies to choose from, and the cheesiest mac & cheese you've ever had! Fish and porkchops... More

This was the second time that we ate here, the buffet each time. This time they had beef stroganoff, it was not good. The rest was just okay. Salad bar was disappointing, very little there. Pork chops were extremely thin. Mac and cheese was good as were the green beans. Desserts looked better than they tasted.

Don't listen to the complainers this is far and above other buffet restaurants. Great regional style dishes and the staff is friendly and helpful.

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 the Salisbury Steak and cornbread.... More

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
