The house containing this restaurant is a beautiful old Southern home right on the main street of Social Circle. Buffet contains different meat, fish, vegetables of all kinds (fried green tomatoes are delicious), and a dessert table of cakes and pies. You will not go away hungry. Very reasonable pricing. The pricing is higher on weekends as the buffet has... More

Took my cousins for traditional southern food. Staff was great. We ate buffet style. The food options was; mash potatoes/gravy, ham, Mac and cheese, Lima beans, fried chicken and lots more. I would go back.

Delicious and Southern! Food doesn't get any better. The fried green tomatoes are the best. The only thing that takes away from them is the tomato chutney is to sweet. Ranch dressing from the salad bar is a better balance of flavors for them, so try it.

During a recent trip to Georgia, I visited Blue Willow once on my own and then brought my husband back to enjoy the delicious southern cooking. The food was fresh, piping hot, with such great variety. The fried chicken was out of this world! The service was so friendly and welcoming, and we couldn't believe how affordable the food was....

We returned to Blue Willow and found the service to be excellent. When I previously reviewed, it must have been an off night.

I took my wife and my two daughters to the Blue Willow Inn (had been there several years ago) and we were all somewhat underwhelmed. This is a buffet-style restaurant and the food is mediocre at best. For the four of us, it was close to $100 for a Sunday lunch. If I had to do it all again, I... More

Fresh and tasteful and always have good customer service. Its a crowd when I go but, it moves pretty fast. It looks as if it was... More

Our table of 4 was very impressed with the quality and taste of the buffet items that Blue Willow Inn offered. Although this was a very busy day for them, they were able to keep up and continued to refresh the items that were depleted. I love the personalized service that you get from your waitress when you are taken... More

My cousin and his wife were en route to Charleston, and we decided to meet at Blue Willow for lunch. The sumptuous lunch buffet did not disappoint. We were treated to a bountiful salad table, homemade soups, biscuits, corn bread, several choices of meat and vegetables, and a whole table of desserts. Yum! Be sure to try the chicken and... More
