GREAT IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOME DOWN HOME SOUTHERN COOKING

From the time we walked in the door we felt at home. The service was great. We never had to ask for anything they were constantly checking to see if we needed anything.

Down home cooking. Food is actually seasoned unlike most buffets who forgo seasonings for cost I imagine. Wish the salad bar was a little more expansive.

Buffet and family style, the food is Southern and delicious. Unique decor surrounds and the antiques can be purchased if one catches your eye!

The food was good, but not exceptional. The only option was the buffet which included the usual selection of vegetables, soup and salad. Fried and baked chicken along with hamburger steak were the entrees. The service was very good. Our waitress was very friendly and made sure our glasses were never empty. The buffet price was $12, tax included. While... More

If you like true Southern Cooking...then this is the place to go! Always fresh, hot dishes...and the Fried Chicken is just like Grandma's! Atmosphere is interesting with all the collectibles displayed throughout the restaurant! Only wish they would increase their dessert line with 1 or 2 more items to select from.

Went for lunch and normally dont eat that much in the middle of the day. Great buffet, food was all fresh and good. If you go, go hungry!!! I did not save room for dessert. Next time I will. I wanted to try the banana pudding or the peach cobbler w ice cream but just couldnt do it.

Great buffet. With the world of fast food this is a great alternative. Each dish is homemade. It's like Sunday dinner everyday.

We'd be in agreement that Friday night may well be the best night to come to Movie Star. That may also be the reason the place is starting to pack in wall to wall. Glad we got here and ate a bit earlier than most. It is country buffet, so don't expect fancy. If you have any interest, the walls... More

This place is on our rotation for Sunday lunch spots, and has a great country buffet for a good price.
