Great food, popular, fair price

The crowd that always seems to be here is a good indicator of how good the food is. The wait staff are extremely polite and attentive, without being annoying. The buffet is all-you-can-eat, so the price is a little high. However, the variety and quality of food is worth the price.

When we wandered up the street from the casino, We came across a gem in the rough. The breakfast buffet is excellent and price and selection is great. It is also very clean.

I visited Granny's for dinner. It's only a 1/4 mile down the road from the casino, so it's convenient. The buffet doesn't have a lot of options - 3 or 4 vegetables and 3 meats plus a salad bar. The salad options were pretty decent, the fried chicken was above average, and the carved roast beef was a bit below... More

Flavorless, shells in scrambled eggs. $11.01 for buffet and coffee for one. The pattie sausage was not fully cooked, the scrambled eggs were clumps (not to mention shells again), biscuits were hard, the link sausage was 80% pork - 20% fat. If in Cherokee go to Waffle House, McDonalds, Taco Bell or Huddle House for breakfast it would be cheaper... More

This place is bad. If you're checking tripadvisor to get a restaurant review before you go there, then I assume you are wanting a great meal? We stopped here b/c the parking lot was packed and the name "granny's" shouted southern cooking and i was starving!! There is no menu here, only a small buffet ($8.95 + $1.89 drink) Every... More

Most of our vegetables are peeled and prepared fresh every day. Very few of our vegetables are canned, but for those that are, we do season and cook them for several hours, so they are not opened, heated and served. There is a reason the parking lot is always full, and often there is a line out the door. We... More

It was season-opening day at Granny's. The place was packed. The entire Fire Department was there. We waited for about 15 minutes and were seated. It was well worth the wait! As a first-time visitor to Cherokee, the sheer volume of people and food was impressive. I will visit again!

If you are looking for some good ole country cooking that is beyond outstanding, then you must go to granny's kitchen. If you want a country cooked breakfast, then you must make a week-end stop at granny's and enjoy that hot bar with country gravy.

This was certainly not the best tasting meal I've had in my entire life. I'm not a buffet person either, so I was surprised when I walked in and realized what I had done. The atmosphere was average and clean. What stood out above all was the friendliness of the staff, from the greeter, waitresses, meat cutter (I'm sure he... More

For quick bite it is pretty good. Medium quality food, medium quality service and friendliness. Just what you would expect from a "good" local country establishment.
