Had the best selection of foods we like for under $20! Now that is a deal you can't resist! Well worth the ride from New Bern, Get there early, as lots of locals patronize it and the seats get filled up quickly!

I just arrived back in the area two weeks ago and discovered that it is being renovated and turned into a Mexican Restaurant. My family lives this app when we travel and it's so helpful to have up to date info.

A person who is dieting should not go out for a business lunch to a buffet; but I don't care. They have many healthy choices, a wonderful salad bar, great desserts, and a very sweet staff, especially our server, Costina. The fried chicken, yummy. Collard greens, shrimp, potatoes, banana pudding, chocolate brownies, ice cream. And much much more! I really... More

We travel a great deal between NC and SC and always try to time it to eat at the Front Porch. Buffet is outstanding with delicious vegetables prepared as southerners like them. Don't miss this if you are going through Elizabethtown at lunch time.

We arrived Sunday afternoon. This was the most expensive time during the week to get all-you-can-eat from the buffet. But the servers were constantly bringing hot food out from the kitchen so we thought this the best time for fresh vegetables and a steaming hot meat. We were correct on both accounts! There was a salad bar, with 5 fruits.... More

Terrible. The worst buffet I have ever experienced. There was nothing redeeming. The restaurant was also very dirty. It was like a place on Kitchen Nightmares, Chef Ramsay needs to stop by.

No seasoning in the food on the buffet. The only thing that didn't taste like frozen food was the chicken (good luck at getting to that)!
