The Salvation Army had the pleasure of enjoying the high-quality food and cozy goodness of The Flame more than a year ago and I remember the food being REALLY good!

I heard from several co-workers that Flame was the best caterer in the area so I was excited to hear that they would be catering the USMC Birthday Ball in New Bern. What I wasn't prepared for was how absolutely terrible it would be. The appetizer salads had watered down dressing. The entree was a combination of salmon and beef.... More

had heard a lot about this Sunday brunch went today plenty of food price reasonable bring your church bulletin for a fifteen percent discount. Food was ok nothing exceptional but plenty to eat and to choose from. Expected much more. Traveled from Oriental NC just to come to brunch about 25 miles. I don't think we will do it again.

The Flame is only open on Sundays. It's a good family buffet for after church on Sundays. There are always plenty of choices from salads to desserts. It's a good comfort food experience. Make reservations for special Sundays like Mother's Day, Easter, they fill up fast.

I wanted to advise if you plan to enjoy their buffet you must call in advance. We enjoyed the Easter buffet very much and planned to return for Mother's Day. The morning of The Flame publishes a large ad in the Sun Journal...reservations are required. I immediately called. They were filled. Plan ahead and call in advance.

Previously have enjoyed the extensive Sunday buffet which has a generous assortment of choices, and so reasonably priced.

The shrimp bisque is to DIE for. The food is a fancy twist on southern NC favorites. My family and I go for every holiday, and everybody is always so excited for it! Chef Smoke always comes out to get to know his customers, and very friendly staff. We love it!

Been here several times for banquets and it is greasy flavorless standard banquet fair. Would never go out of my way to book this for any event.

Have eaten here multiple times over the years and never been disappointed. Smoke, the owner, caters too and never fails to please. The food is always tastes great no matter what it is. No bad choices here.
