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!

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!

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.

Took our extended family there for Mother's Day Brunch. The door staff were quick to get us seated and to get us our drinks. The normal style here is a brunch that is absolutely delicious and varies from prime rib to seafood. There is a mix of fried, broiled and baked so everyone had something they really liked.
