We stopped here the last time we were in Wilmington because hubby wanted his barbecue and supposedly there is none better than in the Carolinas. He only likes barbecued chicken though, which not every restaurant has. This one did though, and we got in just ahead of the church goers that Sunday. People were flocking in there and they must...

This was BY FAR the best buffet/soul food restaurant I have ever visited. Almost everything I had tasted exactly like my mother's cooking. Whether it was the pork bbq, fried whiting, chicken salad, or pecan pie - it ALL was a hit for me. This will definitely be on my must-have list when I return to Wilmington.

If you long for your momma's home cooking or great southern eats, I believe you've found them at Casey's. This is not the BBQ joint, I have assumed I was driving past for the last 2 years. This is the real deal county eats ... in a nostalgic setting, that adds to the charm of this piece of Americana.

In town with the kids for SB & we were seeking something a little different from the typical dinner spots. Well this place was perfect. It's a buffet so there were so many options, even for 3 picky kids. Kids were skeptical but ending up loving this place. It's awesome southern cooking. My 12 yr son even ordered kool-aid, as...

One word: Catfish, that's all that matters!!! Delicious! I'm not typically a fan of buffets but I read the reviews and this place was recommended by so many that I tried it. Excellent food, excellent service, can't wait to go back!

The food here was good and i did enjoy it. Biggest issue is that the buffet is so small you feel crowded trying to fill your plate.

By the way I was there when they acomdatted the gentleman in the motorized scooter. It was crowded we waited about 10 minutes and that's fast compared to the overflow of people. The food is great, hot and fresh. Our server was topnotch. The BBQ is the best I ate it without any sauce. Everything I got was delish and... More

Our hotel had a brochure about this wonderful place, we looked up reviews and decided to give it a shot. Didn't even feel like a restaurant, felt like we were visiting family. My father in law rides an motorized scooter and they went above and beyond to make sure we were in a comfortable spot. The food ALL was so... More

A buffet that surpasses all others. So many items there is no way you can even taste everything. Country cooking and homey atmosphere. Our server was Jeff and he was just awesome. He never let our tea get low and offered to get us anything before we had time to ask. There are foods in the "back" that you can... More
