Good food great service

We have past this place in our travels over the years but never when we were hungry. We came by at lunch one day and decided to stop in. They had a very large buffet of country cooking. We were greeted as we entered and showed us to our seat and directed us to the buffet. The food was good... read more

There was not one thing good about it. Will never go back. Worse restaurant ever! Do not recommend. Bad fried chicken, veggies out of a can, the desserts were so terrible. It was a total waste of money. The inside needs work..no atmosphere at all. Old and smelly.

A very disappointing experience. The food tasted ok. The meals were expensive. The only thing positive about the restaurant was the location. It had lots of space and kids could run around freely. The service was extremely poor. It took long for the food to arrive. And when it did, they forgot to prepare one person's meal. He only got... More

This is a great place to eat. We stop here every time we come to the coast. The staff are very friendly and make sure you don't need for anything. The food is so good. The fried chicken is wonderful. I think I have tried just about everything. Enjoyed it all.

We have been to this restaurant before and were excited to go back seeing as they are listed on the Myrtle Beach Promotions discount card for a discounted meal. Well, turns out the place was sold a while back and the new owners are not accepting the discount card any longer. Everything still looks the same as in the past-along... More

Worst food I ever had. Got there 1:30 and they were out of most of everything including potatoes. They wouldn't refill anything because they were cloing in 30 minutes. What is homemade? Whatever was left was canned including dessert.

Just one of the best buffets around. Charming place with no frills. Just good food and caring staff. Fried chicken on the buffet daily but fried squash on Wednesday! Then every day features certain meats and vegetables. They gladly give you a pocket sized menu listing what meat is served on what day. Have had meatloaf and seafood and no... More

I decided to give this restaurant a second chance as I continued to hear wonderful things about this place, and that I must have gotten here just at closing time. I found the food to be absolutely delicious! The fried chicken was everything I had heard it to be and there was an abundance of other "comfort food." The biscuits... More

This place does not look like much inside or out, but the crowds inside are the first clue that good food is inside. It is a strictly buffet place, and the menu changes a bit every day. Everything I have had their has been superb. The fried chicken (nearly always on the buffet) is simply the best.
