Great buffet

My family has been coming here for the past 2-3 years when we visit the area to hunt. The buffet is good and has a decent variety of food. Staff is always friendly. No complaints!

We had the buffet for 7.99. The food was great. They have pizza and a salad bar all week (not open on Sunday) and a hot bar that changes each day. The soft serve was awesome.

I have eaten at many nice, luxury restaurants that have got such an incredible service, in many countries around the world. I have never got such a horrible experience anywhere else except at this 'Pizza Bella' restaurant in Ridgeland, South Carolina!

Waitress that waited on me is also in my mugshot magazine! I would think they would do background checks...

The day before we tried Pizza Bella, we went to a "B-B-Q Buffet", which turned out to be a Chinese buffet about one table length long and while adequate, it was very disappointing. So when we saw Pizza Bella's "buffet" we were skeptical but hungry. OMG! We were NOT disappointed. Their pizza was fresh with great tasting dough and a... More

For our taste, the crust was tender and juicy and we picked the ingredients we preferred. We don't like thin, hard crusts. the front desk woman was friendly and helpful and we brought our pizza back to our hotel. there is no delivery.

Was traveling on I 95 and stopped in for a lunch buffet to go ! Learned that I was limited to one meat & two sides, no problem ! Then an employee escorts me to the buffet line and fixed my plate for me ! Not cool !! It's a shame they do this ! Not again !!!

We stopped here on the way home from Disney World. This is a small family owned pizzeria. Nothing fancy, but the food is good, especially after all the commercial restraints I-95 is lined with.
