Great Southern Buffet Sunday

Man, this place has been around forever but our first visit was a couple of weekends ago. We came again today because it's perfect for Sunday brunch/lunch. Great southern home cooking. And our server, Macie, was the best. A truly great family restaurant.

This restaurant is now open at lunch time Monday through Friday and on Sunday. The buffet was no better or worse than similar restaurants in the area. The shrimp creole was bland and without flavor. The balance of the buffet was good. The staff was extremely courteous. Despite the average rating , I will return.

Shell In has the Best food in town! You better get it while they are open! I've been eating here since I was 14-15 years old. Many loyal customers besides me and the quality of food and quality of service is what makes them stand out above the rest.

I think, hands down this is the best place in Rock Hill to get good ole southern food. Fried Chicken, Fried Okra, Fried Squash and all of the other fixins that are on the Buffett. Unfortunately I hear that they are closing down...Please don't close down!!!!!

Very good Sunday buffett. Plenty to chose from, 2-3 meats and several veggies, they bring out deserts to you , wish they would have a desert bar and get all you want, kinda pricey as well but everything is good.
