It's hard to find a restaurant that uses real collard greens.. Everything was delicious. The fried chicken and BBQ chicken was excellent... I would recommend this to all my family and friends.

Kelly's has got to be one of the better family style restaurants in the area. Each time I've been they have had at least three kinds of BBQ, smoked chicken, fried chicken, corn bread, pecan pie. mmmmmmmmmm. I swear, it's like Pavlov's dawg each time I think about it. It can get a little backed up and you may have... More

This all you can eat buffet features pulled pork bbq, fried chicken, beef brisket, southern side dishes and desserts. While they have a huge variety of choices, the quality is sub-par. The bbq and brisket were greasy, fatty and dry/ overcooked. The casseroles seem to have been in warming pans for hours. The peach cobbler was a sweet flour based... More

Located on HWY 78, Lincolnville Sc. This quaint little place specializes in Hometown cooking. Its buffet style. Come in, pay, fix your own plate (drink) and seat yourself. Plastic utensils, and foam plates. Not exactly my cup of tea, but it works I suppose. Our group of 4, 2 adults & 2 children was about $35 dollars total. You can... More

We went to Kelly’s on the way from Congaree to Charleston. It was a Saturday night and the place was packed (it seemed mainly with locals). We had to wait about 15 minutes for a seat. We decided to go to try some Southern comfort foods and we were not disappointed. I can’t make a comparison to other establishments similar... More

I go on Thursdays night. All you can eat Fried Catfish. The best in the low country. Also, the pecan pie is on top of my desert list. Great Sweet Tea. Its all good even the barbeque.

This is a buffet and uses styrofoam plates and plastic silverware, so don't expect anything fancy. Given that, the food is pretty good. The pork was good, but we weren't impressed by the brisket. But then we are used to traveling to Texas for Beef Brisket BBQ. We enjoyed alot of the sides. Especially the cabbage casserole and the corn... More
