Business lunch during buffet. Good variety on the buffet. Everything I tried was very good. I especially like the different babeque sauces available.

Booked a reservation a week in advance get there and nope it is not there. No one would even come over and explain it to me. When I told the young lady we had one and pointed out who took it she apologized half hardily and sat us bunched into one table. The food was good but not over the... More

They have a Sunday buffet, chicken, cat fish, pulled pork my girl friend told me that there chicken and dumpling's where as good as her mom used to make. Plenty of choices, we use to go to the all you can eat chicken restaurant, unless they have the fried pork chops its not worth going. The sides, salads and deserts... More

Have been here on a few occasions, and have never been overly impressed. After eating at some truly wonderful barbecue restaurants (Ridgewood barbecue, for example), Pratt's is just mediocre. The service has never been anything special either.

We ordered take out, nothing special just chicken and ribs. I don't ear ribs, but my husband said they were good. My chicken was very tender and fell right off the bone. The bbq sauce was very good. The sides were another story. The mash potatoes tasted like something you'd get in an hospital. The mac and cheese was very... More

Visited at 8:00 on a Saturday night, they weren't very busy. We were seated & told someone would be right with us. 10 minutes later no one had come to the table although a server delivered meals to the table across from us. She didn't acknowledge us or the table directly behind them, a group of 4 who apparently had... More

The rib were very good and we loved the sauce but the ribs were a bit fatty. It'd be nice if they had something else to drink besides beer but the food was really good! Good for families too

The last few times my family has gone to Pratts, the food quality, quantity, and service has gotten worse and worse. Today everyone's food was bland and soggy. My daughter had some random chunk of mystery meat between her serving basket and the paper liner. Once we received our meager meal, our waitress wasn't seen again until she brought the... More

Have stopped here a couple of times. First time, we had the buffet and it was really good with a large selection. Recently we stopped for a quick bite. Had good service and we enjoyed a pork BBQ sandwich. We also enjoyed the banana pudding for desert!
