We eat, as a family, there every Thursday night....Service is DREADFULLY slow and uninspiring...Food is predictable, sure wish they would change it up now and again...Us old regulars would like to try some new things..A bit costly for the salad bar's limited offerings. More variety would make it worth the money.

I have been to County Seat multiple times and recently have decided to never go back. During my visits to this restaurant they have fixed my order wrong on numerous occasions. When I've asked them to correct it, they do so with an attitude, no apology, and no appropriate customer service. I never eat in as it takes too long... More

Brunch is great! The Creme Brulee French Toast is the bomb! The blueberry muffins are the best! Granny is an excellent Chef.

I have been to this restaurant numerous times, and it doesn't seem to "Wow" me any time I go. It's totally average, overcooked, homestyle comfort food. Oh, and let me add overpriced to that description. Nothing exciting here folks....

This is the most overpriced Sunday Lunch Buffet I've ever had, the food was mediocre at best; been there a couple times before but thought I would give it another try, I won't go back.

Don't expect haute cuisine but expect to have a very reasonably priced good meal. Sometimes the wait for food is a bit longer than you'd like but just relax, talk to your companion(s) and look around. It's like a diner with a more down home atmosphere. I'd also love to have an excuse to buy a pie or cake or... More

Average place. The service is not the great and the prices are a little high for the location.

If you're looking for a place where you can eat tasty traditional american fare (I had BBQ and it was good, with huge portions), this is a great choice. The atmosphere is casual, homey, and inviting, and the service is excellent. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have bands (live music) on Saturdays, and karaoke one Friday a month.... More
