Great service, good food, and lots of it. Get there early because is can get crowed on Friday night for the seafood. The wait staff is very nice and makes sure you are comfortable.

I ate at this location and drove 30 miles one way just to eat there. The food is outstanding and the servers are #1 in the nation. They really care about their customers. I would recommend highly to anyone traveling through South Boston, Va. to find Earnie's.

My girl friend and I went to Ernie's for lunch for my birthday. I didn't realize they were open for lunch on Saturdays but they were and had the buffet up. I thought it was as good as ever. Great food, great service and lots of fun.

At first, I was surprised at the small size of the buffet, but after trying a little of everything, I was pleased to find that the food tasted home cooked and delicious! I actually prefer a smaller buffet such as this, with high quality food done right, instead of places that offer more quantity but scrimp on quality. We also... More

The food and the atmosphere was great. All for under $10 per person. My wife brother and sisters and family have gone to Ernie's several times because its centrally located to all of us. This was my first visit and boy was I pleased.
