OK, this is not haute cuisine, but the food is down home country and extremely satisfying, and just plain good.. The only criticism I have is that a few more beers to choose from would be welcome. Not all of us enjoy chugalugging Bud lite or Miller lite. They do have some other beers but not many. We don't go... More

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.

Visited South Boston during the 2014 Dixie World Series. Good burger and salad bar. Definitely worth the visit and definitely beats the chain restaurants.

Food was excellent and was very sorry we had waited till the morning we were leaving to eat there. Service was great and was very clean and had a beautiful view out the back. We had over 20 people in a large family group. We were early so were seated immediately and servers were very attentive and they even paid... More

I have dined here several times previously and feel that the quality of this restaurant and the food is going downhill. After stopping by again, I felt that I should write a review. The food: inconsistent. Carved beef was tasteless. Seafood casserole seemed like it was made from leftovers of previous buffets and had entirely too much breading. Fried chicken... More
