They offer a wide variety of "Classic American" food at a great price, and are right next to the historic field where Pickett's Charge occurred.

Incredible variety, quality, and service! Chicken soup tasted homemade. Fresh salad bar. Tasty desserts and with 8 options for sweet treats it was hard to choose! Carved meats very tender. Everyone was very hospitable. Gary turned a snowy cold day into a sunny one. Thank you for treating our large group with such excellence!!

Great buffet! Good home style cooking with a huge dessert bar! Either make a reservation or get there early because they fill up quick!

We were not sure exactly what we wanted to eat on the Friday evening but figured a buffet would give everyone plenty of choices. We were pleasantly surprised when we discovered it was Seafood night on the buffet. The Crab legs were cooked perfectly and they were brought out timely and were plentiful, a little expensive but we ate our... More

During months of planning our family trip I looked up Gen.Picket's buffet. Everything sounded good at the time, but I wondered would it be as good in person. The answer, no it was way better. Busy yes but you expect that with great food and friendly service. After a long day it was just the place to sit,relax and fill... More

Stopped here because it looked busy and we like buffets. Service was good and friendly but the food was mediocre at best. Would have been a good price if the food had been better.

Maybe I am being harsh, but this place is really about "all you CAN eat" which places quantity over everything else......some people undoubtedly like this.

Popular place especially with the tour groups so it can get a little crowded. Selections include baked ham & roast beef, fried chicken, and sliced (real) turkey in gravy, plus several side items (vegetables & such), a nice salad bar, and a variety of home-made desserts. There is a gift shop and the battle theater wax museum attached (the restaurant... More
