“Best food in the area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

We live in Gulf Shores and eat out pretty frequently. This is nearly always our first choice (unless we're in the mood for pizza or Thai food). We love it here...great food, friendly atmosphere, casual and best of all, a GREAT value! If you miss out on this place you missed out on one of the best places our area has to offer.

“Great food and fast service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Food tastes great and getting it takes only as long as it takes to walk from the door to the buffet. Very family friendly. There are servers working the buffet line, just tell them what you like and they will fix your plate in seconds. Very, very happy to find this place after waiting long times at other restaurants in the area. They are open for lunch and some nights for dinner. Check their hours before you visit. Price included taxes, drinks, and dessert. You can't beat it.

“Wow! What a Bargain!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

My wife and I stopped at Eat for lunch. Food is served cafeteria/buffet style and is all-inclusive AYCE for...$10! There were several entrees. Since the portions were not overly large, I had country-fried steak and meat loaf, with white and brown gravy respectively. Very yummy comfort food. Unlike a lot of wallpaper-paste-type white gravies, theirs was rather light and very tasty. My wife had seafood creole - which had a nice spicy kick and jambalaya. She was very pleased. We also sampled the cajun pasta, which was good, but not exceptional. Sides included mashed potatoes, green beans and mixed veggies. There was also an adequate salad bar. Desserts included chocolate bread pudding and cherry cobbler. Remember...this is AYCE. I don't know how anybody could avoid the temptation to overdo it a bit.
Service was extremely friendly and attentive.
The $20 tab for our two lunches included tax - which, I believe is 10% around here. Really good food for a tiny bit more than the fast food joints charge. No wonder so many locals come here!
The menu changes daily. We will definitely come back!

“Great Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

Quality buffet with well prepared food. We normally get the $10 all Inclusive lunch, drink and desert. Chris does a good job with this place. Would recommend it to anyone.
