“Down home southern food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

We were visiting from Iowa, and asked a local where to find a good buffet, she recommended Granny Cantrell's. We were not disappointed! The food was so delicious, it was like sitting down to a home cooked meal at Grandmas house. The price was very fair. There was even dessert, cakes and pies that you cut yourself as big or small as you wanted. The atmosphere was very "down south" and homey.

“Down home cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Panama city has an abundance of great seafood but it is difficult to find alternatives. Granny Cantrells is a great alternative. It is a country style buffet featuring items like southern fried chicken , pork chops, chicken livers, beef tips along with vegetables like greens and red beans, cabbage, mashed potatoes and gravy and much more. It is all very fresh and very "homemade " tasting. The pric is about the same as Golden Corral but the quality is far superior. A great dessert line up too!

“A bit overpriced for the selection”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

One thinks this will be a good Southern "meat 'n 3" restaurant with a good selection of meats and vegetables to have a traditional, old-fashioned, lunchtime meal - reminiscent of days without air conditioners and flies flitting in through open windows or screen doors. It was a bit over-priced for the buffet and the flavors were a bit bland.

“Poor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

The food was terrible and the seats were really bad. They had the slat type seats which really make it for an unpleasant dinning experience. Besides they closed a long time ago.

“This is a great place to eat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We have ate here regularly and always enjoy it. The restaurant is always clean and all the staff are friendly and helpful. The food is good old southern style cooking. It is very reasonably priced and is set up as a buffet style. A lot of local people eat here..one of those best kept secrets. When we first moved here I asked different people about good places to eat and Granny Cantrells would always come up in the conversation.
