“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

This restaurant is amazing. Don't exactly know the nutriental facts but if there is one day/ place to slip off your diet then this is the place to do so. I would call ahead of time to see how long the line is. We waited 50 or so minutes in line but it was WELL WORTH IT!

“ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Went to Lunch there. Service was Poor. Food selections were typical high calorie, tasteless food.Selections were not kept full. Service areas were sloppy. Would never go back!
Normally I like buffets but this was one of the worst I have been to.
Used comp points wish I didn't. They do not exchange $ for $ either !!

“lunch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We finally after 3 trips to Savanah we made it to Lady and Sons.For lunch after just being told it was good.Well it turned out not to be really not so special at all.The fried chicken greasy and dry the mashed potatoes tasted like instant but the sides were really good.Mac and cheese was dry and no taste.Bartender could have a little more experiance with just local rum drinks that other places have already.

“Southern cooking destroyed by the AYCE buffet”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Spent two days on business at Harrah's Tunica, MS. Had lunch and dinner at Paula Dean's Buffet. Big selection, some good recipes, service OK. Price is around $15 PP +Tip.

As with all buffets, this one suffered from stale batches of lukewarm food left to wait for an empty plates and hungry patrons. Fried chicken at lunch was very good yet the next day at dinner the same fried chicken was greasy and awful.I can't say I enjoyed anything at either sitting but my wife raved about the Mac and Cheese.

I have yet to find a buffet I like. The very nature of this type of restaurant precludes fine food and targets the crowd that demands quantity over quality.

Paula, you should be ashamed of yourself.

Please avoid at all costs.
