“Despite the hype, this place is a miss.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2010

Several people told me about General McArthur's. Supposed to be good, however the food is bland. Standard buffet fare. The mac n cheese was tasteless. The bbq average at best. The vegetables bland. The desserts were decent, but nothing to wite home about.

I'd miss this one and head over to Mac's. Much better.

“A lot like an Old Country Buffet with less choices”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2009

This place was reccomended to me by a local, so I took the drive out to check it out. The food was OK, but pretty boring. Catfish, Spaghetti, BBQ pork, Mac & Cheese, and the like. None of the food was exceptional, but the service was wonderful. The place is down home & friendly, but the food is boring Buffet with an iced tea was $14.
