“Must be good, the locals eat here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Have driven past this place many times, so we decided to stop for breakfast. Friendly greeting. Food arrived quickly and hot. Some of the creamiest grits I've ever eaten. Great value for the quality of food.

“Mama watching you”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I ate lunch here and order the buff it was good and priced fare the only part i didn't like was the buff line server she wouldn't let you server your self she placed all the fixing on your dish, I felt like she was standing guard limiting you. service was ok all you can eat but you have to get pass the guard dog

“Breakfast...and more breakfast.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

I've had the weekend breakfast buffet at Mama Jean's once on almost every beach trip for the last 6-8 years. It's a cardiologist's nightmare... bacon, eggs, ham, country ham, patty sausage, sausage gravy, link sausage, corned beef hash, grits, cheese grits, biscuits, toast, waffles, pancakes, butter, syrup...all you can eat. Oh, yeah... there's some fruit and cereal but not many people eat it.

“Great buffet on Sat/Sunday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Breakfast buffet has lots of options and reasonably priced. Only downside is they take up the buffet at 10:30. Which is really late but it would be nice if they kept it till 11. oh well you are at the beach. get there mid early and get a good breakfast.

Good home cooking - good breakfast and lunch buffet on Saturdays and Sundays. One of our favorite places to go after church on Sunday.
