Saw the reviews and decided to give it a try while traveling. It’s a family owned local restaurant and it was a nice meal with friendly service. We had a smokehouse sampler and it was good smoked flavor with ribs pulled and chicken. The green...beans and slaw were tasty as well. Overall a nice meal and family atmosphere. Banana pudding looked good but we decided no sweets tonight.More

Found this place with good reviews on Trip Advisor. The reviews were right. Good Food. We had a brisket sandwich and a pulled pork sandwich. I’ve never seen them served the way they do them. The meat comes in a bowl with a buttered bun...and your side. Plenty of food, and very tasty! Sweet tea is like grandma used to make! Servers were helpful and friendly.More

Great food - they had a lunch buffet & also great plated specials. We were stuffed with great home cooking & spent only a little more than fast food.

Fried catfish filets done to perfection. More than I could eat. Great hushpuppies, good potato salad and baked beans. Wife liked her coleslaw and fried okra (also more than she could finish. When we find ourselves in Chipley at dinnertime, this is where we will...eat.More

We didn't have the BBQ, but ordered shrimp, which was pretty good. Fried pickles also ok. Tasted like the typical frozen food fare. The decor was like a hunting lodge with buck and bear heads on the walls. Interesting that the menu had a dish...titled the "Bambi"...and it was chicken with cheese on top...Huh??? Someone doesn't know Bambi was a deer? I would have tried it had it been venison. Ok fare, but didn't go back and it won't be a stop on my next visit to Chipley!More

Great food. Wife has the buffet and the country fried steak was great. I had a hamburger steak which was also good. Good portions and great service. This is a good comfort food restaurant. Will definitely return when we are in town.

We were traveling through the area, the parking area packed. We thought that’s the place to stop. We enjoyed fried catfish, delicious, and variety of sides. If you like home style cooking, friendly staff and reasonable prices...this is your place.

My Lady Daphny and I B-man routinely eat here 1-2 times a week , sometimes we call ahead & order :since pandemic ;Fish , porkchops , chicken tenders & country fried steak all have been good-great sides to ,has real country cooking taste-(personal favorite is...sweetpotato fries) waitresses are always pleasant & nice & attentive the floors are always clean.. I know if you give them a little leadway or make a request for buffet they normally will put that item on buffet ..any *good food has a wait time but I can assure you its well worth the wait (it doesnt take to long though) I honestly was worried when the pandemic struck , & I will do my part as a loyal customer to see this American grassroots local business stays afloat (guy/ladies dont forget to tip your waitresses *something matters) ..

Parking lot was full with pick up trucks, and inside I wouldn't pick a fight....some full size dudes eat here. Place was pretty full, but waitress gave me a table for 4 (I was alone) and quickly brought my tea. Ordered the pulled pork sandwich...and had cole slaw as a side (lots of sides available to choose from). The sandwich bread was a small bun, but the pork was overflowing in a good sized saucer....certainly more than the bun would hold. Was very good as was the cole slaw. Fine place...good service, good food. happy trailsMore

I have passed this place before, was on the way out of town and was looking for a place with seafood. We decided to stop in. Friendly staff unfortunately we came near the end of their lunch buffet. Too small of an area for a...buffet small selection of items. We are considering stopping ing during non buffet timeframe.More

We needed a quick lunch spot on our drive home from the beach. The food was excellent! We all had the buffet. The baked chicken was juicy, the chicken fried steak crispy and well seasoned, and honey mashed potatoes. Def will go again.

I didn't feel like BBQ but we didn't have much choice if we also wanted to have a beer with dinner. Chipley is in a dry county apparently. The salad bar was very good. The BBQ was very good. Everything was good including the service....I would definitely go back.More
