Ours was a breakfast visit and we found the staff pleasant and friendly providing an efficient service. The eating was buffet style with plenty of items for those of a sweet tooth, but a limited selection, compared with other nearby similar eateries. The food was refreshed frequently as the place was quite busy

Food is excellent, true southern cooking. It is a little expensive since it's a buffet, with a drink you'll spend about $15 per person. My only complaint is the last few times we've eaten there, I really don't even eat that much and I get full real quick and I've had a stomach issue each time for a few hours... More

If you are hungry this is the place to go. It is nothing fancy but similar to other buffets like Golden Corral.

Live their fresh vegetables on the buffet. This place prides themselves with fresh veggies and fried chicken along with many other entrees. The waitress was attentive and the place is very clean. Will definitely go there again.

It was most definitely overpriced for what it was. Nothing spectacular and the desserts were really not great.. I will... More

Dropped in for dinner, big mistake. Their variety of foods is impressive for their location; however, the flavors, heat/coldness, taste, and tenderness leaves a great deal to be considered. My son spit out his chicken and creamed corn saying both had a terrible flavor to them; my fried fish was just OK, the mashed potatoes were cold, the bread pudding... More

Tuesday is the day I Go for the liver and onions! The normal buffet is rather good also. The time of day that I go, the food is fresh and very tasty. If you go before 530 your beverage is included with your meal.
