I stopped in for the lunch (midweek). I always enjoy the buffet, all you care to eat, and some variety from day-to-day. The food is southern style (meaning there is a lot of fried food). Those not wanting the buffet can order from the menu....More

This is a fine country style buffet in downtown Folkston. I believe they’ll also prepare meals to order, but the buffet has been fresh and hot and has had a variety of items each of the times I’ve gone. It’s kind of like Sunday dinner...More

We were raised on Southern foods as they had here, so was excited to try. The staff is friendly & very helpful. We tried a lot of the items but not many were that great. Meatloaf & Fried fish filets were great. Turnip Greens were...More

We came here for dinner when staying nearby and we’re disappointed. The buffet was poor - seemed like it had been left out since lunch (when most of the reviews seem much better) and there was a distinct lack of vegetables. The steak special was...More

The service was very good. We enjoyed the salad bar but opted to order from the menu rather than eat from the buffet. The steak special was just ok. They are grilled outside which smells great but the meat quality was about what one would...More

The lunch crowd was light because we were early for lunch, but the waitress and cook were friendly - and the food was AWESOME! We chose the buffet - and sampled delightful pork BBQ - and went back for seconds! The Okra was great, as...More

Stopped in on a whim while passing through to the Okefenokee Swamp. They had a lunch buffet at the time of my visit. Seated immediately - and when you're there, I guess they assume everyone 'knows the drill' because no one ever came back with...More
