The food was really good for all of us the pain for all 5 of us almost broke the bank. I would probably go back if it were just me but with the family I would not it's way too expensive.

The Very Best Home Cooking Anywhere ! Great location plenty of parking. This place stays full all the time. Christian oriented and prayer board at the beginning of the line. Homemade breads and dessert. Open breakfast, lunch until 2 closes then reopens at 5 for Dinner. You won't be disappointed !

We were looking for a low-key, family-style restaurant in the Gainesville area. Grandparents on both sides of the family were attending. The variety of items on the serving line are great. Everyone got a little something different, but each with a homestyle flavor. The folks who eat here for lunch during the week are a lot of local people. So,... More

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, it is all delicious!! They have a salad bar, soups, desserts, southern homestyle cooking, with a wide variety of options. It can get a little pricey but you get what you pay for and it is worth ever penny.

We have enjoyed longstreet for many.... many years... expecially breakfast and their Chicken tenders... but it seems like it's kinda slipping some... the quality is just a bit lacking from what it has been in years past and it seems like it's just on the "just do enough to keep them from complaining train" They used to go above and...

Only place in town can convince our kids to eat vegetables. Traditional buffet line, where you pick your meat and veggies.

We eat here a lot but don't think it is as good as the prices most of the time! You can get the exact same meal and each time it will be a different price. Sometimes if you question them, they will admit that they overcharged for a vegetable, etc. I got bacon one day and it was broken up... More

Worth a trip for the home cooking! Homemade banana pudding was the bomb! Lots to choose from and you really want to try every thing on the buffet! Not all you can eat though!

Thank youbutt
