Small inside, but the food that comes from their kitchens is Fantastic. Price is good. Eaten there many times & never been dissapointed. Not open on weekends, When 5 o'clock Friday comes, it starts filling up.

Any reviews not recommending this place are from people who do not like southern food served by incredibly nice people. My only complaint is that they are closed on Saturday. If you visit when they have carrots, trust me- TRY THEM!!! The peanut butter pie is to die for. I have not tried anything that is not great. Ham, roast... More

I have eaten there many times and the food is always good for a steam table menu. The pies are amazing and they have several different sugar free pies

If you want made from scratch, home cooking like a S&S Cafeteria style, look no further. Start your assembly line of good food and sit down and enjoy. I ate there three times and gorged myself on everything they had, including desserts

I thought it was very nice. The Hostess could not been more helpful. The restaurant was very clean and well lit. It is Cafeteria style dining, for those who have never been to a cafeteria you go down a line and choose from the food that you view and they put it in your plate. You pay at the end.... More

Went here while travelling on the recommendation of all the positive reviews. We're pretty disappointed with the experience. The cafeteria style food bar had several trays of shredded meat to pick from as your entree, and as we looked a worker was pouring what appeared to be gravy over all the shredded meats. I guess that was to moisten them,... More

Food was very good for a food service line type of buffett. Service was Excellent with attendants nearly falling over themselves to help you, my 88 year old aunt loved the attention. My only concern was pricing; with one pass thru the line our bill for two was nearly 28 dollars. For that amount at the franchise buffetts you go... More

The food was pretty good. Disappointed it was a Cafeteria style restaurant and not a buffet. Also, disappointed they did not have fried chicken. We had fried catfish and turkey. It is a little expensive for lunch (around $23.00 for two). Would eat there again if in the neighborhood. Very clean and service was great.

Myself and a coworker had lunch here. Walk thru the buffet line and the servers are very nice. Pick out a seat and there is a waitress making sure you have everything you need. I had baked chicken, green beans and creamed corn (delicious). The desserts looked amazing

I haven't eaten good southern food like I was used to in the Carolinas when I was a kid until today. The food was amazing and really brought me back to a great place. The country fried steak, mashed potatoes with gravy, creamed corn, and green beans were all great. The winner had to have been the savory steak with... More
