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

Good food, great service, one of Perry's prized places, only thing I wish is that pies were sold as wholes and the meats very good could be expanded out a little more like fish or mince pies

This restaurant is not open on weekends. However, that is the only thing wrong with it. It's comfortable, country, and the food is fabulous. Homemade pies, cakes, HUGE portions of meat, home cooked veggies. All at a reasonable price. I'm glad the hotel told me they had such great food, for I would not have stopped there otherwise, since it... More

My children and I got extremely sick after eating here. I contacted the restaurant and expressed what had happened, in hopes of something bad was used no one else would also get sick and I was told she had no idea how we could have gotten sick and that was about it. I believe this was a very unprofessional way... More

We visited for a Friday lunch and found the food to not be as appetizing as in the past. I tried their corned beef which I didn't like and thought the vegetable servings were smaller than before. The wife had a vegetable plate which she said was "OK". Our experience has been better in the past so we will probably... More
