Everything I had on the hot buffet was great. When I first found this place on TripAdvisor, i was skeptical. The reviews sounded pretty good, but I didn't think a buffet would be this delicious. I went on a day that was kind of slow, so I expected the food wouldn't be hot and fresh, but it was. The service... More

Went inside expecting a lot but it was just ok. Had better southern buffet for lot less money. Food was eatible, Mac and cheese tasted like a boxed one. For $12 a person plus drink, I was not impressed. Will not be back anytime soon

Desk clerk recommended this restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised at the buffet. Choices of salads, meats, vegetables and desserts. Wait staff was very accommodating and checked on us regularly refilling tea and offering to get items. The food was delicious. We will dine there the next time we are in the area.

During a long road trip, one usually expects to eat fast food at travel plazas. Imagine our surprise to find a bona-fide home cooked feast just off the highway! It was in the nick of time, too, because we were really hungry after having skipped breakfast to get on the road faster. This place looks and smells like Grandma's house... More

Friendly folks and too bad the "vegan" in one of the reviews had to be the 1 negative. Apparently they need to go eat in the woods. For everyone else, I would recommend for the quality of the food and decent price. Hopefully they will find the need to expand to a little better location but as it stands now,... More

We have just relocated to Richmond Hill and we visited Southern Image on most of our trips. There is a smaller buffet but great options and very flavorful. The desert table is like at your granny's house!

Very restrictive for vegans as none of the selections on the buffet is labeled and although I asked a server, it clearly seemed like too much trouble, " Well you have to go over there and tell me which dihes you want. " She did not move, so it meant a trip to the buffet andcrepirt back to her. She... More

Have passed the Southern Image many times over the past few years but without stopping. What a shame since we found the food to be pretty good at a reasonable price. As with others we had the buffet which provides ample opportunity to try different Southern foods. The buffet is not "Golden Corral" broad but it offers something for everyone.... More

We weren't expecting too much just needed to eat. The buffet was great. There was something for w everyone. There was even a large dessert table. Several kinds of meats and amazing fried chicken. Very clean throughout. Staff was friendly.

Thank gridbut
