I knew we were in for a good meal when we arrived and saw all of the locals enjoying their Sunday-after-church-meal. The Southern fried chicken is the best and all the staff are friendly. They have several buffet tables; hot sides like homemade mac&cheese, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn-on-the-cob, grits with shrimp and entrées like so. fried chicken, fried flounder,... More

Southern cooking at it's finest! Southern Image has great food. Anytime I have a hankering for southern food Southern Image hits the spot. I also recommend it anytime anyone is looking for southern food.

We stopped here on our way back from Florida to Augusta GA. It was great. Normally you don't get really great food on a buffet but this is one of those exceptions. I highly recommend it.

Great down-home food, great prices, clean and friendly environment! They'll make you feel like you're at home. They also do to-go plates.

Just happened to stumble into this restaurant for lunch. A lovely setting with white cloth tablecloths and real glassware! The buffet was presented in an attractive manner and all choices were delicious. All like home cooking and being at a good cook's home. Wish we were near enough to visit often.

Recently I was driving from Jacksonville to New York along 95, and I stopped to eat lunch at your restaurant. You guys had the best fried chicken I've ever had. Also your German chocolate cake was to die for! Such wonderful things and at such an unexpected spot....seemingly just some random place off the interstate, but you're a lot more... More

A huge disappointment, stayed the weekend and stopped there because it was close to the hotel. Should have gone further. All the had to offer was a buffet. Everything was overcooked. Most of the meats were dry and the Lima beans were cooked down so much they were like paste Total ticket was $28, way overpriced.

After a long day of travel we didn't want 'junk food' or fast food. Hoped the Southern Imagine would have real southern cooking. The fried chicken was perfection. The breast meat was juicy and so yummy. The baked chicken breast wasn't as good. Very dry and tasteless. Black eyed peas, fried green tomatoes, Mac and cheese and turnip greens were... More

We were told about this at our Mote, and it was a very good place to eat. We had the buffet and every thing was great. The best fried chicken, mac & cheese, pork chops bacon wrapped and all of the veggies were very good. The deserts were also very good. A really good restaurant for families ,couples or singles...
