Haven't been here in quite some time. My wife & I went back hoping they would have wings. While there were no wings, the sausage made up for it.

I got steak and gravy. It was nasty. The gravy was liver gravy. They did have beef liver and gravy but the problem was using the same gravy to cook steak. Okra was burnt. boiled potatoes were boiled turnips (nothing labeled).

This is an all-you-can-eat buffet featuring Deep South Southern style cooking (low country style). As an example, the vegetables are either raw (on the salad bar) or very well cooked. There's very little in between. Thus, not every offering will appeal to every person (one can get into arguments over the proper way to fix corn or green beans, for... More
