This buffet was overwhelmingly good! Growing up in a southern home, I am used to eating good southern cooking. There were neckbones, chicken and rice, cooked to perfection fried chicken, and so much more. My mother, who is a production chef at Georgia Southern was wowed and amazed. I would make the 3 hour trip back just to eat here!

This place is amazing. We stopped while traveling from Florida to Michigan. All delicious food! So much flavor in everything. This of not your normal buffet, this stuff taste homemade, not out of a box. My husband said their pecan pie was the best he's ever had! I'm sad we don't have one near us!

Lots of food 11.99 is a bargain. If you drive by without stopping. Might be a regret you'll learn about later. Just stop by

This resturant definitely hit the spot and had something for everyone. So many choices and the buffets were super clean. The salad bar had everything as well as the dessert bar! The waitress was attentive and cleaned plates quickly and I never ran out of tea. Did I mention the sweet tea is amazing too?? Love this place!

If you like heavy southern food, this is the place. The fried foods were fried perfectly. Mac & cheese is delicious. Desserts are good. Only cons are that vegetables are cooked so long in liquid that they are mushy. Steaks were also sitting in liquid, so they were disappointing. There were also a few flies around the buffet.

We visited this restaurant about 2 years ago coming back from a church group cruise. This time was a business trip that gave us the opportunity to be in the area to see if this restaurant was still as great as the first visit. Yes! This trip did not disappoint either. The food is great and the choices seem endless.... More

There was a line of about 20 people but we only waited about 10 minutes. I'm so glad we waited. From the fresh chili to the shrimp, mac & cheese. We barely had enough room for all their dessert options. Blueberry cheesecake was the winner though.
