The service is always great and the food is southern style. I can say this is a great restaurant. The fireplace is also a treat. I can't wait to return to Hidden Waters.

The place was packed for the $6.99 Senior Buffett. The food was country cooking and everything tasted great and bountiful. Our server, Hannah worked like crazy to keep the drinks filled and the table clean. She is a great employee.
