This restaurant was quaint, and overall had an acceptable selection of food. Props to the staff for keeping the buffet clean overall, as it is self-serve. Food choice selection was sub-par, with two or three vegetables, pudding, and two or three meat options in addition to a salad bar. The price seemed like a bit of a gouge considering the... More

We ate here twice because we were traveling with our two young children. It seemed to be the best place to get food quickly (being a buffet style) and not be typical fast food. Our first experience was dinner - it was VERY good southern food. The next day we had breakfast and that was not as good as the... More

I FINALLY had a chance to eat here, which I have been wanting to do for a very long time, and I am so glad I did. We walked in and immediately felt a very homey feeling. The atmosphere was fantastic. The breakfast buffet was incredible, always having full hot trays on it. There was a very good variety of... More

Everything my hubby and I had was so fresh, tasty and delicious. Our server was friendly and accomodating. We are so delighted we discovered this gem and will definitely come back anytime we return to the area in the future. Our only regret is we did not discover it sooner.

Just as good as the Casino buffet. IMAO. Not as fancy or as much selection. But for quick in/out Meat and potatoes should be worth your time.. If you want Drink... More

Granny's restaurant serves a delicious buffet. The spread was perfect. Home cooking. Great buffet style service and exactly what you should expect. Didn't have any of the chain buffet fill to it either. It was a very busy night, but the service was still fast and professional. Another good find in Cherokee.

I was less than impressed last June when my wife and I ate here for the first time. I decided to try it again earlier this month for dinner and found it to be very good! In fact, I came back here after a disappointing experience at another restaurant and I'm glad I did. The buffet was excellent. The fare... More
