This is a great country buffet. Everything was well cooked and seasoned. There was a large variety of veggies and meats. They also have other items you can order from the back and no additional charge. The tea was also great. Not recommended if you are on a diet! The place is unassuming, but not the dump others have said.... More

The BBQ is great - among the best "Carolina style" you will ever eat. The catfish is great. The Brunswick stew is great. You will definitely find something here that you like. The service was very friendly. It is a comfortable place. It's an old building, but don't let that deceive you into missing this.

Casey's could use a makeover...it's pretty divey but the owner and her staff are terrific. Super friendly. The food is pretty good too. Love the Mac and cheese, fried chicken and the fried fish.

Great food, super service. This place looks rundown, but it is clean and the variety of food is amazing. If someone wants to sample REAL southern food, then this is the place. Very reasonable prices, about $8 each day. Owners are on hand to make sure your get great service.

Awesome buffet and good old fashioned southern style. The staff is super friendly and they treat you like family. The facilities will not impress but the quality of the food will make you want to return. They is good cross-section of locals there and it feels like when I was a kid growing up in the south.

Had a wonderful dinner at Casey's Buffet. My favorites include the very tasty and wonderful marshmallow sweet potatoes, crunchy fried chicken and awesome okra. We had a wonderful server who kept our drinks tapped off and removed the dishes quickly as we finished our meals. To end the meal, I enjoyed delicious banana pudding. Reasonably priced. Great choice for dinner... More

We walked in and were immediately greeted and seated. The food was the BEST southern cooking I've ever had! I ate so much that I never made it to the desserts. I wish there was a Casey's everywhere!!!

Usually buffets depress me (even if the food is good). A trip to Casey's is life-affirming -- one of the best parts of my annual Wrightsville beach vaca. Sundays are the best -- crowded but so worth it. My husband -- a southerner -- goes for the bbq, fried chicken, fried shrimp, Brunswick stew, and whatever part of the pig... More
