I really love a good southern food restaurant and this is exactly what I wanted. I'm on a low carb diet and there's was no shortage of things I could have. I loved everything I had on my plate. The staff treated me like I've known them for years. The added surprise was the cherry flavored kook-aid. What a nice... More

The food, which was heavy on fried, was very good. They had good sides and dessert tables. Service was very good. The floor was very very dirty while the restrooms were clean.

We asked the hotel attendant to recommend a barbecue place where the locals attend and it did not disappoint. The food was good and the service was excellent.

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.
