Okay, passing through from Central Florida and I’m a proud Florida Cracker that is pretty good at BBQ myself. I’ve had some awesome food here in Beaufort but this isn’t it. Friendly staff, good price for a buffet...but that’s about it. I didn’t try any...More

We've eaten here a lot and it's ALWAYS great. I really like the fish they added to the buffet. If you don't leave here full it's your own fault!!

I have eaten there many times. It has always been excellent. I particularly like the way they prepare their vegetables. There is always a large variety of them.

In addition to salads their chicken livers, fried okra, cooked vegetables, and rice are nondairy. And they are nice and patient answering allergy questions. They make the food here so they know the ingredients. A very happy experience!

Great variety, down home taste, reasonably priced and great staff. If you want comfort food at a good price this is the place. When we have out of town visitors who want southern bar b q this is the place no hesitation!

The place the locals go. My husband loves the fried chicken and banana pudding particularly. I make sure to get the cstfish and coleslaw. We both always get the pork barbeque, hush puppies, and mini corn fritters. Can not beat this family run buffet.

We were so looking forward to eating BBQ here as we’d been disappointed at Q’s on Bay and had read great reviews. We planned our visit around it and came with huge appetites. Alas, we found the vegetables woefully over cooked and the meat dry...More

We received those awards from organizations that is all they do is judge BBQ. Professionals in the BBQ realm. Fortunately for me over a thousand people that dine with me week and week out don't share your opinion. Several people ever week tell us it...More
