Just had breakfast but everything tasted good, came out hot and service was good. Very good prices. They have a large buffet every lunch and the food looked good, but was that hungry to try.

Stopped in for lunch . Great value. I had the 1 meat 3 sides deal. Meatloaf was yummy. The mash potatoes, squash and coleslaw were also good. Would definitely go back. Fresh homemade food.

A little bit out of the way but not far from North Myrtle Beach. Good home cooking! Nothing fancy about this place, but the food is always good. And generous portions will fill you up. Weekends include an all you can eat bar at a reasonably price. Service is always great too. My favorite breakfast place at the beach!

We stopped at Mama Jean's, located just outside the North Myrtle Beach/Cherry Grove end of town, for the breakfast buffet. Heard a lot of good things about it, so this is from a first time visitor.

We were there a few times and it was never crowded, which for us is a good thing. Food was just okay for home cooking. Service was okay too, nothing special.
