While traveling I-95, decided to give Pizza Bella a try. When I pulled in the parking lot, I found that it was full of cars/trucks for the local fire department. The firemen/ladies I know will only eat at places that are good. I figured why not take a look. Since it was Friday, the hot buffet had fish and the... More

My teens each had a personal size pizza and said it was good. My wife had a club sandwich and I had the meatball sub - both were good, not great. The service was just average, got the orders right, but generally inattentive to things like drink refills, checking us out promptly when we finished, etc.

The buffet seems to be the highlight of the restaurant, which is almost a shame. The menu food has always been very good for my wife and I, while we have found the buffet to be rather cheap and generic (the common standard for buffet food, lets be honest). My last visit I had a very good experience from our... More

We kept the business card and will make it a regular stop on the way down to Florida. You don't really need service with a buffet. The mash potatoes were real and the fried Chicken are in themselves a reason to stop.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend. We went on a Wednesday when they offer the Japanese buffet. Pizza had a weird flavor. You could taste some type of chemical on it. The supposed to be Japanese food was not even close to the flavor you expect from this type of food. It tasted fake. My family and I would... More

One waitress working the entire restaurant AND taking phone orders. Seated ourselves, no order taken after 15 min. Soooo.... Not sure how the food is, we left!

My family has been coming here for the past 2-3 years when we visit the area to hunt. The buffet is good and has a decent variety of food. Staff is always friendly. No complaints!

We had the buffet for 7.99. The food was great. They have pizza and a salad bar all week (not open on Sunday) and a hot bar that changes each day. The soft serve was awesome.

I have eaten at many nice, luxury restaurants that have got such an incredible service, in many countries around the world. I have never got such a horrible experience anywhere else except at this 'Pizza Bella' restaurant in Ridgeland, South Carolina! It is the only buffet restaurant in the world that the waitresses do not allow us to get any... More

Waitress that waited on me is also in my mugshot magazine! I would think they would do background checks...
