My mom and I stopped here to eat as we arrived in town for a concert. It was very clean and the staff were very nice. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich which was very good. They had a selection of 7 different bbq sauces on the table! My problem was that I didn't care for any of them. I,... More

This place has the greatest food and environment. Who else has front porch swings available for seating! Loved it!

Always great service and food can't be beat. Try the beef brisket or the meatloaf both out of this world.

Pratts has been around for many many years. We typically go on Sunday after church, they have a Great buffet, huge selection and all of it delicious. BUT I'm partial to the brisket which is not on the buffet but WELL worth ordering off the menu.

This place is so cool. The staff were all so, so nice. Every single person we interacted with was as friendly as could be. They offer a veggie plate for those who don't eat meat. They had two of the coolest tables I've ever seen in a restaurant. They featured porch swings. The whole place was clean. The food was... More

Very happy with my visit to Pratts. Pork BBQ was excellent and loved all the sauces they put on the table. Service was great and drinks never got empty. The sides really weren't my thing, but luckily I had enough BBQ to fill me up.

We eat here regularly and enjoy it, especially the Sunday Buffet. This particular time we tried the Friday Night All you can eat Catfish. The fish was good but I must admit, I will not eat it again. They were honest in posting that it is imported catfish. When I inquired where it was imported from the waitress said she... More

I've been here twice. The first time I got the lunch buffet. It's small, maybe has like 20 items but for the price was a great value. It had some of the best BBQ chicken I've had in a very long time. And I think it was nice they provided buns if you wanted to make a sandwich. My last... More
