“Dinner Buffet $25, $30 with Crab Legs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

Didn't eat the crab legs, but they looked small. I usually like crab, but these looked like a lot of work for a little crab. Having said that, watching the folks that went for them was like watching a flock of seagulls going after a bit of bread.

Our server was fantastic. I had the buffet and my wife ordered from the menu. The buffet was small, but had pretty good variety. The steamed shrimp were flavored well and the blackened fish was great. The best part for me was the fried shrimp. I didn't have to paw through a bunch of breading to find the shrimp.

We were there around 5:00PM and were seated immediately. When we left there were folks waiting for a table. I would be a little hesitant going there if it was crowded and I had mobility issues.

“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

As a restaurant owner it is difficult to not criticize other establishment's mistakes. My family was so impressed with this small, comfortable atmosphere. Food was great! Service was even better!!

“Breakfast Buffett”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

This is a little café that doesn't seat many but it was awesome. The best biscuits I have had in a long time. The buffet has everything you could want. The service is awesome. Get there early because you will have to wait it you don't. It's a little crowded inside but I felt it was worth it. The prices are very reasonable since kids under 3 eat for free. LOVED our server.

“Shoney's without the Big Boy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

Our experience has been mainly with events catered by Hazel's. The food isn't bad, but nothing is outstanding or especially seasoned, just average, tending to greasy. Haven't been there for breakfast, and ate there too many years ago to comment now.
