One of our party ordered a hamburger. Took forever and it was drowned in mayo. Yuck! He could barely eat it. The buffet is not that great. It is small and not fresh. I have eaten here several times and I will not be back. The service is slow and the servers disappear. This place is not worth the money you pay. The food needs an overhaul for sure.

We ate here for dinner during our long road trip home to Ohio. Everyone in the party had the buffet. I found all the food to be prepared fresh, no issues with cleanliness. The fried chicken was good, the catfish, not so much. Our waitress was friendly and kept our drinks filled. My husband, dad and kids LOVED the peach cobbler; said it taste homemade. Since there are not a lot of dining options in Forrest City, I would take this over fast food any day. Reasonable prices as well!

The buffet was cold the food was water logged. $70 bucks later we were sick to our stomachs. Then they took so long to bring my daughters grilled cheese we didn't take it. We stopped at Kfc and got ger something. We all should have eaten at kfc

Wasn't a bad place for lunch, but they didn't seem to keep the food full on the buffet. The waitress was wonderful!

Went here with family and was excited about potential. It might be buffet is not our thing but food was cold and greasy.
