Just like home cooking with a great atmosphere. The food very fresh. Friendly Staff.
Save room for dessert or take a piece home.

I don't like to write negative reviews, but this was our worst dining experience in Florida, and worth noting. We walked in due to its proximity to a university we were visiting, and regretted it. This may be a favorite of locals but it is not the place to go if you are visiting. Our waitress offered a variety of buffet options: you can have salad but not soup, you can have meat but only one serving, and no dessert or soup...by the time we heard all of the "can't haves" in a buffet offering, we were ready to walk out the door! Of course, you can have everything offered, but the price goes up with each addition. Our son ordered the one meat option and could not have soup. My husband and I took the salad and soup selection, and could not have meat. The soup was good but the salad offerings on the buffet were less than average. When we visit our son on campus in the future, we will drive to a nicer restaurant because this one is not worth the walk across the street.

whether you choose the perfectly seasoned veggies, the delicate fish or the perfectly done roast beef- you will have a wonderful meal in a well restored old building with character. Next time we will try the tasty looking desserts

When we travel we like to select & support the local entrepreneurs - and this was an excellent choice! It is a buffet & the food selection offered would fit anyone's diet (salad/entrees/dessert bars). It's an old southern Resturant that is clean, not crowded & only the waitress bothers you to refill your beverage. We didn't eat the desserts due to diets but they looked like they "popped" out of a Food Network's show. Was told by the waitress the lady in the back comes in each morning & bakes these gems. The cakes must have been at least 10 inches tall - unbelievable! Oh, and the meat selection for your entrees were ample: fish, turkey, roast, ham, etc. Highly recommend & would go back again.
