Perfect fried chicken, crispy, light, non-greasy with just the right amount of seasoning accompanied by field peas, corn bread, turnip greens, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole and swamp gravy on buttered rice. Sliced pork loin, baked chicken and ham topped with pineapple rings circling cherries looked appealing, too. Oh, my goodness, what a feast! And I haven't even raved about the blackberry and peach cobblers with Blue Bell Vanilla Ice Cream. The meal my friends and I had today would've made my Mamaw (grandmother) proud. The staff was efficient, friendly and quick with bringing tea, sweet and unsweetened, and real Coca Colas. Buffet service worked well for the food with table service for beverages. There's also a salad bar buffet, though I didn't bother with those light weight calories.
The large dining rooms were comfortable and not loud, even though there was a very large crowd of folks eating and waiting to eat. We traveled to Colquitt to attend the 2 PM performance of Swamp Gravy, a Georgia folk play. It was delightful. And even though our stomachs were full, the play kept us engaged and entertained with fine singing and storytelling by the all volunteer cast of many local children and adults. Bravo! For the meal and entertainment.
