“Creatures of Walmart”
Reviewed June 2, 2012 via mobile

Weird place! Both staff and patrons! Buffet looked like a downmarket Golden Corral. My friend had a butterflied deep fried trout with a side of pinto beans. He has no fear, but will not eat trout for a while after this. The burger and the reuben were good and the service was quick. Probably wouldn't stop in again, but choices are scarce in this 50s time warp.
We should have done what we were tols at Tampoco Lodge: stop at Subway and take a sandwich for a picnic in a scenic spot...

“I'll take "Worst experience in Cherokee for $1000 Alex”
Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

What eatery has lousy food that takes forever to get served by an unkempt waitress with a bad attitude? That would be "The Little Princess". Correct!!

This place took forever. We almost left twice. I am usually patient but this was too much. It takes terrible service for me to leave a small tip and I left nothing on the table here. The only way this place stays in business is from the die hard buffet crowd.

Not worth a second look.

“Excellent Service”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

We stopped in because my husband loves buffets. The service was very prompt and attentive. The buffet has a good selection and taste like momma's home cooking.

“Never got a menu”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

We were visiting in the area and wanted to eat at a non-chain restaurant so we stopped here for lunch. The restaurant appeared to be completely under-staffed. The sign at front door says wait to be seated so we waited a couple minutes and the only worker we saw was busy checking customers out. That worker finally looked at us and directed us to a table nearby. Once seated a waitress finally appeared but was bringing in a new group of people to another table and passed us twice without acknowledgement. We left without ever seeing a menu.
