“Sorry, this is a No”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Said to be one of the better places to eat in Walterboro, we wouldn't bother, and wouldn't go back. Duke's Barbeque a little farther down the road is better. Here the staff is friendly and the decor is standard roadside eatery, but the food is mediocre at best. We had "smothered chicken breast" that came looking like it had been smothered in a slab of mozarella a while ago, and fried oysters that even the puppies were hesitant to chow down on when we doggie-bagged a few leftovers. The salad bar is tired, the "desserts" are yesterday's Betty Crocker. It isn't really bad, but it isn't appetizing either.

“Better than fast food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

This was another one of our road trip pit stops. I was craving some fried chicken and they had it on their buffet. The chicken was good, the salads were fresh, the mashed potatoes are boxed, and the desserts were just not good at all. Oh, except for the bread pudding, that wasn't bad.

The price for the buffet is reasonable and includes coffee and tea. Our server was efficient just not what I would call friendly. There appeared to be a lot of regulars, so they don't only cater to those of us just driving by. I would choose this place over fast food... as long as they have fried chicken.

“Good food, friendly people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

Right off the highway with plenty of parking! Friendly greeting right when we walked in the door. Our food was great- onion petals, BLT, and hamburger. We had some slow service once we got our food with no refills on our drinks. But - the bathrooms are clean! Will come by again...

“Low Country Salmon?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

My wife and I stopped in for dinner on our way back home. We wanted a local place instead of a chain. The place was crowded (good sign) and clean. They had a typical Southern buffet with fried shrimp and chicken, veggies cooked with ham, and some good carbs (potatoes, rice, grits,etc.). The food looked good and others said it was. We decided to order off the menu just so we wouldn't eat so much. I ordered "Sesame Encrusted Salmon" and my wife ordered the grilled chicken dinner. Her meal was fine with large portions. Mine was spectacular!. I have never had a better piece of salmon. It was mild, cooked to perfection, and seasoned perfectly. It was one of those meals where you made sure to eat very slowly just to enjoy it longer. My wife tasted it and she also loved it. The crust on the fish was cooked just right. The grilled veggies and sauce were a great match to the salmon. I had enough left for lunch the next day. The price was excellent especially when the food was much better than Bonefish or any upper scale chain I have been to. We were very surprised to get a great piece of salmon at a local "Low Country" restaurant. We will try them again.
