The staff at this restaurant was very friendly. We went for dinner, all of the food was delicious and tasted homemade. The buffet was a little small but it had everything that you need. Not crowded which was a plus.

My wife & I are both 70 and we told the cashier but she still did not disc. the price and when I mentioned it, she THREW a dollar bill on the counter & did not say she was sorry. We should have walked out then but gave it a shot. That was our 1st time there on a recommendation... More

I have a cabin in the Blue Ridge area and one of the locals told me this place is where many locals go to eat, so we tried it out. Buffet style, but they have a menu as well. We had the buffet for lunch. Unlike many of the small buffet restaurants in the Atlanta area, this one is actually... More

Arrived after noon rush. Buffet needed attention. No clean tables. Food tasteless except chicken. Give this place a pass.

We went on Sunday evening. It was not crowded. It is buffet. The food was fresh and hot. The fried chicken is just like Grandma's. The ham and beans was also very good. The price was fair. The employees are very nice.

Buffet style. For such a short food bar, they pack in a bunch. Comfort food well made. Upper end of good. Had breakfast bar the next day. Excellent selections and good quality. Appears to be frequented by locals, always a good sign. The lady keeping the dining room was a hoot!

We stopped in this local place because we were starving and it was the first thing we saw. It's an older restaurant, and the décor is dark and dated. For a clean-freak and picky restaurant-goer, I was skeptical, but decided to not complain. The staff was so friendly and helpful and the food was so great, that I'm glad we... More

I was with a church group, and while we were there two more large groups came in and no one had to wait very long. The food was very, very good. All you could eat. They bring extra homemade pies around while you are eating.

This is a favorite of ours when the crowd is really hungry. The service is always very friendly, as are the patrons, who appear to be very regular. It is solid, buffet style, country cooking, with good fried chicken, pot roast, mashed potatoes and veggies. The salad bar is nothing spectacular but the soups make up for it, as they... More

The village is a place like all old places used to be before fast food invaded the world. This is not the place those of you that want to convince yourselves that you are eating healthy, should even walk in the door. They have a great breakfast buffet plus a menu to order from. Good biscuits at the drive-thru and... More
