The Sunday buffet is outstanding with all the comfort food you could imagine. Ham and beans, fried chicken, sausage and sauerkraut. The home made desserts are to die for. All reasonably priced with great service.

Aunt Maggies is a great find in Columbia, IL. I took two dozen folks there for the dinner buffet. We were considerably late arriving and our servers,etc. couldn't have been more understanding and accommodating. The food is wonderful. My favorites were the fried chicken, ribs...More

The restaurant is looking old and tired. The help is very friendly and the service is good..The food is just so so. We typically don't like buffets so we probably should have gone elsewhere.

Had a great time there with about 15 relatives (family reunion) about a year ago. The service was good and so was the food...and at a decent price. We'll be back.

Ordered off the menu and the food was just average...nothing to write home about. But the service we received was great. Treated us like we were family.
