One of the best places to eat any time they are open. Lunch is great, but the steak on Friday and Saturday are outstanding. You won't beat the quality of the steak at their prices any where in Hattiesburg.

I came here for lunch on a Friday and it was busy. I got a table immediately. The waitress quickly took my drink order. I wanted lots of veggies and baked or grilled chicken. They had plenty of each. It all was very good. I love the vintage decor all over the walls.

A wonderful home cooked buffet in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Fast, friendly service. Delicious food with a large variety. Seafood and ribeye steaks on Friday and Saturday night. All for a very reasonable price.

A classic southern buffet. Just about everything you would want to eat is available. Definitly not diet friendly, but very good food. The fried chicken is awesome and the banana pudding is a real treat. Go and experience, you will enjoy.

My only experience has been the lunch buffet during week days, and I've been quite a few times because my dad loves this place. It is always packed full of lunch diners, and staffed accordingly, so service has never been an issue, and the buffet is kept well stocked. They have a huge, open dining area, noisy and full of...
