We came late at night, an hour before closing, and were amazed at how large the place was. They have a huge buffet in this family style restaurant. Plenty of food and warm atmosphere. We were surprised that being the end of the day, there was so much food in the trays. Unfortunately, something didn't sit well that night but... More

We have been many times in the past few years, but have not been probably in about 3 to 4 months I would say. I don't know what has happened there but it is not the same as it previously was. The food was horrible. I would go just for the fried chicken however even the chicken was bad. Everything... More

Have eaten at their buffet many times. The salad bar is always fresh and a good selection. The hot bar food is hot and kept refilled, good variety. Staff are friendly and prompt, helpful. Good dessert bar also. Also a good selection on the menu.

Buffet was full selection, however the quality of food was terrible. Chicken breast and wing were raw (red). Other food was bland, no taste whatsoever. I would have to say about the worse meal I have ever had. I left and was still hungry because I could not eat anything else after that horrible chicken. And the price was outrageous.... More

My wife and I stopped here on Friday night. Buffet was good , not exceptional .Was worth the price. BBQ was really good. Seafood selection was weak. Maybe they should replace it with something else. Nice selection of salad items. Wait staff was friendly and kept up even when a large bus group arrived.

We called ahead because we had a large party and the table was ready when we arrived. We took 8 people in there and the food was awesome. My parents dont get around like they once did, but that wasnt a problem either! Rhe waiydess, Jennifer, was great and she loved hwr job!! The fried chicken was amazing.

Upon entering the restaurant, I immediately recognized the family atmosphere, and the friendly attitude of the staff. The hostess was friiendly, but apparently new, as she had to ask a few questions to find a guest up. I only had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. The buffet was filled with Southern style entrees: fried catfish, southern fried... More
