Our group had a breakfast meeting at Arden's today and we chose the buffet with our senior citizens discount. Our waitress and all restaurant staff we met were friendly and helpful. There were too many selections to try them all, but my favorites were: fried green tomatoes, fried fish filets and country fried steak.

If you're passing through Jacksonville, Florida and get a hankering for some southern cuisine set your GPS for Arden's Kafe where the decor and food is down home country and the hospitality is unmistakably Southern! The food is good and you get to eat as much as you want since its AYCE, however their hours of operation is limited: Mon-Fri... More

Open atmosphere eating, nice buffet setup, servers were nice and polite. If you want Grandma's cooking and don't want to cook it, best southern style buffet hands down. Different menu daily which makes it even better, everything is seasoned just right. Good deal for the dollar.

When you first walk in, you will see tables full of people eating, laughing, and sharing their days. The buffet is like combining all of Grannies meals in one room at one time. The food is wonderful, with real flavor, at a fraction of what it would cost to cook it at home. I love Ardens and if I don't... More

Arden's catered for our family reunion. The food was very good and the servers were professional. Arden's provided servers, dinner, drinks, dessert and utensils for a great price. The only complaint I have is with the desserts. They provided slices of cake but they were very thin to point they were falling apart. The cake slices would've been alot better... More

Love the southern variety spread. Vegetables and salt n pepper wings are my favorite. There is so much to choose from. They have different specials on different days. Yummy comfort food. Buffet all you can eat.

I am a particularly picky eater and I don't normally like buffets because the food is bland and/or cold. However, this place serves a great buffet. They have a seafood buffet on Fridays that has all the variety that you could possibly want! Check it out. It's really good! They also have a Saturday breakfast buffet that I would like... More

I read reviews for this buffet and thought it would be a great lunch. It was so disappointing. The vegetable soup was extra, extra salty and I could only take one taste. The creamed peas seemed like vanilla pudding with peas. I love okra and tomatoes but it was too sweet. The yellow squash was too salty as was the... More

This was our first time here (went on a recommendation from a co-worker)...we were pleasantly surprised. The Sunday buffet had all the good food you're used to...Fried chicken, fried pork chops, collard greens, mac and cheese, rice, black eye peas, cabbage and just a plethora of other food as well. Oh yeah...seafood salad was great...has so many shrimp in it... More
