We were attending a marching band competition at E Jackson HS. I checked Trip Advisor the day before to find a restaurant for dinner. After reading the reviews, and not finding much close by, we decided to give The Redd House a try. Following others' advice, we arrived at 4:30 ... and just as reported, there was already a line formed outside. They opened at 5:00 and, when seated, our server was very friendly and gave us the run-down. There was a menu to order from also, but we were in the mood for the buffet. It was expansive! Ample salad bar with homemade dressings...fresh cooked veggies such as green beans, mac & cheese, potato casserole, corn on the cobb, baked beans, etc. Fried shrimp, fried catfish, baked/grilled fish, fried chicken tenders, shrimp & grits, shrimp fettucine alfredo, BBQ pork, and really good hushpuppies. Then the dessert bar with homemade strawberry shortcake, meringue puddings, etc. Everything seemed homemade and was delicious! Next time, though, I would go just after they open as there was no line, and no shortage of tables. But don't wait too late, as it did get full before we left. Overall, the food and service was very good.

My husband and I and another couple made the long trek to this restaurant on a Friday night. We were all experiencing low level panic as we were reaching the end of our google directions and there was no sign of anything commercial in sight. Then suddenly we saw the unobtrusive sign for the Redd House.

It was a little after 5:00 when we drove up the little gravel driveway to an almost full parking lot.

As soon as we walked through the door we found out they don't accept credit cards! Fortunately we happened to have cash. (They also accept checks.)

Our waitress was wonderful; friendly, informative and accommodating in every way. We don't care for fried food, but there were other options available. My husband I ordered grilled shrimp, which was fabulous, and our friends got pork ribs which they enjoyed.

It looked like half the city of Jefferson was there on a Friday night. This is an extremely popular place for good reason. If we were in the area again we would go back.

This place has a great buffet with fried shrimp, clams, catfish, boiled shrimp, vegetables, and a dessert bar. It's all you can eat. Go early because the line forms before they open and can get long.

We went on Friday night for their Seafood Buffet. The buffet featured catfish, shrimp, and baked tilipia. Scallops and crab legs are available for an additional fee. Various vegetables, salads and desserts were also available on the buffet. All of the seafood was wonderful as were the vegetables, salads and desserts. All seems made from scratch, not the pre-canned varieties. The banana pudding was delicious. The original owner said she made the biscuits from scratch for the buffets on Thurs. evenings and Sunday lunch. What a treat that must be. Service was excellent. Fresh tea is placed on your table in a pitcher for your refills.
A little hard to find, situated near the owner's homes, but a woonderful find. Will go back again to try their vegetable buffets. Cash ONLY! No credit cards accepted.

The staff treats you like family. The food is delicious classic Southern food Thursday and Sunday, and Friday snd Saturday are seafood nights. The fried green tomatoes on the buffett are the best.
