After seeing the Gathering Table's commercials on local television, my companion and I decided to drive down from 40 miles away and try it out. We were both so glad we did. We ate lunch there on a Sunday afternoon. It was crowded but the...More

From the time we walked into the door until we left with to-go teas, our experience was excellent! Our server and hostess were wonderful as well as the food! Don't miss the fried chicken and peach cobbler! ❤️Price was great!

It's no wonder that The Gathering Table is a local favorite. The food on the buffet is like what your grandma used to cook; good country-style vegetables, fried chicken, pulled pork, and simple-but-satisfying desserts. I especially enjoyed the pulled pork; it's cooked and seasoned just...More

Heard great things about the Buffet. It was ok, fried food was a bit greasy but the peach cobbler was good. Although, didn't look at the menu so that might be better.

I don't think they have children's discounts but they do have a children's menu to choose from. They do have senior discounts and the prices are pretty reasonable anyway. Typical sandwich is around $7.50.
