I hate to give a bad review of any place and it is possible that the place has changed since we went. That being said we have eaten there several times, each time hoping things would be different but after this last time we will not be back again. I think the place was being renovated at the time we... More

We stopped in around 4:00 p.m. They have buffets but we decided to order from the menu. With the ribeye steak, you get unlimited salad bar so we did that. Clean salad bar area. Fresh. Steak was very good, too. Their dinner buffet does offer steak but it is the sirloin only.

I normally do not eat boiled shrimp because of lack of seasoning. McLain has the best shrimp I've eaten and the service is great. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. Great place to eat.

Met with friends in the area for breakfast. The buffet will definitely satisfy everyone's taste. Eggs, omelets, bacon, ham, sausage, pork chops, potatoes, pancakes, french toast, biscuits, gravy, fruit, and more! No one should ever go away hungry!

It was late, we were hungry after traveling for 10 hours. My southern hubby loved the food....lots of fried stuff, lots of carbs. Nothing appealed to me so I had the salad bar. Everything seemed pretty fresh and it had a nice assortment of dressings, but none of them were labeled, so I looked for the olive oil & vinegar.... More

Looked at the menu to start however went to the buffet... More

Stopped by on return trip from fishing in Destin with my son. Had heard lots of good things about this restaurant. Got there in time for the buffet. Food was okay just not very fresh. Thought it was a little pricey for the quality. Will give them another try.
