This is a fine country style buffet in downtown Folkston. I believe they’ll also prepare meals to order, but the buffet has been fresh and hot and has had a variety of items each of the times I’ve gone. It’s kind of like Sunday dinner...More

We were raised on Southern foods as they had here, so was excited to try. The staff is friendly & very helpful. We tried a lot of the items but not many were that great. Meatloaf & Fried fish filets were great. Turnip Greens were...More

Excellent service and sweet courteous staff, but truly bland and greasy food. I grew up in the south and ate this type of southern food everyday and I was looking forward to dinner there. I think the problem may be it had been out too...More

The service was very good. We enjoyed the salad bar but opted to order from the menu rather than eat from the buffet. The steak special was just ok. They are grilled outside which smells great but the meat quality was about what one would...More

The lunch crowd was light because we were early for lunch, but the waitress and cook were friendly - and the food was AWESOME! We chose the buffet - and sampled delightful pork BBQ - and went back for seconds! The Okra was great, as...More

Stopped in on a whim while passing through to the Okefenokee Swamp. They had a lunch buffet at the time of my visit. Seated immediately - and when you're there, I guess they assume everyone 'knows the drill' because no one ever came back with...More

We ate a couple of restaurants in town during our weekend visit. Okefenokee restaurant was tops. Only $10 per person including your drink and a well laid out buffet. Good local southern food. There’s only a few restaurants in the area and this one is...More
