We visited last weekend right at 1100am and had to wait for turnover of line to lunch items. Returned today for breakfast, glad we did. You are charged per item so load up. The biscuits are the star of the show at breakfast.

The selection of this buffet is awesome; the food is delicious, and very Southern, yum! I highly recommend the Routissere Chicken, Brunswick Stew, and the Strawberry Cobbler! It felt slightly high priced, but not bad. I will definitely come back!
