They have a huge buffet for lunch. Several main dishes to chose from with several vegetables choices. There are usually 3-4 dessert items and ice cream. Very clean, great atmosphere and excellent country food with down south hospitality. This is a must stop restaurant if you are anywhere close by. You will want to revisit once you have tried it.

It was my first visit. Not enough of a selection on the buffet. The chicken was salty. The food was old and greasy. Will not return.

Went to try movie star seafood buffet. Had fried fish, chicken, brisket assorted vegetables. Seafood included boiled fried shrimp, stuffed crabs and fried oysters.

One of the best places to eat any time they are open. Lunch is great, but the steak on Friday and Saturday are outstanding. You won't beat the quality of the steak at their prices any where in Hattiesburg.

Based off of family recipes, the food is great Southern comfort food--fried or grilled chicken, meatloaf, beans, grits, and on an on. If you can't find something good to eat, you've come to the wrong place. Down home food, friendly service, and great desserts, too...

I came here for lunch on a Friday and it was busy. I got a table immediately. The waitress quickly took my drink order. I wanted lots of veggies and baked or grilled chicken. They had plenty of each. It all was very good. I love the vintage decor all over the walls.

A wonderful home cooked buffet in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Fast, friendly service. Delicious food with a large variety. Seafood and ribeye steaks on Friday and Saturday night. All for a very reasonable price.
