After the Granny's Kitchen fiasco the day before, I was a bit skittish about trying another family restaurant. We arrived a little late for breakfast and a touch early for lunch. The breakfast bar looked very tasty, but was being phased out in preparation for lunch, so we opted to wait.

In a nutshell, the service was nice, the Buffet was good, and the tea, coffee and cobbler were very good.

The buffet and salad bar isn’t much to get excited about. The food was pretty good. It’s really your basic home style restaurant.

We ate dinner around 6:30 and we had the buffet due to the variety of food and the price of the food. The salad bar was very limited and not fresh looking, most of the food on the hot bar was alright. The meatloaf and catfish were good and so was the mashed potatoes. My friends sweet tea tasted soured.

Open buffet option had nothing I was really interested in, too many fried items. Ordered off their menu which came with a trip to the salad bar which was average to poor. The grilled chicken was good though too much pepper, mashed potatoes ok, green beans inedible. Priced very inexpensively.
