Well, the reviews I read on a couple of sites were pretty accurate. Although quaint and picturesque, the food is average. And that's a shame being in the South. Some things were really good: vegetables, mac and cheese, sweet potatoes, and salmon. Others were bland...More

Come early and dig right in to the fried chicken and other meats, greens, taters etc. bring your appetite and enjoy. Yes the tables are too close together like in a southern kitchen but that is part of the ambiance. The staff is super friendly,...More

After years of reading how good this place was, we were close by and decided to check it out for ourselves. What a disappointment. First off, there were 2 girls decorating above the door and did not move even when 2 parties wanted to enter....More

This place was such a disappointment. When you come to Social Circle, GA, you expect to find reasonably priced food but no, here you find a buffet for $21.95/person. The food was something you would find at a truck stop. Pedestrian fried chicken, scary looking...More

This was our 2nd (and definitely NOT our last!) visit. The food is laid out in copious amounts and is seasoned the way my mother and grandmother used to do it. I won't start waxing eloquent about the desserts (except the peach cobbler - don't...More
