I've been going to The Blue Willow from way back in the day and it has change a little. It's still good but way back it was cheaper and really really good. It's still good but the taste is not as good as b4. I would still recommend it for soul food but it's not the best soul food around.... More

Every item on the buffet was outstanding. This is a MUST VISIT place to eat. Outstanding service. Best fried chicken, Off the beaten path, but well worth the stop.

We had lunch here on our honeymoon, and we try to come back every few years to eat good Southern cooking. Our latest visit was good, as always. The biscuits, sweet potato souffle, and desserts are always perfect! The turkey and dressing were amazing. We love this place! It is pricey, but we don't come that often, so we find... More

This is by far the best southern food in Georgia. It is always worth the time to stop by when passing thru.

We stopped by today for lunch and boy was it good. The last visit a year or so ago we felt the food quality had slipped a little. Not the case today, everything was very good and we had a super server very attentive. Just a note, your drink is no longer included in the price.

We were here March 5. The food was excellent soul food. The sweet potato soufflé was the best I've ever had. Cornbread dressing and gravy to die for. Fried chicken was on point! And peach cobbler hit the spot. Was so upset we missed the Strawberry Shortcake and was upset :( about that! You want good, hearty southern food and... More

Recommend reservations without it the wait was over an hour. The hot food was really good, however, the salad bar was sorely lacking in variety. 2 kinds of Cole slaw lettuce tomatoes. The peel and eat shrimp were on the salad bar and maybe two more items. The bread is kept in a hot box which was really nice. A... More

My husband & I ate at Blue Willow on a Friday night and the seafood buffet was extremely good!! He had crab legs for $15 extra and said they were cooked perfectly. I think he had 2 plates and both were cooked the same. The buffet offered something for everyone. The salad bar was lacking but who needs a salad... More

If you want a great southern meal, Blue Willow Inn is the place to eat. Southern fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, black eyed peas are just a few of the southern delights on the menu. And if you are a senior, they offer a discount on Wednesday.
