$9 at lunch with water. Decent deal. I love the fried Okra they have often. Salad bar is stocked well enough to make a decent salad. Seafood salad is the best cold salad they offer. The main course is a mixture of everything so all...More

Excellent food with many choices. Service is OK, but not great. Hours are good for travelers or locals, too.

We are here on a Friday evening. Price is less than $13 with tax and just water to drink. I sampled several selections. The salmon is terrific. Tender, flakey and not overly seasoned. Just right. The pot roast is juicy, tender and has great flavor....More

We were there on a Friday fish night and their haddock was especially wonderful. Wide variety on the salad bar, main dishes, and desserts. Some buffets taste "generic" but this food tasted home cooked. Very busy with many customers but we didn't have to wait.
