This place has been here a long time. If only I lived closer. Everything about Moonlight, is top notch, and home made. The all you can eat buffet is beyond belief. You will not leave hungry. You might need help getting out the door.

Barbecue chicken, stuffing, green beans and mac and cheese was delicious! Lots to choose from. Waited a while to get our drinks and was very cold inside.

We came for catfish. For about $10 you get a decent plate of fish and two sides. The service was friendly and the place was busy. Nothing exciting, just comfort food.
