We ate our supper off their buffet and it was all fresh and yummy! Since it was Friday evening the buffet had lots of seafood but other items also as I can't eat seafood! Their chicken is the best ever!! We'll be back! We just loved our waitress Anna!

Stopped at Ernie's for lunch just before noon on Friday April 7, was seated at table, and waited for over 10 minutes, virtually nobody seated in dining room, but was ignored by wait staff. Finally got up and left. Host was apologetic, but I have been making it a point to stop at this restaurant for over 30 years, but... More

The building has a dark parking lot, but the interior was nice in a country way. The buffet had over cooked food, some of which I couldn't identify without asking. The food was okay but choices were very limited. Service was very friendly and accommodating. Will not be going back on the look and taste of the buffett.

We stopped her out of nostalgia - the restaurant is old and smells fantastic outside. Upon entering, we were greeted with smiling faces and the most beautiful buffet I've ever seen. The food was fantastic in every way - if you like good old Southern cooking like Grandma used to make! I would eat here every week if I lived... More

I read reviews of various restaurants in South Boston, where we were spending the night, and the Friday seafood buffet at Ernie’s caught my eye. The reviews were generally but not overwhelmingly positive for Ernie’s but all of them that mentioned the Friday seafood buffet were positive, and we decided to try it. The buffet is from 4-9 and includes,... More

Some food on buffet was unidentifiable. Prices were okay. Ambiance was very country western. Service was attentive.

I went here two times. The first time was excellent, and the second time was poor. The first time, I had the grilled chicken special and it was as good as grilled chicken as I have ever had in a restaurant. Was very moist and seasoned well. The second time I had some beef tips with onions and peppers. All... More

You can order off the menu or get the buffet. The buffet is wonderful. It has a salad bar, lots of country vegetables & quite a few entrees to choose from. I have been here about 4 times & it has been good every time.
