The food is fantastic. Go Friday night for the buffet. They catered our wedding, and we had their banana cake as our cake. Everyone loved it!

Excellent catfish and the potato salad is out of control. Maybe order to go on really hot days. Not the best air conditioning. Great Friday buffet. Oh...if you go there, don't let the doors close on there own. They have a tendency to slam shut.
