We went here for dinner and had about a 10 min wait. The food was excellent and the service was too! We both had the buffet and for $18 each you could not complain. It was well worth the money and we would eat here again!

The food was excellent at Lady and Sons. We had the buffet, make sure you are plenty hungry when you go! It's a bit pricey (around 18.00 for the buffet) and the buffet isn't very large but the food is absolutely delicious. It also included a choice of banana pudding, ooey gooey cake, or peach cobbler. We both had pudding,... More

The food was great but the service started out very slow. Waited about 10-15 minutes before our waiter came to the table. The server apologized and was friendly but didn't set a great first impression.

I had heard such great things about this restuarant from friends and was really expecting a great experience only to be totally disappointed. Maybe I was expecting something else. I envisioned a southern house with antiques and a homey feel. What's presented is more along the lines of a cafeteria. The food is very southern which in this case means... More

We made reservations a few months before visiting, but didn't seem necessary on a Monday in April. We were seated immediately and helped quickly the entire visit. The pan fried cornbread and the cheddar biscuits are absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately, we filled up on those and could hardly eat our meals! I got the pot pie and my husband got the... More

We thought the food was overly salted. Buffet and some ala carte menu items. Banana Pudding was an exception to the overall disappointment with the meal. That was exceptional.

We made reservations and were seated immediately. Our server took about 10 minutes before he stopped by the table and then he forgot what we ordered, but he was nice. The food was really good! We will go back.

We had a group of 50 for dinner. We don't the buffet which included rolls, salad bar, ribs, meatloaf, fried chicken, pot roast, and all the sides you could imagine. We also got to pick from 3 desserts. We had a private room in the basement and it was perfect. Great venue, great food and good service.

We love Paula Deen, so we had to stop by; but we were pleasantly surprised at what a nice restaurant it turned out to be. Many people ordered the buffet but we chose to order off the menu and were very pleased. The service was exactly what we were hoping for when thinking of Southern Hospitality. The food was great...

First of all, everyone was friendly and welcoming. And it smelled great. My brother and I put our names on the wait list and we're told it would be about 15 minutes. Later, after about 15 minutes, we overheard one of the staff saying "they need to stop telling people the wait is only 15 minutes". It was about that... More
