Reviewed 5 December 2017

Checked out the Southern Kitchen restaurant to see what it was like. In my opinion, it had the best buffet for those of use who like more home cooked type meals. I was very pleased that it had fried green tomatoes, fried mushrooms, a huge variety of meats cooked all different ways, including buffalo chicken wings, barbcue, roast, etc, a huge fruit and salad bar, and a dessert bar. The only thing I found somewhat lacking was the dessert bar. The banana pudding was runny, but other than that, everything was very good.

We have really enjoyed our visits at Southern Kitchen Country Buffet--both for lunch and dinner. The variety of foods is excellent--every day has different menus; however, some items are available every day. The salad bar is fresh and inviting with a lot to choose from. The entrees are varied and always include chicken, beef, pork, and fish items. The veggies are excellent with lots to select. The fried green tomatoes, green bean casserole, and broccoli and cheese casserole are wonderful! The dessert bar is somewhat lacking and could use some improvement, but the restaurant is still new, so it will probably improve. Service has been excellent. Prices are reasonable and include tea or coffee. Soft drinks are just a little more.

Saw some of the previous reviewers and can’t disagree more. This place is a great value for what is paid, the food is really good, and the staff are exceptional. The restaurant was very clean and the buffet tables were kept wiped down. I have no complaints for this place and was very happy with the value. Don’t listen to the complainers, give it a try.

Our family is very particular in their eating habits, which makes it difficult at best to find a place with enough variety to satisfy all of them. Ryan's had that, but let their establishment run down. We were very pleased to see Southern Kitchen Buffet take their place after a through remodeling. We had our first experience there and it was not very good. The price was ok, and we were seated immediately, but the food was fresh, and warm, but very little taste on some and too much salt on others. The desserts were mediocre at best. The server hovered continually which made us a little nervous. It was almost like she was wanting us to invite her to join us. Afterwards, we took a poll from each member there, and it was unanimous that we would not return there for several months to see if there had been an improvement. We hope they learn from their mistakes as we could use this type of restaurant in this area.
