The food was pretty good. Disappointed it was a Cafeteria style restaurant and not a buffet. Also, disappointed they did not have fried chicken. We had fried catfish and turkey. It is a little expensive for lunch (around $23.00 for two). Would eat there again...More

Good food, great service, one of Perry's prized places, only thing I wish is that pies were sold as wholes and the meats very good could be expanded out a little more like fish or mince pies

The food was ok, nothing remarkable. We went for lunch and it was really crowded so I was hopeful but..... The place is pretty small inside too. The food is served cafeteria style and for the money the amount of food is somewhat minimal.

My wife, her sister and brother and her brother in law and I stopped by for lunch before attending a funeral nearby. To begin with, you enter, cafeteria style and take a tray. As you move through the line, you indicate which meats and vegetables...More
