My husband loves this place, had an early breakfast there daily, the lunch and dinner buffet always has a good selection of homestyle food.

Stopped for breakfast on the way back to Atlanta. The restaurant is right off the highway across the street from Cracker Barrel. The buffet was plentiful and quite scrumptious. The service was excellent. They had good strong coffee, nice crisp bacon, and fresh baking powder...More

We walked in & personally I was a little nervous given it was a buffet. I don't normally do buffet food, but I figured we would stay. I'm so glad we did! The food was really good & the staff we're friendly.

Food is very good. My favorite time is on Friday when they serve a great seafood buffet. I try to eat there at least 2 times a month.
