We had the BBQ combo and it was amazing! Anita - hands down the best server we've ever had, anywhere! 10 stars from me • We will definitely be back! Oh, and get the corn!

Excellent staff. More than once different staff asked how our meal was and if there was anything they could do. Loved the variety of meats on the buffet; sausage patties, bacon, and smoked sausage. Fruit bar offered a variety and kids enjoyed the waffle machine.

The BBQ is good but not great. I had the pulled pork sandwich and my wife had the ultimate sandwich - again, if you are craving BBQ, it is not bad, but don't go out of your way to eat here. Service was really good, so I'm sad the food wasn't as good.

The food was pretty good - loved the pulled pork sandwich. The service was good as well. The ribs were a little tough but not bad. The BBQ sauce was excellent.

Had a day off work today, so I decided to hit Bennett's for lunch. Even though I am a local and well known in this town, I was treated as though I were the most important person in the room. I was served by the very lovely Amanda, whose service was impeccable in every way. I had the Carolina Pork... More
