This is the second time we've been fooled by the reviews for places to eat in A.P. The food was just ok, service barely adequate and seating is in a warehouse. And for this lunch cost over $25! One and done.

We ate after church on a Sunday so it was very busy, but we were seated almost immediately. Everything was very fresh and delicious. Great variety of baked, fried, meats, veggies. Cobbler and ice cream for dessert. Very reasonably priced as well.

This was an active lunch stop. Lots of people and lots of food. Great device and a wide variety of food. Very good quality. Excellent chicken breasts and beef tenderloin. What a great place.

They have a nice choice of vegetables, meats, sides, salad bar, and desserts. Love the fried fish and brisket. Plenty of choices for everyone in your group.

Got there right at opening (11). I suggest getting there then it gets packed quick! The food was amazing. Our waitress wasn’t very friendly. It was our first experience and she could’ve cared less. Good thing the food made up for her attitude and won’t...More
