Very good southern-type fried catfish, shrimp, all the food that goes w/it. Prices a tad steep in our opinion, even if it is buffett. Everytime we've been there, it seems to be fresh. The deserts (pies/cobblers) not that great. They're usually "gummy", dried out from sitting under the heat.

Browns has a very good seafood buffet in the evening as well as one at lunch. The lunch buffet doesn't have as many choices but is a good meal.

Great family restaurant.One of the more popular items is their fried catfish, however many other items on the huge buffet are my fav! Excellent broccoli/cauliflower salad, red beans, baked fish, and large tasty hushpuppies are some of my favorite things. Save room for homemade cinnamon rolls that are included with buffet (as are drinks).
