Recommend reservations without it the wait was over an hour. The hot food was really good, however, the salad bar was sorely lacking in variety. 2 kinds of Cole slaw lettuce tomatoes. The peel and eat shrimp were on the salad bar and maybe two more items. The bread is kept in a hot box which was really nice. A... More

My husband & I ate at Blue Willow on a Friday night and the seafood buffet was extremely good!! He had crab legs for $15 extra and said they were cooked perfectly. I think he had 2 plates and both were cooked the same. The buffet offered something for everyone. The salad bar was lacking but who needs a salad... More

If you want a great southern meal, Blue Willow Inn is the place to eat. Southern fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, black eyed peas are just a few of the southern delights on the menu. And if you are a senior, they offer a discount on Wednesday.

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch. Service was good, food even better. Fried chicken and peach cobbler were incredible.

I was in the area this past Sunday visiting an aunt who is in hospice. After such an emotional visit, I felt I needed some comfort food, some food for the soul -- food that would take me back to those Sunday dinners at my grandmothers where my mom and aunts would bless us all with their culinary talents in...

We went, as we occasionally do, for lunch. Great fried green tomatoes, fried okra, and fried chicken. It's worth the overstuffed feeling you have at the end.

Last time the food was good but the seafood buffet on New Year's Eve was your typical lack luster buffet food at a premium price. Doubtful I will be back

Good selection of veggies. Has a nice gift shop. If you go for lunch it is wise to make reservations!! will go back. All three times... More
