Great variety of southern staples, though missed cornbread, and everyhting was cooked perfectly. Only thing disappointing was the fried chicken, but it was minor compared to the other dishes, including the 1st time I've ever had teriyaki gizzards - excellent!

If it's great country cooking you want, then this is the place. The Market Diner serves the best cabbage, turnips, collards, and mustard greens ever. They also have great butter beans and peas; plus sometimes white acre peas when they are in season. Their meats...More

Fresh Veggies from across the street at the Farmer's Market. Southern Comfort Food to die for. Not the fanciest dining experience but the food was mouth watering good.

We are rarely in Thomasville but have wonderful memories of dining at the restaurant located at the Farmer's Market. We were so excited to be back in town a visit it again. Apparently it had changed hands several years ago and is now a buffet...More

They offer a large array of southern food. So many vegetable sides to choose from. On Friday and Saturdays, they offer seafood on their buffet: fried fish, baked fish, frog legs, mussels, fried shrimp, baked shrimp, crawfish and more. They offer dessert as well. Love...More

The food was pretty good but the inspection score made me feel hesitant. There are too many other good restaurants in Thomasville to eat at a place with questionable health ratings.

Stopped here while traveling through after seeing positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We did not have a good experience. A buffet with lots of carbs, as many starchy dishes as you could ever want, and everything was really salty. Salad bar was almost non-existent. Very...More

This is a buffet style restaurant, food was quite good but other buffets have a larger selection. Was rather noisy so conversation was difficult.

You know, I hate to say I'm not sure, but I can give you a range. Price depends on if it's lunch or dinner. Dinner is higher. Sunday lunch is about the price of dinner. On Friday and Saturday, I think, there is seafood... More
