It is a bit of a trek to Shealy's from Columbia, but it is well worth the ride. Although it is know for its barbeque, everything on Shealy's buffet is fantastic.

Food is great, the atmosphere is like a big family dinner. Not fancy, but everyone is friendly. It's a buffet, the servers bring your drinks and always ask for pulley bones.

Shealy's is a fun place to go eat, the restaurant has a good character about it that makes you feel welcome and not minding in the least that you sit at long spacious tables with other folk. Our motorcycling gang went to Shealy's to try what I've heard to be a great place to eat and we were not disappointed!... More

Buffet style with long tables where everyone sirs together. We like coming to eat the pulled pork, but they also have good chicken. Country style side items a salad bar & a desert bar ensures everyone gets something they like!
