Not like otehr Buffets, The food tasted like it was made from scratch. I especially liked the Dumplings and pulled country Ham. If you like country cooking, you'll like this place. Be prepared to wait in line however becuase it is very popular.

I do not like giving this place only two stars as we love Dollywood, but the food is pretty bad. This is too bad because we used to love Aunt Grannies. The quality of the food keeps dropping. I wish they'd raise the price and...More
