Family dining means buffet. They had lots of pizza. Fried chicken was good. Chicken tenders lacked flavor without dipping into sauce. Mac-n-cheese was on par with Stouffer's frozen entree. When we dined there were tons of chicken entrees, lots of pork and ham, but no beef. Where's the beef? There was plenty of pies for dessert and self-serve soft ice... More

Note to self and everyone else ... be cautious when you are asked to pay AND tip before you enter. This restaurant is only for TV dinners fans because that is the quality of food they serve. The food was tasteless, macaroni & cheese seemed watered down, fried chicken was tough, fish was dry. "Fresh carved" roast beef tasted like... More

We have been going to Traditions since it opened. We have always given it high and favorable ratings. Our last two visits were disappointing. The quality of the food is deteriorating. We like especially the weekends when the seafood is featured. The steamed shrimp are about half the size as they used to be. The fried oysters are not only... More

We went here because everyone reccomended it to me. Food we had was very good for the most part but my wife and I agree that the mac n cheese certainly did not taste homemade like everyone had told me. The mashed potatoes were bland. They have all you can eat shrimp on the buffet and other items on different... More

Mother's Day with a large group was a breeze. We did have a short wait but that was to be expected on a holiday. The food was great, the staff was great, we will definitely return!

Food is very good, but they really need sugar free desserts. ( more than just cookies) Bath rooms really need updated and cleaned

This is a very clean and friendly place to eat. We ate lunch there and the food was good. It is a buffet style of dining, but the food was fresh and tasty with lots of choices. I understand their oysters are out of this world that they see on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. If you like buffets this... More

We ate at Traditions just before Christmas, on a seafood night. It has good basic home cooked food, I tried most of the seafood and it was good, and I'm not much of a seafood eater. The shrimp was very popular with my 18 yr. old daughter and I really loved the Fried Chicken and other dishes. Is it fancy,... More

Food is always excellent and service also . Only shortcoming id dressing/stuffing. There is 100% room for improvemement. Everthing else is great but you stuffing sucks.

I ate at Traditions as pat of a large gathering recently. We had over 100 people in a separate room, but shared the buffet. The food was excellent and the servers including the people behind the buffet were great. The only downside was that the people who came to lunch in the main dining room had to wait while a... More
