Absolutely delicious fresh home style cooking. The serving staff is friendly and the portions are huge! Well worth the money but be prepared to wait because this place is ALWAYS busy.

We were greeted and welcomed with open arms as we walked in the door. Our host gave us a bit of history of the restaurant. The buffet line was explained and recommendations were given. Awesome food and definately great service. Suggest making this one of your stops to experience the awesome hospitality. What a great experience from beginning to end.

Food should not be political. Let me say this right up front. That being said I love the food and atmosphere of the Bistro. But yesterday I went in for lunch, left a tip as I always do, and found a table to eat my meal. It was later in the day so wasn't very busy, and I put the... More

My Mom and husband had the fried chicken and they loved it. I had the chicken tenders and they were very good. I loved the fried cabbage and the mac and... More

We had to wait in line for about 15 minutes to order. The line never seemed to get larger or smaller. You order as you walk through by the food. Food was hot. The Thursday special was meatloaf which I tried. It was ok. Not a lot of flavor but not awful either. The sides were mostly bland as well.... More

Best southern food EVER!! The fried chicken is so tasty and the mac-n-cheese is the best in the south. Try the key lime cake.

Went with a friend, it was both of our first time eating here. We were a little confused about what to do at first but the hostess explained. It is cafeteria style. I had smothered pork chops and she had ox tails. We both enjoyed our lunch, portions were good, enough to take home. The price was great as it... More

We got there just before they were closing (6pm on Sunday!) so they had run out of a bunch of the sides and some of the entre's. But got the smothered (fried) pork chops which were very good, collard greens, seasoned string beans, mac n cheese, and yellow rice. Everything was great! Next time I'm getting there earlier so I...

We come here a couple of times a year. The food is good and the portions are reasonable. Our first time here was a bit weird because when you checked out a couple of the ladies made remarks outloud. Since then it's been better.
