We met with a large group of people for dinner. It was necessary to stand and wait at the cashier's stand while she sought the manager to get approval for seating prior to payment. She wasn't particularly friendly or pleasant about the situation. When it was resolved, we sat at long tables in the second room. Avery pleasant waitress took... More

We have eaten at the restaurant in Brunswick, GA and that location offered many more selections of just about everything. We were looking forward to the sweet potatoes we had in Brunswick and the Macon restaurant didn't have them... a big disappointment because they were exceptional. The items Macon did have were always filled, fresh and warm to hot. The... More

As a buffet goes, the variety is less than what I would normally expect. But they definitely made up for it the taste of the food. It looks like they worked diligently to make sure that the food was fresh and hot. It would've been nice to have more choices in the meat department – but again, what was there... More

On a business trip, I convinced a couple of co-workers to give this restaurant a try (based on my experience with other locations. What a great choice. The salad bar was filled with a variety of fresh salads. The meat selections were too numerous to describe. I did good- and avoided the dessert bar altogether, but what I saw of... More
