Our only challenge is not overeating! The food is so good and there are so many choices, it's hard to stop enjoying all the flavors and varieties. We try to "pace ourselves" and leave room to split a cinnamon roll between the two of us!

The food was great and the lunch buffet price is very fair. The service is always top notch and they do it with a smile.

Family restaurant with consistently great food. Large selection of sides and a changing entree selection make for a memorable dining experience.

Not only is the food and service excellent, but it is down home. Mr. Brown greets guests, seats them, visits with them, buses tables and more. His waiters/waitresses are friendly and helpful. It is like being at home, but you don't do any of the work.

Brown's catfish is always delicious and there are so many choices. There is also wonderful cinnamon rolls and soft serve ice cream in addition to other deserts.

Very good southern-type fried catfish, shrimp, all the food that goes w/it. Prices a tad steep in our opinion, even if it is buffett. Everytime we've been there, it seems to be fresh. The deserts (pies/cobblers) not that great. They're usually "gummy", dried out from sitting under the heat.

Browns has a very good seafood buffet in the evening as well as one at lunch. The lunch buffet doesn't have as many choices but is a good meal.
