This was our second and last time to visit this buffet. I was surprised that nothing was labeled. I picked up what I thought was fried fish only to take a bite and it was extra salty fried pork. The highlight of my meal was the boiled cabbage and the iceberg lettuce. We went on Sunday and it was an... More

After half of my family stopped by here on a trip to Georgia- and couldn't stop raving about how good it was- my whole family made the hour trek Lake City. It really is that good! The food selection is plentiful and everything taste incredible, like you would expect from a homestyle country restaraunt. Some things offered were DELICIOUS homemade... More

Returning from a baseball game at St.Leo, my wife and I stopped in this place for lunch. They have the best salad bar you will find anywhere, bar none. After that their selection on the hot bar is almost indescribable! You start off with soups, then onto vegetables, there must be at least 20 veggies, then onto the Meat, Fish... More

Almost everything is fried, including the ribs. Nothing was that good. There was cocktail sauce but no shrimp, fried or otherwise. The pork in gravy was ok. The fried okra did appear to be breaded in-house. But those were the highlights. All desserts were mediocre at best.

This place is conveniently located at the Mall in Lake City. Parking is no problem with handicap parking places available. The prices vary depending on the hour or day that you are there. The sad part about this is that they change their prices frequently, and they do not have much to offer for senior citizens except if you are... More

After attending a meeting in Lake City, our group of 4 decided to give this place a try. Unfortunately, I don't think any of us will go back again. I do have to say that the place is very clean and the service was very good. However, the food was not that good. The best part of the buffet was... More
