I was surprised with the reviews. We are from the Chicago area and I took my mother to Savannah for Mother's Day. She wanted to eat at this restaurant. Dealing with the reservation process was a pain, but the food was worth it. We did not eat at the buffet, but ordered directly from the menu. I think that is key. I think if you order from the menu, you will get a better quality of food. The fried greens I ordered were absolutely wonderful.
