This is a small restaurant located in a strip off Hwy. 19N. in Chiefland, Fl. They offer "senior" discounts, and many locals visit here for the large choices of various foods on the heated buffet. My sister and I chose buffet selection. They offer soups, salads, and everything from fish, chicken, pork, roast beef, and all the trimmings. They kept... More

We were on US 19 and happy to be near 1998 Grille at lunchtime having wanted to try it for years, but never passing at the right time. It was closed on Sunday. Next option was the Gathering Table. At 1:00, the parking lot was full and the inside so packed that when we opened the door we couldn't even... More

Heard great things about the Buffet. It was ok, fried food was a bit greasy but the peach cobbler was good. Although, didn't look at the menu so that might be better.

I'm not sure if I reviewed this restaurant last year when we were here for Sunday brunch, but I'm here to say the food is great. The buffet is loaded with home style, honest Southern food. Yummy fried chicken and mashed potatoes. Veggies were terrific and the peach cobbler is mouth-watering. We will be back again and again.

We were a little disappointed with the food bar. There was a decent variety, but we were not crazy about the food quality. The salad bar had a good variety of items. The food bar did include desserts and ice cream.

This will now become our "must stop" place as we travel from Colorado to Texas! To be honest, since it's located in a strip mall, you do not notice it but it's worth the stop. This is a family place with a over-abundant all-you-can eat buffet for a very reasonable price. The servers were super friendly, always checking that "all... More
