Overall plain environment and DANG watch that step from the dining area up to the buffet LOL but this is an OUTSTANDING restaurant for Southern comfort food. It's most decidedly worth waiting in line for during peak season- the locals and the tourists all enjoy the deliciousness offered here. Avoid the other buffets in town- you won't be sorry!

If you don't care about looks, but you do care about awesome food, then this is the place to try. The staff are amazing and the environment is laid back comfy as well. My children commented on how it was the first time they ever saw me eat out and not use salt and pepper lol. The entire family loved... More

This is our go-to restaurant anytime we go to our beach place about 1/2 hr away. Unbeatable home cooked vegetables, meats, seafood, & desserts. Top off with friendly, hard-working staff, & you'll be coming back again & again. Definitely a family favorite!

I never realized how good simple cabbage could be! Absolutely everything we ate at Casey's was delicious, from their awesome barbecue to their bread pudding. There were all kinds of people there enjoying the food; an altogether amazing experience! If you visit Wilmington, you MUST eat there!

Not recommended if you're a vegan, on a heart-healthy diet or like corporate/franchise restaurants... But, for these visiting Yankees, it was a "wow" survey of homey, Southern comfort food. We went during the Azalea Festival so it was crowded, but the line moved fast and food was fresh and plentiful. I had read reviews about "greasy" food. I had a... More

The place is very small and a bit tight, management is definitely not putting money back into the facility. BUT the food was excellent sho nuff Southern plenty of butter and seasoning. The seafood was nicely cooked and fresh also the cheesy potatoes were to die for. Service was awesome my waitress was very attentive. Yes I would go back... More

This is a very traditional old time southern food place. Most people go through the buffet (but you can order things too). Don't expect fancy, it's very basic family place, but I think the food is great! It seems to be all homemade with care, which is surprising since they have about 40 items on the buffet and only the... More
