It amazes me that people will go to a nearby "cafeteria" and get measly helpings of "canned cafeteria food", when Caterans is an AYCE buffet with HOMEMADE cooking from scratch. Fridays country style steak is to did for, unreal!!!! IF you luck out on turkey days, belly up. Absolutely incredible food!!!!!

This is my favorite place to eat. The food is good and the price is reasonable. I am a native of upstate, SC and the food taste like the food I grew up eating. It's southern food so it's fried food. However, they do have a salad bar. I love their chicken, grits and fried okra. If you want authentic... More

Really good Southern fare, fried chicken is especially tasty. Very busy on Sundays at noontime. Consistently good.

Incredible homemade food. The country ham on Saturday nights is un-real. The country steak on Fridays is habit forming. Simply fantastic. If you luck out and have turkey, prepare for a treat. Just like moms. Ignore the bad reviews, if you want fancy, stay away. It is cash and check only, though......

Comfort food, always good, with good selection. Inside has been remodeled with new tables and bright paint. Can not beat the fried chicken and fish available daily. If you leave hungry it is your fault.

I joined a couple of co-workers at place they call the pig trough. That's a suitable name for many low price buffets. For just over $8 including tea or coffee, the price was not that bad for lunch. Although it is a country buffet and one thinks of fried chicken and the like, I was looking for at least somewhat... More

We have eaten at Caterans several times. I've never been impressed with the run down facility, no air conditioning, or the fact that you have to feel your dishes to make sure they are clean, but when they are on their game, the home style cooking can be really good. It's hit or miss. HOWEVER...Today's experience will be our last.... More

The food is not acceptable! But the worst part for me was watching a server refilling desserts then licking her fingers clean then proceeded to fill peoples drinks. Plates were dirty and crusted with old food. Will not be back!

I'm sorry to rate this poor but my 1st experience was awful. I love southern food but this didn't taste like southern food to me. I don't care that the place kinda needs a make over and they don't take credit cards or debit cards but it was just awful! The worst thing was when I started eating my strawberry... More
