The place is not fancy. Generally folks go for the buffet. We ordered from the menu. Food was not too bad although my wife did not like the lasagna she ordered, She said the house salad was actually quite good. Cornbread was good and fresh. I had a good meal and you can't beat the prices. Service was great.

They have a great breakfast with a buffet if want it or you can order off the menu. They have a good lunch and dinner buffet as well.

I was by myself the other night and decided to order my supper. I had fried chicken, fried zucchini, cabbage and peach cobbler. Everything was absolutely delicious. If you live in Lyman, I advise you to try it. You won't be sorry/

Called about the sign out front. It says All You Can Eat Crab Legs on buffet. It was 24.99 for the crab legs and an additional 5.00 more if you want to eat the buffet with it. And lots seafood items on the buffet. The cost for the buffet only costs 10.99. So we went. Very few food choices on... More

We find the food here quite good and the service is adequate as well. On Sun you see mostly an older crowd coming from church. It is served buffet and all you can eat. Various choices and hubby says the fried chicken is excellent. We stop by when we're in the area.

We travel here from Spartanburg several Sundays each month. Their service is always fast and food choices are varied. There are four or five meats available as well as deserts. Many vegetables are on the bar and a great home made treat is bread pudding. The restaurant is dated but clean and their clientele range from wealthy to middle class... More

The Lyman Cafe is your basic long-time-in-business southern cooking buffet. I live very close and have eaten there maybe 6 times both lunch and breakfast. You'd get better food and a better selection at one of the chain buffets (Ryans, Golden Corral) for about the same price, but there's nothing like that close by. If you're in the neighborhood, just... More
