My husband and I doubled once at this restaurant. We had never been there before so we did like normal and ordered two appetizers and four dishes. All of the food was fantastic! The one thing I will say is that their portions are HUGE!...More

We were too late to dine, but enjoyed the live music, cozy atmosphere, and great service while we had a couple drinks. I want to return for the food.

This was my first trip for lunch But it won't be my last. The Shrimp and Grits were awesome! The staff very friendly. Price was reasonable for the Buffett.

Recommended to us by a local. The food was amazing! Helpings were huge. Many leftovers to go. Service was great. The owner came out to say hi. The lasagna is the best I’ve ever had.

Steak for two. The filet is sooo good. Sausage and cheese tray is the bomb. The baked potato is so good. Heck, everything is great. Leigh Anne is awesome! Amanda is Awesome! This is probably one of the best places to eat in Tupelo!
