Great buffet with many home style choices for salads, entrees, sides and desserts. Also, a carving station featuring two meats. A great place to eat after a day of touring especially for families. Friendly service.

While my family was dining there a couple of tourist buses rolled in. The entire wait staff was extremely professional and did a fantastic job! Plus the food was delicious!

The service at General Pickett’s Buffet is friendly and fast. The food is good if you’re feeding a crowd and want quantity rather than quality. A lot of salt on some of the preparations and some of the desert cakes lack any real taste. I’m...More
