FAQ’s


What is family style dining?

Family style dining is different from traditional restaurant dining in the fact that platters of food are placed at the table for all to share. Each table will choose 2 to 3 entrees and 4 sides. Guests then help themselves and pass the food around to one another—just like at home. And, just like at home, you can enjoy as much as you like.

Do you offer refills?

We are an all-you-can-eat restaurant, so you may enjoy refills of your favorite items at no additional charge.

Do you allow to-go boxes?

As an all-you-can-eat establishment, we do not offer to-go boxes. We do, however, offer to-go cups for your beverages.

What happened to the buffet?

We are proud to serve up delicious, comfort food in a family style setting, unlike any restaurant experience you’ve had before. Our southern-inspired dishes were birthed from the very same recipes that started it all more than 30 years ago! Every entree, side dish, and dessert comes from Paula’s cookbooks, and you better believe that when she visits, she makes her way back to our kitchen to show our staff how it’s done!

While we no longer offer a buffet option, our new, family style concept is sure to make everyone’s experience at The Lady and Sons memorable. Guests can help themselves to endless portions of delicious Southern food as they pass dishes around with family and friends in a setting that feels just like your own home.

Our food is made fresh daily, served hot, and seasoned with a special touch. They say no one cooks better than your mama, but we always strive to be a close second.
