REVIEWS OF McClain General Store & Restaurants IN Mississippi

Randy Allen

Great place to take the family to eat and have fun.

Mona Torrence

The food was not impressive at the buffet. I make these types of dishes at home all the time. When I go out to eat I prefer something I don't eat on a regular basis. The food was more like cafeteria quality, also. But the service was great!

faye shelby

The service and food was great. Will tell everyone I know to try it. We will be going back when in town .

Erica Allen

Been here twice. The food is good, great variety, and the building itself is large and spacious. They have a small store to buy items including food, cute whatnots, hunting gear and guns. They also have a steak restuarant if you dont want to eat off the buffet. They have an outdoor sit and eat area with a bar too. It's nice but you smell all the animals. They have other outdoor venues like a petting farm. Mr. Lex over in the hunting area is really nice and knowledgeable. My only negative is some of the people who work out front are not at all friendly and helpful, and unless you're white, dont expect much (I'll leave that right there).

takoda dayton

Petting zoo was great. Missed the last safari for the day

Ilene Jones

Great place. Only two complaints I have was that they ran out of spoons while we were eating and were were finished with our first plate before our drink order was taken.

Gregory Bismack

Family friendly place, fun atmosphere. Great value dinner buffet with tons of options even for the health conscious such as myself. Made myself a huge salad topped with just a little bit of fried catfish, delicious.

Michelle DZ

We always try to stop here on our way through town. Great food and atmosphere. We sit on the outside patio and order from the dinner menu. We haven't had the buffet nor taken the safari to see the animals. We usually get there too late for the safari. We love going through their country store and seeing the animals. Fun for every age but a definite must see for kids!

David Dickerson

The steakhouse restaurant is great

Benjy Wilson

I have been there twice in one week. The good - Buffet, General store, Farmer's market and Safari/petting zoo was great on Saturday. Enjoyed the whole experience. The bad - Went last night to try the burger and onion rings. Asked for medium well but got well burnt. It was dry and tasteless. The onion rings we're a bit greasy as well. May need to just stick with the buffet. After that burger, I'd hate to see what you do to a steak.

Karla Luke

So honey feeling! Great food!

Michel Brown

My wife and I had lunch there. We did not have the buffet. We had sandwiches with a cup of soup. We had good service.

Kimberley Boyd

Such a great place. The buffet was delicious, the service was good and loved the decor. The Safari was so fun.

Kentucky Girl

We had such a great day at McClains! Took our children on an exotic animal safari, which they loved! We were given extra buckets of feed for the animals, so we had plenty to give out. The water buffalo seemed to be the hungriest, but were gentle in their requests for being fed. We went to the petting zoo and fed everything from miniature horses and cows, to a camel

Joe Stringer

Great food

Wade Baskin

Surprisingly big with an excellent selection of meats (which is why I go) and the prices are great. This place also have a general merchandise center, a petting zoo, and a farmer's market. The buffet has a great reputation with the locals, but I haven't tried it.

Bernice Kilgo

McClain is a very classy place. It beautiful. The food is great. The wattriess was very nice pleasant friendly smiling. The General store was great to. It had a lot of nice things there. The ladies in the store were friendly. Kind. Very nice. They have a lot of events there. Church, zoo, weddings, cabin stay. Its just a wonderful place to go. Great vacation. Its peaceful and quiet.

Charles Shive

Cruise in was cool. Lots of nice cars Desserts in General Store were fabulous

Doris K. Powe

Barry Brown

Our waitress was a people person ,very friendly and helpful. Buffet was seafood style and I was very surprised to see softshell crabs as an offering. They were wonderful !!

Archie Tripp

Food was good. Mac and cheese no season. Chicken was hot and seasoned well. Atmosphere great. Nice and clean.

Hits The Spot Cleaning Services

Love the food, had breakfast, and a sweet potato pecan pie. O so good, then went to the market bought so blueberries and sunflower seeds at a good price. Better than Hold Foods. Next is dinner..

william Bilbro

Great food!! Friendly services

Jeff Joseph

Interesting store with quality meats,lots of other misc. stuff and guns.

Sharon Hall

My brother was visiting from Texas, so we decided to give McClain's a try. Every employee we met was friendly as well as helpful. The waitress met our needs but was not intrusive. We ordered the buffet, and the food was well-prepared. My brother loved the meatloaf, and I thought the cheesecake was scrumptious. As a side note, I tried the locally produced honey. It is delicious.

Timothy Taylor

Got in ahead of the big Sunday lunch crowd and glad we did. Lots of good home-style choices on the buffet. I especially liked the fried chicken...juicy and tasty. Great service from Marissa, too.

Rissa Lancaster

Food, atmosphere, service - everything was excellent. Evem the restrooms are well kept. Great place to go with lots to see.

David Carr

Fun afternoon. The "safari" is fun and there are a lot of animals to see and feed, but basically it is a wagon attached to a tractor riding around a couple of pastures looking at unusual animals. All the staff we encountered were well trained and personable. The buffet restaurant offered good food and lots of it! I do not believe the desserts were homemade, but the rest seemed to be freshly cooked. The general store and farmers market were also nice, but as far out as it is from from the city we will not be going often.

Tracy Moldovan

Tried the buffet, was pretty good. Not over priced and staff was super friendly. Will be going back to see the petting zoo

Susan Carrier

Good food for a decent price, my favorite part is seeing the animals.

We had heard about this place for a long time, so while visiting friends in Brookhaven we decided to make a day trip to there. We looked around for a while and my wife and I decided to take the safari tour. We really enjoyed it and the closeness of the animal encounters was very cool. Our friends we were with made us all a 4:30 reservation at the steak house. The atmosphere was good, the appetizers were great and the food was great, with one exception. My wife’s filet was about 1/3 fat. It was also kind of strangely shaped, more of a flat V shape than a hockey puck shape. After about 2 bites she decided to put it to the side. We did tell our waitress about it and the chef came out later to talk to us. He mentioned something about the end of the of the cut being the reason it was more fatty. I understood what he was saying but I had never had a filet of that configuration before. He offered my wife a replacement but we didn’t want another steak at that late of a point in our meal so we told him we’d just take it home for our pups. My wife did get her dessert comped which was nice of them. When it was time to wrap it up both our friends and us requested our leftovers boxed up to take home. Our friends’ meals were boxed up individually but ours never came. When we inquired about it we understood that the waitress didn’t understand we wanted the mostly whole $28 dollar filet and the mostly uneaten macaroni and cheese to take home. That was probably the most disappointing part of the meal. Normally I leave %20 for good service but being as how I lost most of a $28 dollar filet a I could have treated my pups with at the least, I only left %10. Overall it was a great visit but if we make it back there I’ll make sure I specify a real filet and reiterate, again, that we want the leftovers. This is a great day trip destination for a family. There’s a petting zoo and the safari tour. There’s a cool gift shop and a farmer’s market right beside it. One thing I wasn’t aware of is the Outfitter section where they sell firearms and knives. A SilencerShop kiosk was also an interesting surprise. This is a great spot to visit even if it’s a bit of a drive for you.

Kelly Woods

The Safari tour was OVERPRICED!!! Wasn't what I expected at all. I can go to a ZOO and see more animals for less money. Very disappointed

Darlana Miller

Clean, service was horrible. We were seated but then nobody ever came to wait on us. We ate buffet which was just ok. We had to ask for something to drink, when the server did arrive she said, sorry I was doing something else. SMH, I chose to eat here, I would figure we should of had a server. Not impressed with food or service.

Nicole Cunningham

Good food warm inviting atmosphere

Jonathan Jefcoats

Very nice new looking location. Staff is very friendly. We took the private tour and guide was very nice. Restaurant buffet was fresh unlike most buffetts. Safari itself needs more variety of animals but this place is new and growing. Highly similar to the global wildlife in Folsom, LA

Renee Hollingsworth

The food was great, and the atmosphere was welcoming! A variety of things to do and see for the whole family!

Alisa R.

Love the steakhouse, the Farmers Market, the gift shop, and the gun store! This place has an amazing menu and great food. Helpful and friendly staff make the experience even better!

Buddy May

I buy fresh veges there. Incredible selection!

John Purifoy

On way now for another great dinning experience and outting with my fiance. She deserves a special outting especially after the horrible circumstances thrown her way on her Bday. All will be great!! I love you dear. Can't wait to sip on some top shelf and share kisses with the misses. Wish we could stay longer, main cabins are great with good price points. Would be getting 5 stars if valet was available...button going to waste on the car!

A Potter

Disappointing after reviewing the website. Great web design, though.

Chelsea Lewis

Family went to do "Santa Safari" and had a blast! Something really different to do and entertaining. Interesting animals and cute general store. I intend to go back soon and try the buffet because it looked amazing

Adam Manning

We ate in the steakhouse and it was excellent and the staff was very friendly and happy to be there.

Jessie Gainey

Family friendly with neat variety of items available to purchase in shopping area. Not to mention the food was delicious

Cathy Craven

The lunch buffet was great! The vegetables were seasoned perfectly. Very nice atmosphere and wonderful sightseeing with the animals

Victoria Lofton

The food was great, and the service was great, it was my first time there, I love it

Brenda Smith

This was my first time at McClain's. Took my brother to celebrate his birthday and it was fantastic! We ate at the Steakhouse and everything was wonderful...from the food to the service! I would highly recommend.

Sue Babington

Pretty area, good food, nice atmosphere, fin place to take children to see animals

Lakeshia Ware-Griffin

Simply amazing resort. There are different variety of animals to see, like zebras, long horns and buffaloes. They offer tour rides in case you want to site see from a distance. They offer outdoor activities and comfortable rocking chairs for outdoor seating. Must visit in person. Words can't fo this place justice. The food and waitress staff are simply amazing.

Cheyenne Smith

The buffet was phenomenal! Also had a great frappe from inside the general store. The petting zoo was so much fun, my daughter and I had a blast!

Ryan Harrell

Nice environment, open, with a real upper class lodge vibe. A decent selection of items on their buffet. Their side items were alright but lacked flavor, a little more seasoning would have been nice. The grilled chicken was the best item, tender with a good flavor. The turkey and ribs were also pretty good. There also have a nice country market in the front of the restaurant. It’s a neat place for sure.

Jeff Davis

Just for the buffet good food but a little short on choices and the service was slow. As for the general store very nice and great service. The gun store was very nice and very helpful, showed us several different guns and was quite knowledgeable on everything I asked about. The bar is nice and has a large selection offerings. Didn't get to take in all the rest that will be next trip.

Dawn Carter

Great food and there butter is delicious

Lynn Darrell

Nice place. I will be back. Great food and great service

Markesha Wells

The soul food was better than most places Hot and fresh. Beautiful restaurant and great friendly staff. Great lunch buffet. I will be back to try the dinner

Tracmae Treasure Chest

We had a great time feeding the animals up close. We even bought 3 chicks out of the store for pets. They had piglets for sale, but we already have 2. It was a good family birthday event.

Brandi Laster

Wonderful staff and good down home eating! Their farmers market is genuinely fresh and they have a tavern plus a bakery along with a couple more attractions that are well worth the visit. Take a Sunday and go spend it at this place! You'll need a whole day! There's alot to check out!

Andrew Johnson

Ashley is such a wonderful server! Always makes us feel right at home! Food was excellent! Will be back soon!

MS Magnolia67

We loved everything about McClain's! From the Safari to the petting zoo, the general store and the restaurants (especially the buffet)! We'll be back again and again.

The Dubya

The place is incredible. They didn't spare any expense. Food was decent but not amazing. Kind of funny to have a restaurant. With a separate bar. And a steak House. AND a gun store all in one

Amy G

It was a wonderful was to spend Fourth of July with kids! Worth the trip into town and the cost. We ate lunch there and also did the petting zoo. Although it wasn't the type of petting zoo that you could walk around with the animals, you could reach most of them through the fence and they were all friendly! ✌

Frank E.D. Primer

My family & I really had a wonderful time at McClain and the food was fantastic

Barbara Owens

Awesome restaurant. Great food, betty friendly service. So much to see and do here. A great get a way.

Jean Rigdon

My friend and I met for lunch and had such a good meal. I had the grilled chicken sandwich and onion rings. My friend had the burger and side salad. The onion rings were some of the best I have ever had. The grilled chicken was very good. I ate half of my sandwich and some onion rings. I would have loved a cup of soup but the only choice was a chicken sausage gumbo and I do not care for the recipe. It was a dissapointment that their was not more than one soup to choose from. My friend said her burger was the best burger she had ever had and ate all of it minus the the top bun. She usually only eats half. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant and the store. It smelled like they were baking bread while we were there. On my way out we went through the bakery and bought cookies and beautiful muffins to take home. I also bought a big chunk of the Red Rind Cheddar Cheese. My home is 45 miles away from McClain's but I will go back. This is a very nice place to eat. I have been to the seafood buffet as well. Some items were delicious and some flops like the hush puppies which were not done and were very heavy. The salad bar was good. The turnip greens tasted like they were just reheated and I expected better. The green beans were really good . The deserts tasted commercially prepared which is really disappointing considering the beautiful bakery out front. There were no sugar free items that night. We asked our server to check if they were out or maybe had some in the back to bring out. She said she didn't know why but they didn't have any.

John Helms

The environment makes the home cooked food even better. The servers were friendly and attentive.I recommend it.

Tom Russell

I don't have a lot of experience with McClain but their hamburger is very good as are their onion rings. I was planning on leaving a bit on my plate, but that plan fell through. When you walk in you're in something like a gift shop that also happens to be a meat market and a pie shop. The filets looked good in the case. We ate in the tavern which is the bar, and it was a nice atmosphere and the bartender was friendly and responsive.

Barbara Harper

We had Family Reunion there and has a wonderful time. Great place for all ages. The food and service excellent!

Dianne necaise

Enjoyed the petting zoo. Enjoyed the good food. Seeing the fennic fox. And other animals and the gift shop. Great place to visit with the famu

Jennifer Jackson

Such a cool place...went for breakfast buffet, and was fantastic....heads up tho..they pull breakfast at exactly the time breakfast ends, so plan accordingly if you want 2nds

Kayla Reeder

My family and I had a BLAST! We got to see all kinds of wonderful animals. Our favorite part was being able to get up close and personal to feed and interact with the animals.

Portia Smith

Very great place! There is so much to do there. It’s a little out of the way as far as distance goes for me but not too bad. The service was great the food was good. The reason I did not give it a full 5 stars is because the food seemed over seasoned ( too much salt) but overall a very great place to have family and a casual meal!

braddearman44 .

Fantastic. Food is great!

Eric Ferguson

Very nice, good food , we will be back. Extremely clean, nice people. Mandy was our server she took care of us. THANKS MANDY!

Miss Jackson

Great! BIRTHDAY PARTY TIME. Petting zoo & safari

Kraig Goreth

We've been meaning to try this place. We stopped by to try some supper. It was all ok, but not really all that good. Most of the food was under-seasoned, everything that was fried (which is about half) was too greasy like the oil temperature was too low. Our server was great. Very nice and checked with us frequently. We may go back for an animal safari, but we'll eat somewhere else.


First Time Eating Here , I had the Chicken Quesadilla . They were made to perfection , you get 4 BIG slices for 10.70 ! Worth the buck !

Xavier Ransom

Had A Great Time....Wide Variety Of Animals And A Very Friendly Staff, Wouod Recommend This Over The Zoo

Leslie Wooten

My Husband, and I went for our Anniversary and it was awesome best steak ever and the service was wonderful. We will definitely be going back soon

Deanna Lee

Absolutely the best place I've been to in a very long time! The food was amazing, the service was amazing, and the thing where you drive threw and feed and see all the animals was absolutely awesome! My kids and I had the best experience here!

matt theriot

Dear God. The filet was hands down the best I've ever had. The staff was great. Follow up edit: Went back this past weekend for the ribeye. Fantastic. I can't speak highly enough about this place. The whole experience is wonderful. Everyone seems very happy to be working there and that reflects into the hospitality that is given to the customers. I am now a regular here. Also be sure to ask for Hiller for your waitress. Shes on point.

Stacie Horton

Great good and customer service. Atmosphere is very friendly. Nice and clean facility. A very classy place with a touch of country. A very unique and wonderful place for two or the entire family.

Aundrea Kelly

I have to say that the food & services was great

DL Govan

This is a fun place and worth visiting. It is family friendly.

Mac West

Excellent place to visit. Safari tour was wonderful for the adults and the kids. Very nice restaurant here for the family to eat at. Awesome fresh market to shop from. A little bit of everything here!

Natisha Moore

The tour was great and the buffet was awesome... a great family outing or trip for groups. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

Geno Renaldo

We ate the buffet, not as good as I would think but not bad either.

Robin Gregory

Just ate there tonight. Got 2 salads, 2 biscuit, 2 filets, a water and a sweet tea for $62. Steaks were raw and had no seasoning what do ever. Offered us only a free dessert in response to meat being totally awful! Do not waste your time going here. Absolutely not worth it

Jeremy Mayfield

I really like the direction they are going. They will be great in a few years

Impulse0076 .

This place is great.

Susan VanDegrift

Their buffet was disappointing. Nice place. But too bland

Allen Salvage

The location itself has lots to offer. I can't comment on the quality of the restaurant, but I did like the general layout of the farmer's market and general store. I like the mixed-use concept. The kids enjoyed the property. I felt the pricing for the activities added up quickly for the fall festivities and didn't amount to the value those dollars might get elsewhere. Overall, I might come back and evaluate the restaurant, but don't plan on purchasing the additional activities.

Anderson Collier

We took some out of town friends today. The safari was well worth it, although make sure you buy the feed. The animals come right to the truck to get fed. 4 stars My son loves the animals in the general store. 3 stars We usually eat the buffet, which is good if you like country cooking. Tonight we went to the steak house and it was a mistake. There was one other table yet it still took close to an hour to get out steaks. Mine was very over cooked. The manager did replace it with a more appropriately cooked steak. But the quality of the meat is not worth the price. If you are looking for a really good steak, go to one of the other nice steak restaurants in the area. 1 star But if you are looking for a unique experience, I recommend going.

Dana Sanderson

Very nice place friendly people will come back again.


Went in for breakfast today 06/20/2018! Let's just say it didn't go well, Waffle House here I come! I just wasted 30 minutes! They say it was a big party before me. 5 people is not big, 10 is !!! How long does it take to prepare 2 biscuits and gravy and a side of bacon? Breakfast is the easiest quickest meal to prepare. Do better!! I want be back! You been open now long enough to handle the people who come in to dine with you!

Jon Mcleod

Service was great food was ok but with the amount of people and small size of buffet you can only expect to make one trip without waiting back in line for 20 minutes.

Ashley Andrews

Great food and atmosphere! My kids love going to look at the animals.

Olivia Ivy

All the animals are well fed and friendly! The staff are patient, kind, and knowledgeable! I thoroughly enjoyed myself!

Donna Camp

We were seated promptly but it took over 10 minutes for waitress to come by our table. She told us to get in line for buffet. We told her we wanted to order off the menu. Took another 10 minutes to get menus. When waitress finally came to take our order she did not have a pen. After another 30 minutes another employee came by our table and asked if we needed anything, we just asked for our food. Hostess came by then and she sent manager over. He told us we could get something off the buffet while we waited for our meal. We just told them no thank you and to cancel our order. We left. 45 minutes seems like to long to wait for our meal. I hope in time they will figure things out and be more customer friendly. Probably won’t try this place again.

Kristin Warnock

They are very knowledgeable about the animals the safari tour was amazingly awesome


Food was great. Good southern style buffet with dessert and salad bar. Got to spend time with some animals in the general store as well.

leashle anderson

Great atmosphere best buffet i ever been to food is well seasoned freindly staff

melissa savell

Was a very nice place to eat and buy gifts

Charlene Smith

This place is a big boon to this area and is only half a mile from the house, so we go pretty often. Really good fried chicken pretty much every day, plus at least one other entree choice, along with fresh vegetables and sides. There is also a nice salad bar and plenty of choices for dessert. It is much more than just a buffet restaurant, and has fresh meat, provides special order cuts along with general store items. Bring the kids to see the wild animals.

J 025913

Just discovered this place and it is my #1 place to visit in the area! They have so many thing to do on site and the food is amazing whether that be buffet or the steakhouse! This is my go to destination to show visitors a good meal in the area along with Mama Hamils and Gibbs Country Store. McClain did a great job!! Thank you!

Doug Mays

glorified Golden Corral. exactly the clientele you'd expect

Audrey L Morehead

LOVED this place, food, & atmosphere! Buffet was AWESOME! Hidden GEM!

Jason Hooper

Buffet is always stocked with Southern staples cooked the way they should be. Steakhouse is very good. My filet was cooked perfectly and had a very good flavor.

Susan Hearn

Good food. Neat decor and an animal safari

Richard Taylor

Incredible! A quality experience all around. Food and drinks were great. Interesting collection of animals. Great for kids, too.

Marina Bass

Awesome must visit.

Burt Strickland

We made our first visit the last weekend in July. Wonderful food and experience.

Nancy Dampier

The food was great, we ate at the buffet. The kids really enjoyed the view & even in this MS heat it wasn't uncomfortable sitting outside on the covered, screened in porch thanks to the fans they've put up. I picked up some delicious jams & syrup too. The gift shop has some great items you won't find anywhere else.

Percy Perry

Wow! What a beautiful location! I recently went there on mother's day to celebrate and enjoy they buffet that they offer there! The wait to get to the buffet was quite long and a but disorganized.. I don't think it was because of the increase in customer I just think it was the lack of communication from the employees to management.. I felt like they should have been able to prepare for that alot better.. the food was delicious and definitely fresh, but yet again they had not prepared for that many people some of the items I had to return to to the line to get once they had some more come out.. but as far as the food is was beyond good! Definitely seasoned great! While we were there we decided to do the petting exhibit which made the whole location completely different from anywhere else! You were able to pet and feed a wide variety of animals! I highly recommend checking this place out!

Cynthia Conguista

Food and service is just ok. Nothing special. Actually, food is just barely in the ok range.

Carol Myers

Real good food and friendly service! Didnt get to go see animal but plan on going back!

Susanna Reese

The staff was very friendly and helpful and the buildings were very clean and well kept. The animals were engaged when we had carrots and I got to pet most of them. There was giraffe feeding and that was such an amazing experience! Prices were reasonable excluding the general store. Overall it was a wonderful, well spent morning.

John Williams

Service is excellent! Food was ok. For the money there are better places to eat. The attraction is its different abs they have cool animals in the farmer's market.

Christina Chavis

Food was well seasoned and delicious. Fried chicken was crispy yet juicy and so full of flavor. The mac-n-cheese and sweet potatoes were very creamy and fluffy. Strong drinks and everything is reasonably priced for the value. Beautiful scenery. Very clean. Quiet, calming, relaxing. The view of the bison, gazelle and other animals on premise from observation dining room was beautiful. Great experience. Will be back often

Michael Sierra

We came in after the game pisgah elementary school and they were about to to shut the buffet down but people were so nice to us and Treated us very nice no Complaints I highly recommend anyone to them will come back

Cameron Spann

Hands down, the most fun I've had near Jackson. If you're looking for a new and creative date, this is it. Lovely people, delicious food, and Watusi!

Mary Manuel

Great time and great breakfast!

Christy Beard

We went to the steak house. My husband ordered steak, grits and fries. The steak was dry and almost burnt on the outside, grits were thick and had no seasoning. I got shrimp and grits. It tasted like red beans and rice out of a box, and maybe with my food I expected more because a lot of my family is from south Louisiana. But you expect to have a nice meal when it costs $90 for 2 people. The only thing that was good was some cheese dip with pork rinds. It also took forever to get our food. I would go to long horn any day and me and my husband eat for $45-50 any day.

Daniel McDade

Top of the line food and service.

Tammy Brun

Today's lunch was delicious. Our group of 10 was seated promptly and service was great. Everyone loved the food, and enjoyed checking out all the beautiful items for sale. The kids especially enjoyed the baby kangaroo, the baby chicks and the baby mountain goats. We will definitely be back!!!

luke ferguson

McClain lodge is a great new place to try around Flowood. I’ve been to the buffet, the steakhouse and the bar and all the food has been great. The buffet has a nice selection of country food, but I wouldn’t go right after church cause it’s packed. The steakhouse has one of the best NY strip steaks I’ve had around here the only thing is it doesn’t come with any sides but you do get a small salad.

Ernest Rufus

Excellent food and accommodations. Thank you for making our family reunion/birthday/graduation/retirement gathering a huge success.

Jennipoo Williams

Nice relaxing place to visit kids love the animals

Steven Holman

Good food, lots of it, and the facility is astounding. The animals are neat, but they looked especially hot when we were there in June.

Chris Hobson

This was my 3rd visit to McLain's. The building is really nice. I keep trying to be impressed. But I'm not. I have tried the buffet twice. The chicken was chewy, the fish was terrible. Food was just not great. This is not worth $25. The burger ordered from the menu was burned. Not likely to return.

W.T. Hopkins

Buffet was good. “Steak restaurant” was overpriced for what you get.

Martha Ferguson

Great place to eat, shop AND SEE INTERESTING THINGS. I AM Looking forward to another visit to do the safari. I

Dena Sheppard

Fantastic atmosphere snd food!!!

Ken Gardner

After a number of enjoyable meals there, today's buffet was a disappointment. I was thinking on the 4th of July you would have something special. Arriving at 1130 to beat the crowd, I surprised that If a person doesn't like chicken, his option was a hot dog, which I could have had at home and saved quite a bit. Later around 12 after we had finished up, you put out some pulled pork. Guess the moral of the story is dont come before 12.

Shirley Mcclelland

Wasn't impressed. Ate buffet.

Joshua Brown

Food was delicious, but I expected more options from the buffet.

Laurie Lane

We had such a wonderful Birthday dinner for my son tonight. The staff was exceptional, and the food was fantastic!!!

D. B.

Good food, but not large variety of meat (fried and baked chicken).

sonia Grammar

Pretty good. Definitely worth checking out. Lots of employees and everyone was very nice. Husband had the buffet and I ordered off the menu. He said it was very good and I enjoyed my meal as well.

Wayne Boswell

Wasn't to impressed with the buffet on Sunday, was told we couldn't order off the menu, no waitress or waiter for about 15 minutes found out we could've ordered off the menu. Wouldn't recommend going on sundays..

Clayton Brigham

Very clean and all of the staff were curtious and helpful. The breakfast was hot and tasteful.

Keshia Willis

People are great food is very good

Lien Chuandao

My wife and I discovered this amazing place after moving to the area about a year ago. It's a bit hard to describe because there is so much good stuff here... it is MUCH more than general store and restaurant. They have an animal safari you can ride through which has both exotic and domestic animals, a petting zoo, a farmers market, a lodge where you can have events like weddings and retreats with guestrooms, kitchen etc., they have a small gun and hunting store, a small women's boutique, an awesome butcher shop and bakery and our favorites... the restaurants. We go to their country style buffet at least twice a month and their steakhouse and tavern are also great. By the way, the food they serve from vegetables to beef/ chicken / pork are all raised on the McClain spread, making the food just like you would get at your grandmothers house! My scales at home show how much I love eating at McClain unfortunately. In any case, it is hard to compact all the great experiences we have had this past year going to McClain. Our family loves this place as well due to many family events during the holidays. This is the place to go for any reason you can think of.

My first time eating at this establishment were enjoyable. I liked the whole setup. Some of the food items didn't look appealing so I didn't try them. Customer service were great. Mo

Great buffett The bbq chicken was a little dry The turnip geens werr a bit too salty as were the black eye peas. The okra and lima beans were great. The salad bar was fresh. The frued chicken was juicy and tasty. Souvenir cup is huge. Tea smooth.

From the star rating I expected better. The buffet not enough variety. Food mostly good. I wouldn't recommend yet. And more decorations are needed. It's full of nothing but wood everywhere add a little beauty.

McClain's was Awesome! We enjoyed it so much!

Good experience. The grounds are worth seeing. I'm not a fan of southern cooking so I will leave the food reviews to those who are.

Staff is friendly but the food wasn't great. The store is pretty cool. And the animals are neat. Would go their again if I needed feed or a unique gift, but not to eat.

Chef Amber Cotton

It was my first time at McClains on yesterday and I really enjoyed myself and I would like to go back with family or friends

A very unique establishment. Inside it reminds me of a cross between Cracker Barrel and Bass Pro Shop. The service was cheerful and attentive. There's a lot there I didn't get a chance to check out. The buffet was home style cooking and good but ordinary.

I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great meal every part of the restaurant is amazing the staff all running around helping busy cleaning taking care of the customers needs Buffet Buffet is extraordinary good. Don't forget about the General Store and the petting zoo or the Safari that is located on the backside of the building. And if you're on a budget you can come here and have a very good decent home cooked meal for a low price I recommend this two thumbs up

Rebecca Luther

Just wow! Great gifts and food market. Huge place, weekend buffet. Spiraled hams available for purchase looked amazing, fair prices. Happy hour in the interior bar (with TVs) discount on our wine till 6 or so I believe. You should call to confirm. The road there was being re-asphaulted so give yourself extra time. We were there Dec17, 2018

I've eaten here twice and I've got to say, both times were enjoyable. The second time, however, I could tell the staff was under an immense amount of stress from management. Management was obviously watching very closely. Regardless, the food, both times, and the service was fantastic and I would definitely visit again.

Great place to spend half a day or more. We had lunch, shopped, visited with the employees and owner. Some of us went on the safari. But all of us had a outstanding time. And the rain did not slow us down. Great place.
