Reviews for Magic City Grill

Utterly phenomenal. Truly magical. Doubtlessly divine. Catfish - enough said. It was fried to order - perfect battering, saltiness, crispiness, fluffiness, temperature, portions, and appearance. The best fried catfish I've ever eaten. I was about to ask for tartar sauce - shame on me. Collards, dressing, and cornbread were also fantastic. Excellent taste, portions, and price. I will be back for the buffet next time.

I've been here a few times for the buffet and its always delish. Today I ordered a burger and was totally disappointed.. a frozen Burger patty and frozen fries are not what I expected from a soul food restaurant. The burger was mediocre at best and the fries were blah... not their best..

Tips: 1. Come on Sunday for the lunch buffet. Try to get there before the post church crowd gets there 2. Pay for your food, grab your plate, get food. Go sit down. Someone will come get your beverage order. 3. Don't be ashamed at the number of plates you consume, cus this is a buffet 4. The fried chicken is delicious. A lot of foods here are sugary so if you're insulin dependent, just be aware 5. Favorites-potato salad, creamed corn, fried chicken, fried fish (whiting?), full review
