I’m not ashamed to say I like AYCE buffets. Especially at breakfast, where I often find my plate full of a half dozen different processed pork breakfast meats and little else. But I also like seafood buffets, and I stumbled into a doozy in Southern Mississippi, 12 miles south of the State Capital on Highway 49.
I suspect Berry’s Seafood and Catfish House has been around forever, but in Florence (they have one other location), they are in obviously new and massive digs.
There are “hot bars” and “cold bars,” with fried and boiled shrimp, fried and broiled or blackened catfish, and everything in between, including beautiful salads and desserts. Fried chicken, too. More detail on the lunchtime menu can be found right here’ya. Lunch and dinner are slightly different prices, but count on around $30 for two persons.
Special nights add crab legs to the buffet, and an ala carte menu, which includes steaks and sandwiches, is available for lighter eaters.
There’s no alcohol available, and the dozen or so large screen TVs are generally blaring religious music and messages – just sayin’, if that kind of thing is not your cup of tea.
As for me? Did somebody say all you can eat catfish? I’d put up with karaoke for that!
