Donna’s has a fantastic lunch buffet! I am a pretty picky eater, but the meatloaf and fried chicken are wonderful! The vegetables are fresh and very tasty. The wet coconut cake melts in your mouth!! Awesome place to eat!

Not my idea of old town country cooking. However, everyone's opinion is different and I know a lot of people that love the restaurant. Maybe we were there on a "off day". I thought it was a bit pricey for the quality of the food.
