Loved the food and the band rocked. The hostess was a bit pushy. I understand the preferred 2 hour dining experience guidance, but we can only go as fast as the service.

We made reservations for 2:00 pm for a Birthday Party of 6, and we did not get seated until 3:30 pm. It appears reservations aren't held as we and a few other parties that had reserved seating all had to wait to until other patrons were done eating. The hostess was rude, tacky, short and frustrated with us for asking when we would be seated. I did not see a manager in sight as other people were frustrated as well.
The food was cold and had been sitting for quite sometime. Our waitress on the other hand was great. This experience left us all extremely angry and frustrated, and sadly we will not be back.

We had a very good time. Our visit was a "First Time Date". The food was excellent, service was good, the only downfall was we were seated in front row tables across from the band. Being it was a date we had a hard time hearing each other. After dinner we moved to the bar area and continued our night their and it was a good choice to move instead of leaving Buttons. :)

Obviously a family business which lacked some of the details focusing on Customer Service.
Food was Amazing. After checking in had to remind host that my party of 2 was still waiting to be seated. Table was not prepared; however the Server did go out of his to way to explain and accommodate. Seating was congested and not suitable for all parties to observe live entertainment or enjoy the meal with being bumped into when customers and staffed passed. Had to request silverware twice. There was not enough printed drink menus, which was passed around to several times without being wiped down, especially during this season. Cornbread arrived several minutes after the entrees. “I don’t get that I want my entire order at one time.” The House Rules of Business Casual dress code was not enforced and In this environment I had to witness “sagging” faded blue jeans with athletic shoes. I enjoyed what I could see of the live entertainment. It’s a 60% to 40% that I will return.

The good was delicious but I was disappointed with the service.we were seated promptly because we had a reservation,but once seated no one came to take our orders,after about thirty minutes we grabbed a server and she attented to us.we were on the opposite side of band and the music could've been a little bit louder it would've been a perfect night.The band from Africa was awesome.

Went there for Thanks giving hoping for a special experience. We got one but a bad one. Food was missing and what was there was mediocre at best. Plates were gone and surly staff was not interested in keeping anything stocked. We had to ask for silverware, plates, drinks, and even food. Dessert was not from scratch for sure. Our waitress sat with another table and ignored our needs right across from us. We paid almost $200 for something that would have been better at Golden Corral at half the cost. So disappointed and feeling foolish and ripped off. Never again. Maybe partly because we were there at 6 but we paid the same as those there at noon so we should get the same service.

Delicious food for our family Thanksgiving meal. No live music during our visit but the gumbo was delicious! Everyone enjoyed their food. The girls loved the Mac & Cheese and the tasty desserts. Prime Rib and the black eyed peas were the husbands favorite.

My husband and I went for Thanksgiving 2017. Didn't know what to expect because it was buffet style however the food was great; the servers were great; very enjoyable; If I had 1 complaint, I would say that the serving line was too long bc it wasn't on both sides. Because of the long line, areas were blocked (with people), but other than that, it was great.

Totally let down. I was expecting live music and there was none. Since it’s Thanksgiving, I was expecting a more elegant setup. The place was so crammed with tables that the entire time I had someone hitting my chair trying to pass through. The buffet was more diner food. I won’t be coming back. I was so disappointed.

I've been to Buttons for lunch and dinner several times, but this time it was a disappointment. I think they lowered the quality of the food for the Thanksgiving buffet due to the sheer amount of people they were trying to feed. I will be back--not for a holiday meal--but for their Sunday brunch. Their chicken and waffles are the best!

Visited for Thanksgiving brunch. Cream corn was beyond excellent and our waitress Noka? provided the most attentive service we have ever experienced. We were greeted by a very welcoming hostess. Unfortunately, the turkey was not a carving off a whole turkey. Instead it was sliced turkey loaf in a pan and overcooked prime rib was the carving option. Drink prices were very reasonable and atmosphere was upbeat. Manager did stop by our table to make sure we were ok. Our let down was our own fault because we did not make our annual reservation at the Gaylord Texan brunch early enough.

Love love Buttons! My sister and niece were in town and I wanted to take them to a special place for brunch. Wow did Buttons fit the bill!! The buffet was fabulous with items ranging from breakfast to dinner. Catfish, jambalaya, French toast, roasted chicken, yummy desserts. Our server was so friendly and attentive but the favorite part?? Wanda the hostess with the mostest. You get the best hug of your life, a beautiful smile and full attention. She just makes your day. Go here as quickly as possible!
