Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The chicken tenders were very good. The fried okra was a little overcooked. The strawberry cake was huge. The service was friendly. A little expensive for a lunch meal.

They give a super large plate of food. Stop here with church bus group and could only eat half my order of turkey and dressing. Got the large plate and should have gone with the small plate. All the food was good and serve was...good too. Had the banana pudding and loved the light whip cream topping. The turkey was real meat and not that pressed stuff. Good jobMore

Went with my daughter and son in law for a great dinner. While my daughter chose tte salad bar her husband and I both chose their southern fried chicken and veggies for sides. My chicken was moist and tte skin was crispy and yummy. I...had some really good macaroni and cheese and a delicious broccoli casserole while my son in law went for the collards and beans. The young lady who took care of our table was friendly and kept our iced tea glasses filled. She later offered us a small brownie with ice cream. Thst was a super treat; it was small and just the right size to fill that desire for a bit of sweet but not a huge dessert. We all enjoyed our food and yes we will be back.More

Yes, it's a short cafeteria style line, but the service is awesome! I had just chosen my fried chicken (white meat) and before I could choose my veggies a lsdy adjed by choice of beverage. I touched black eyed peas and mac and cheese with...a roll and a serving of coconut cake. The lady, who fixed my iced tea, came and took my tray at the cashier stand (all of that for just under $10) and carried it to a booth for ne She then brought me both lemon slices fir my tea and butter for my roll. My iced tea cup never ran dry and she checked on me throughout my lunch to make sure I had everything I needed. I was dining alibe so I had brought my Kindle so that I could read while I ate. My chicken was nice and crispy but still moist inside and it was seasoned well. Glad to see they used salt before frying because it makes a huge difference in the taste of the chicken. The oras were tasty and the mac and cheese had oodles of cheese in it. The roll was a roll, nothing special and I hate that they use the butter but most places do. I guess that because I use real butter at home I expect restaurants to do likewise. The coconut cake was delicious and very moist. This is a great place for real food When you want good homestyle, southern cooking, this is the place. Good food and great service at an exceptionally reasonable price. I will return.More

I read about this restaurant and decided to try it. What a wonderful surprise!! It's a cafeteria style meat and three and the veggies are very fresh and delicious! I tried the country fried steak with white gravy and it was yummy!! When we first...walked in they asked if this was our first visit and told us we would get a free slice of cake. What a huge slice! I took mine home and it fed three people. I'm not really a cake person but the cake was very light and moist and absolutely delicious! The staff is very friendly and attentive. They accept cash or credit cards but charge a small fee for using a credit card. There's a sign posted so you are aware of this beforehand. The location of this restaurant is not along 'restaurant row' but a destination location. If you haven't tried Laurenda's Family Restaurant give it a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed.More

During our pre-retirement exploratory trip we stopped in at Laurenda's. Those serving as well as the wait staff were very friendly.The fried chicken was great, very home cooked. being this was an exploratory trip I tried the collard greens because I've never had any. I...know they are not spinach but didn't know what to expect. I thought they were interesting bt good. I would recommend this place to family and friends if they should be traveling through GreerMore

You get to choose your meats and veggies, then if you like for a extra charge choose one of their deserts.

Yes, there is a private room. You would have to contact the restaurant to determine the cost, but I doubt there is a charge.
