Buffet time! I knew about this place since moving to the metro area. Apparently this is one of the very few places that offers a crab leg buffet (although advertised a max of 4 clusters per person! ).But I came instead for a breakfast buffet with a meetup group. You pay first then eat. I suggest going to the omelette station first because the line gets really long. Also make reservations. It tends to get packed most of the time. Bonus: complimentary mimosas! Who's gonna turn that down?! Two thumbs up! More...

Go often and had a variety of different themed buffets. It never disappoints! The Saturday brunch buffet is definitely best south of Atlanta.

I just came back from Atlanta, and I'm still full from brunch. The quality of food was excellent. It reminded me of H's Lordship's in Berkeley, but better before it closed. I loaded my plates with omelets made to order, eggs benedict, shrimp in the shell, hella grits, and the roast beef that was waiting for me after everything was said and done. The staff was friendly and gave excellent service. I will definitely visit again when I come back to the city. More...

Truly a hidden gem nestled in the middle of the Pinewood Studio compound. Our waitress was very attentive, other staff were friendly and the food was delicious! There was a pianist who sang a variety of songs and then she made special shoutouts for people celebrating special occasions. If you're ever  on this side of town be sure to check them out. More...

Came here for a birthday lunch.. Its buffet style. The food was good. They have music in the evenings. We didn't have to have a reservation. We did get buy one get one half off. You pay when you ehter. Then you are seated. The selection was wide array of meats including steak..crab legs shrimp. Very good.. And plenty of veggies. We also able to get a pour of Wine to go with our meal.  And the vwaitress even bought me over desserts for my birthday..by that time i was stuffed but i still sampled it. Located in North Fayetteville its quite a drive. But it was worth it. Signed up for email alerts. They are always having Specials and Brunches going on. I would love to come in the evening and enjoy some live music. More...

This is one of my favorite places to go. I feel so fancy when I go here. The café is located in a renovated elementary school across the street from Pinewood Studios which is the headquarters to marvel movies. I feel almost like a movie star when I go in there. Maybe it has something to do with the movie ambience. The cafeteria in the renovated elementary school is a wonderland of amazement. You don't even realize that you're in the cafeteria. It feels like a restaurant. The music that they provide there during dinner is so relaxing, and the food there is hands-down the tastiest in town. It's a must go for a date, or a family gathering.

My family and I enjoyed our delicious brunch here today! My 15 year old son commented on the friendly staff, variety of tastey food options and the nice atmosphere. He and I spoke with the manager and Joe Hanna and shared our amazing dining experience. We love this place and are pleased with the meal/menu options. More...

Of course seeing that it's buffet style you have the opportunity to get up and go for seconds. The food was pretty good; however it was very crowded and the tables were close together making it tight to maneuver around. I wouldn't suggest going here if you're looking for something quiet and intimate. Not bad overall though! More...

I had an excellent brunch here! Make reservations, because it's busy, and rightfully so. They have omelet, carving and waffle stations aside from the buffet. All of the condiments, drinks and juices you could want. Everything I had was tasty and fresh. Brunch comes with either two mimosas or glasses of orange juice. Very nice atmosphere, and service was pleasant. Price was very good for what was offered. I'd definitely go again. More...

My husband and I visited for the 1st time for our Anniversary and it was everything that we'd been hearing. The food was great! Not your typical buffet, as Hanna Bro's puts a classy twist on "buffet" eating. There was just enough selections for everyone to find their favorite dish. A little on the pricey side but worth it. We've already made reservations to go back! More...

This place is a hidden restaurant in the South side. Very cool place for a romantic date. The outside of this place look like a school but when you walked in, you'll be impressed by the elegance music and environment. I went on a Friday night with their buffet special. I went bc of the unlimited crab legs and shrimps. About $32 bucks. More...

Good food for the value. We have been there twice...once for lunch and once for Easter Sunday brunch. The lunch was exceptional and the brunch average. The omelette/waffle station was on one side with it's own line with another line in the other side that had several breakfast items on it (bacon, sausage,etc). This meant unless you had another member of your party on the other line your breakfast may be incomplete. The prime rib while very tasty had too much fat.The lunch was fabulous with great steak (filet) and lobster tail. The shrimp was also very good. More...

Hubby & I were invited to celebrate a friends birthday this past Saturday.We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in.  There was live music and a beautiful ambience .This was a large party of 40 people and our customer service was very good.PROS*The food was delicious.  OMG - the stuffed shrimp was amazingly delicious.  Everything that I ate was tasty.  *Service*Ambience *Parking (plenty of parking and no cost to park)*Clean Restroom *Venue You pay as soon as you enter.  My initial thought was "damn this is an expensive dinner to be a buffet".  Once I saw all they have to offer and how good the food is, I was more than pleased.  I will definitely go again and sure hope those yummy stuffed shrimp are on the menu.

It never fails. Come with your fat pants on. I've never been disappointed ever. I can't comment on one specific food because their options change and are many. The staff is always friendly and goes above and beyond. They are very reasonably priced for the lunches, when we usually go, and the food is fresh and fabulous. Definitely try Hanna Brothers. In addition to wearing your fat pants, I'd starve before I head over because you will want to eat a lot. More...

This is one of the only buffet places I will willingly go to. The choices are always delicious and they offer healthy options for those who are watching their weight. I've been to the Studio Cafe for lunch and Saturday brunch and have no complaints. The staff is friendly and the food tastes fresh. The buffet is more pricey than regular restaurants but the quality is outstanding so it's worth it! I would recommend making a reservation in advance to reduce the wait time. More...

These folks know how to put on a spread! From breakfast to lunch to the big seafood dinner specials, everything is well-prepared and delicious. I have never been disappointed, even once. If you haven't tried the dinner, make sure to get a reservation. They do book up sometimes because it's really special. Mainly for the crab legs! More...

One of the best brunches in Atlanta. The ambiance is great, the food is even better & the Mimosas put the icing on the cake. Also the prices are really reasonable. I, along with my family, will be returning. More...

This was our second time dining here. The first time it was just the two of us. The wait time was only 10 minutes. The second time was a group of 9. Unfortunately, we did not have reservations. Therefore, the wait time was nearly 2 hours--not they're fault, but the wait was the only drawback.If you're going to dine here, I highly recommend making reservations.The food is amazing!!! Even though we had a long wait, the line was still fresh and plentiful as if they had just opened--not picked over. The BANANAS FOSTERS was to die for!!! Some say it's too pricey, but it is well worth it!!!The quality is second to none. Great food! Great service!! Great music and ambiance!!Best kept secret of the south!! More...

Always have a good time when we come for the crab leg buffet. The hosts and staff are typically very pleasant and efficient at their jobs. The food is a high quality and delicious. Many different options on different days of the week. Definitely recommend this spot for a lunch with friends or a partner. More...

I had a private business event here tonight.  The customer service was great, the atmosphere was relaxing, fun and eventful.  This place looks way better than the other posts I saw.  Even though it's supposed to be a cafeteria, it was a nice atmosphere, it looks nice enough for a date night (seven though I'm not dating right now lol ‍).  They have multiple options on different days so that's nice (I love change and spontaneity, lol this sounds like I'm making a post for a dating website ).  Overall, I would love to visit this place again.  The salmon was delicious, the potatoes were season led to perfection and the veggie mix was delicious, especially when paired with a red wine.

What a nice surprised. Let Me start by saying that the customer service was great; from start to finished.  The ambiance was nice and not to mention the live music. The food was amazing; hot and visually pleasing. The buffet was clean and neat. I have a family of 5, which means it is a little pricey, but well worth every penny. I've been here twice with my family and both times were great. I will be back. More...

This is the closest you will get to a Las Vegas buffet without having to go to Vegas!  The atmosphere is super chill and the decor is upscale. We came on a Friday which is seafood day! We had salad, peach iced tea (my FAVORITE) Mac and cheese, grilled veggies, snow crab legs and shrimp. Everything tasted very fresh with high end ingredients. The wait staff was very attesting taking our plates quickly after we finished. Jim Hana stopped by to ask us how we were doing which I really thought was great! The entire restaurant is well ran and tasted great! I can't wait to return for brunch!! More...

This is a hidden gem about 30 minutes south of Atlanta. I'm sure this place was created for the studio employees in mind, but it is open to the public and is a very good deal for what you get. It is buffet style and they feature different things different days of the week. They do have brunch on the weekend. The location is in an old school which works because the cafeteria set up is still in play.It is a very casual atmosphere so don't go dressed for your typical brunch on a Saturday or Sunday. Prices are fairly decent (approximately 15-20 dollars) so if you're willing to make the drive, it's worth it. More...

Second visit for dinner was nice, seafood and steak are welcome on my plate just about anytime. The live jazz band was a very nice added touch. They covered the smooth R&B hits from the 80's till now. Crab legs, (huge) peel and eat shrimp, corn cob, garlic mashed potatoes, Mac and cheese, angus steak, yellow rice, dinner rolls, and a caesar salad was about all I could handle this evening. I'm stuffed to the seams as I sit here writing this review. Dinner for two 80$ with tip. A little high for buffet style if you ask me but I digress. The only complaint for this visit is that it was COLD... teeth chattering cold!  I understand they try keep it cold to keep greedy people from staying all day trying to eat more than their fill...BUT... you still have to make it an enjoyable dining experience for your regular guests. Cool laid back atmosphere in the school cafeteria... COOL! More...

This is definitely a nice hidden secret. I was disappointed at first and then pleasantly surprised. I was invited to a friends birthday dinner so I was dressed up nicely and had heels on thinking we were going to a fancy place and quickly realized it wasn't that type of atmosphere , however I absolutely enjoyed my food and the time we spent there . I just wish I had dressed differently. When you get there, it looks like an elementary or middle school and the dining area looks to be inside of what would have been a gym or cafeteria. They made the decor really nice so it didn't feel that way. I am not sure of the daily menu or pricing but the night we went it was $30 to eat and it was a buffet! I was very surprised to find out it was a buffet.We were given cups to get unlimited drinks if you decided you wanted one. After you were seated, you were free to go and get food or drinks. They had a full bar to purchase drinks and a really great selection of soft drinks and teas/lemonades. The lemonade was really good. For food they had so many good options. Fish, chicken, veggies, Mac n cheese, bread rolls, pastas, rice, salad bar, dessert bar, they even had a seafood bar with crab legs and shrimp ! I really enjoyed the food and the service there , however just note don't wear anything too upscale or uncomfortable , carrying a tray full of food in heels up and down stairs became a bit of a task getting back and forth to my seat.

Came to The Studio the Saturday before Mother's Fay. We arrived about 15 minutes before the doors opened and the line was wrapped around the corner. Once the doors opened, they got everyone in very timely. The food was great and each person had complimentary mimosas. We will definitely come back! More...

Thoroughly enjoyed myself. The venue caught me off guard as this is a refurbished high school cafeteria. However, the decor and the lighting made it a very, very nice venue. The food was excellent. I tried everything on the bar and it was great. A saxophonist performed during dinner and sound amazing. The cost of the dinner bar is $27 per person and $5 for fountain drinks. There are no waiters but for the price of the meal I would have liked to have been served. I will be back. More...

When we walked in, there was a two hour wait so we knew it was popular. Based on the reviews, we waited and it only ended up being maybe an hour. The food selection is pretty awesome for the price point. The environment is different as it is a converted elementary school cafeteria: you pre-pay as you walk in, you walk through a double-sided Steamline with a tray. But the quality of the shrimp, crab, and steaks were good. We will probably return. More...

I went on a Friday, for lunch buffet and was not disappointed. A good variety of dishes, steak, fried fish, salads and all you can eat snow crab legs, just like I like them. A variety of deserts, if you save " space". I tried to make a reservation for party of six, but unable to reach, we had a long wait before being seated. Smaller parties came and were seated before we were.  Will return soon. More...

First of all this is a hidden gem in the Tyrone Area! My wife and I can across this spot on an invited from some family friends celebrating a birthday. I'm not really into the buffet style set up, but this was a tad bit different. The food that was hitting the line was quality and they were switching it out about every 10 mins. That's a huge plus for me because it's nothing like food sitting on the burner, with everyone and their mama picking over it. They had a create your own omelette station and a waffle station. They serve mimosas which is an added bonus and the price point is right coming in right under 18 bucks. I would definitely make a reservation prior to coming. It gets packed on the weekends. More...

This lovely gem is located in the Pinewood Studio complex. It's near the hospital which is why we passed by. It's almost easy to miss but there is a sign to let you know you are in the right place. It's a buffet style eatery with excellent customer service. The food was definitely tasty and they have several types of tea and lemonade available (I love the variety). The day we visited they were serving meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans, fish and chips and rice & basil. They seasoned everything perfectly!! I really was full after the first plate but you gotta go back for seconds lol! This is a secret hidden gem in Fayetteville that I would definitely recommend to others visiting the area. More...

Sorry that the photo is at the end of my meal, LOL. But that is a great indication to you Of how good the brunch is here. We had come before for dinner, a seafood buffet, and it was average, however, they have done a much better job with the Saturday brunch uffet . There is everything from salad including Greek, fruit, and traditional salad with an assortment of dressings, breakfast sides include hashbrowns, grits, gravy and biscuits, bacon, chicken sausages, Fried flounder, fried fish, steaks,and others. The assortment of breakfast desserts are amazing, my husband and stepdaughter raved about the cinnamon rolls. There is also both a waffle and pancake bar as well as an omelette bar. Each table comes with two paid bottomless Mimosa orders. They were actually quite good! I would recommend this to other locals. More...

Went on Friday night to Hanna Bros Studio Café (seafood night}and had a good meal .Sautéed Grouper, Filet Mignon nuggets, Boiled Shrimp, Poached Lobster Tails, Snow Crab . .all for $27 ..cant beat it. They need to be a little more generous with the Shrimp per pass so I don't have to go back 3 or 4 times. All the food above was delicious. More...

This place is truly a hidden gem.  We were met with smiling faces and the hostess walked us to our table. We had reservation for our party of seven. She explained to us what to do next and said if we had any more questions she would be glad to help us. The food was Amazing and several choices of salads, vegetables, meats and desserts.The crab legs and lobster tails was fresh and sweet. It was well work the drive and price. I gave this place 5 stars. The piano player was amazing non stop playing ! Hanna Brothers Studio Cafe is Great! Try this place you will not regret it! More...

The Food is AMAZING!  Open for breakfast 7-9:30a.m., the breakfast reminds me of a place that you take your mother to for Mothers Day, the spread is exceptional, but the cost is affordable that you can come daily if you wanted. Lunch 11-2, dinners (Fridays only) 5:30-8:30.  Live entertainment, a bar that serves Exceptional drinks, there sangria was delicious!  I heard they have an Executive Chef, you can tell by the quality of food and the superb taste.  Hidden gem.

I came here for lunch with colleages and was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. The decor was nice from  what I heard it used to be. The lunch buffet was around $13; their was much variety. The shrimp scampi was jumbo and yummy. The chicken and mushroom breast was so good. Even the broccoli was tasty. All 4 of us left very satisfied.  Plenty of parking.  I think ill return on Friday since I hear they do all you can eat crab legs  on their buffet.The staff was very helpful and made sure to keep your table clear of finished plates. I'm excited to return soon! More...

Wonderful lunch! One of the best lunch buffets I have had. A hidden gem in this area. For $12.50 + tax a wonderful salad bar, Wonderful vegetables and tasty meats.  Today the was shrimp scampi, Parmesan crusted scallops, blackened chicken, and antipasto bar with dessert and coffee and tea.  Soft drinks are extra.  The lunch is in a remodeled school cafeteria.  There is plenty of seating.  Friday's the meals are higher due to crab legs and other premium dishes (5 more I think).  Try this place.  You pay the same at some of greasy spoon places but the food here can't be touched!

There's a hidden gem located on the Pinewood Studios campus that is open to the public. It's the Pinewood Cafe (Hanna Bros Catering), housed in a former school building at the corner of Sandy Creek and Veterans Parkway, across the street from the sound stages. You are required to sign in with security in order to obtain a visitor pass to the facility. (No ID needed.)For only $13.25, including tax, you have access to the buffet lunch, which includes your choice of entrees and sides, along with a salad bar and a dessert. (Salad bar only is a lower-priced option.) The Cafe opens at 11:30 am, and the friendly folks running the place will welcome you and take your drink order. The day I visited, Sandra and Christy were on hand to offer water, sweet and unsweetened ice tea, and lemonade. Seating is cafeteria style on large tables. You pay first, and then help yourself to the buffet. The staff will also bus plates, and bring dessert to your table.The food is really great for the price. While the menu changes often, I enjoyed a delicious, fresh grouper entree over wilted kale and asparagus with hollandaise sauce, along with a plate of GF steamed vegetables Chef Joe Hanna was kind enough to prepare once he learned of my food allergy. I was told there's usually at least one GF entree option served each day. You can sign up for their email program to receive updated menus so you know what's being served.Pinewood Cafe takes most major credit cards (except AmEx) and requests cash tips only to be left at the table. You may even spot a celebrity or two. More...
