The Bulloch House features a Southern buffet with country cooking. This restaurant is located just south of the town center of Warm Springs. It is in a house that is over 100 years old and has several rooms that are used as dining areas.

The mainstays of this buffet are fried chicken and fried green tomatoes. There are usually about four entrees that vary daily. These may include baked chicken and dressing, tender and delicious roast beef, chicken and dumplings, baked ham, catfish, tasty chicken livers, and other Southern favorites. If you don’t want the full buffet, ask about the blue plate special which is available for lunch from Monday to Friday. Lots of good vegetables are available at the buffet that may include yummy creamed potatoes, lima beans, carrot soufflé, field peas, fried apples, black-eyed peas, green beans, etc.

There is a small salad bar at the end of the buffet line. Even if you don’t have room for a salad, there usually are sliced tomatoes available at the salad bar which you can get as a side vegetable. The biscuits have a good, old-fashioned taste. Desserts are not included as part of the buffet and must be ordered from the waitress. All are homemade including caramel layer cake, red velvet cake, slices of pie, and more.

There were some transition issues after the original owners sold the restaurant and the restaurant was closed for a brief period. But in March 2011, Peter and Sandy Lampert purchased the Bulloch House. They have done an excellent job of continuing the Southern traditions that made the Bulloch House a favorite destination for locals and tourists alike.

The town of Warm Springs is a historical attraction because of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. He came here often for medical treatments. His retreat was known as the Little White House and this is where he died in 1945.

Note: The Bulloch House is open for lunch seven days a week, but in the evening it is open only on Friday and Saturday. Dinner on Friday features seafood.

About once a month we drive down to the Bulloch House Restaurant for lunch. I am a very picky eater and try to eat healthy; for me this means vegetables and lean meat.

The Bulloch House buffet changes daily, but they always have fried chicken and it is always moist and tender. Their vegetables are fresh-tasting, never soggy like at so many other buffets. We have never had a meal that was less than superb.

My favorites, besides the fried chicken, are the fried apples with their signature stewed tomatoes over them, the squash dish, beans, and sweet potato souffle. Love the liver, too. The rest of my family digs into the fried green tomatoes and homemade biscuits.

Their desserts are very popular and the few times I've let myself indulge I haven't been disappointed. We've purchased a few of their frozen entrees and served them at home for company.

The house itself is adorable (at least 100 years old I'd have to guess) and there are a variety of different rooms in which to sit and eat. I highly recommend the Bulloch House.

I had read the reviews and went to this eating establishment with trepidation. It is a beautiful old house that has been added onto. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. The food was GREAT!

The fried green tomatoes were crisp, as was the fried chicken and the chicken livers. The vegetables were like grandma made and plentiful. The sweet tomato condiment was awesome! You must at least try some. My mother-in-law said it reminded her of something her mother use to make.

I really enjoyed this restaurant and would go back again and even go out of my way.

The location, and the antebellum home the restaurant is located in, are wonderful, very similar to the Blue Willow in Social Circle, GA. After seeing several great reviews, we were expecting good food. Boy were we wrong.

According to the locals, there was a change in management/ownership in March 2011, and it shows. My wife and I went at 6pm on a Friday night. We expected it to be packed, yet there were only three cars in the parking lot! The hostess was courteous and friendly, and the interior of the restaurant/house was magnificent.

The buffet was lacking the variety we expected. The fried chicken is not crispy; it has a soft, mushy texture, as do the fried green tomatoes (this is because it is a buffet, and these items sit out a while). The macaroni and cheese is a bit stiff and dry. The banana pudding (for extra cost), however, is delicious.

Still, it's way overpriced for what you get. Frankly, any Golden Corral would beat the quality and variety of this buffet. But if you want to be surrounded by, and immersed in the atmosphere of, a true southern antebellum home, this is the place. If you actually want a good meal, try Oscars: it's only a few miles down the road and has far better food, a wonderful menu, good prices, and great fried green tomatoes. We went there the second night we were in Warm Springs and wished we had gone there first.
