This place has good food but on down time you can hear the server talk about their personal ups and downs. Now I Love a little "tea" every now and then, but at the least make sure my glass is full before my ears.

Very good food and service. Country cooking and tastes great. I am a born and raised Southern girl taught to cook it up. This place reminds me of my Grandma's house on Sundays supper. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This place has very good country style food! They bring a basket of corn bread (which is amazing) and biscuits. I always get the chicken salad and fruit plate. The vegetable sides are always good!
