Seriously....this review shouldn't even be necessary. Someone has obviously bribed the local health department to allow this place to stay open, and the same person must have bribed a bunch of reviewers to say this was even FOOD. Greasy ribs that were served room temperature...More

Really, the only decent thing we ate that tasted OK was the baked potatoes. Oysters were nasty tasting and contained bits of shell, stuffed crab was tiny, and everything was generally tasteless and ultra greasy.

If you like whole catfish as I do, this is the plac to eat. They fry catfish as well as anyone in the south. Their hushpuppies and coleslaw are exelent. Their food is better than Top of the Riv and Catfish Cabin

Really intended to eat Labor Day BBQ elsewhere but they were closed. Glad we came on to Greenbriar. Nice BBQ chicken and chicken fingers plus awesome hush puppies and slaw. Country dining. Not fancy. Good eats.
