Really enjoyed the home cooked meal on a recent visit for breakfast. The service was friendly, the food was served hot and fresh all while keeping it in a family-friendly atmosphere.

We stopped by while on a camping trip at nearby Beaver Lake. We enjoyed chicken fried chicken and chicken fried steak. Portions were huge. There was a large selection of country vegetables along with hot yeast rolls, butter and honey. Wait staff was attentive.

Extensive menu of the best southern home cooked foods. Giant portions. Very reasonably priced. Great wait staff. Weird decor. Chicken fried chicken with gravy is incredible. Not great for your diet but great for your tastebuds!
