You can sit inside at the bar and watch how wonderfully this kitchen team works together, or outside under the marquee/ tent which is more open depending on the weather. The food here is really good. I like the oyster po boy myself but my husband raves about the spicy friend chicken. Their sides are good normally but we have... More

Iconic! Review a compendium of a South Georgian, Savannahan, Charlestonian, and Nashvillian---all foodies with knowledge of Southern fare. Wait time was estimated to be 45 min but we were seated inside in 15 at high noon on a Saturday. Real Dr Pepper in the retro-bottle set the stage for an amazing lunch. The fried chicken on a waffle was to... More

The ambiance, the brisket, the oyster sandwich and the farmhouse ale. My kind of place! It's trully worth the drive if you're in the area. Ask for Lex, she's the coolest.

Not sure where to start but you must eat here. It's located in the rolling hills of Sonoma, it's a little bit of a dive (if you read my reviews that is the highest praise I can give, love dives), the waiter was quirky and funny and the food was off the hook! To start, on their picnic tables is... More

Stopped for lunch. Service was a bit did-jointed but ok. Food was very good. Wait time was not bad. So overall nice little different place. Felt more like I was in rural Arizona or Nevada than wine country.

We visited here last October and the year before. On each occasion, they got the order for one of us wrong ... the service was hectic ... the toast was chilly ... and the restaurant drafty. It must be the only diner in America that doesn't have hash browns (or something close to it). The prices are way too high,... More

OMG! This food is awesome! Went at lunch and waited only about 5 minutes though there were people waiting in the parking area outside the restaurant. Drinks are served in mason jars and wine in a jelly jar. We shared the Deviled Eggs w/pickled mustard seeds & 7 herbs, Brussel Sprouts, and The Fremont Burger: 5 oz patty ground in... More

If you are within 50 miles of this fabulous diner you must carve out the time to go there. Make it a destination and you will be so happy you did. Expect some lines as this diner is so popular because it is worth any wait. Once you get your table (or if lucky like us, a seat at the... More
