Restaurant was opened in 1948! Homemade everything . Service was very attentive. Calming and relaxing experience for sure. For $19.48 I got the Southern fried chicken with all the trimmings. It was a steal for sure. Loved this place and would return.

Live piano player. Great decor, especially the new side of the place. Excellant menu choices. Kids and adults all loved what they got. Fish was amazing.

Same type of restaurant as Ruth Chris or Morton's. Service good and food good. Nothing special. Extensive wine list> Price point good.
