Used to be a good restaurant but the portions keep getting smaller and smaller and a new menu with higher prices comes out every summer. Food is OK but you could do a lot better. Pies are excellent though. Order a pie to go the day before.

Making a large variety and the best pies in town. Breakfast great but also the fried chicken. Come early to avoid the wait for the chicken is cooked fresh and very popular. Enjoy!

Excellent food just minutes away from Rainbow Springs SP. Everyone at our table tried the pot roast and loved it. Service is a little slow but worth the wait.

Nice little place not to far from ocala. Rustic look from the outside but good food, good size portions at a fair price. Do not leave without having a slice of one of their pies. We had their liver and onions, Cuban sandwich. Would recommend for good home cooked food.

Breakfast is wonderful it gets crowded so you might have to wait. Excellent eggs, pancakes, home frues. The cakes are home made, don't miss the chocolate cake, so are the pies!

If you love fried chicken, you will think you have died and gone to heaven. It is absolutely delicious...moist, juicy, and fried to perfection. The sides are great, especially the fried okra. There are many other country style entres available at very reasonable prices. Their pies are legendary in this part of Florida. Best of all, the prices are reasonable.... More
