This place is a throwback to when ashtrays were still on the table. Located literally in the Ft Myers Farmers market, everything is made the old fashioned way. Pies and cakes from scratch (dont pass on dessert!), fresh daily specials, and plenty of vegetables to...More

Only had lunch there two times, both were delicious. It is crowed at lunch so that tells you something about the place. Dinner type food, and plenty on a serving. Service was adequate but they were busy.

Delicious fried chicken and southern home cooking! Loved the cornbread and vegetables. Off the beaten path, but worth the trip.

This is a favorite restaurant for us because everything is home made, fresh, and delicious. Today BBQ Ribs were the Special and they were cold, burned, and flavorless. All else was good but avoid ribs.More

The farmers market has been around for 65 years and still never disappoints me and my family. Everything just melts in your mouth and you can't go wrong with anything you choose from off the menu. Fried chicken, prime rib, fried ribs, huge ham hocks,...More

Had breakfast this morning. Great selection of food, most under $10. Place is not fancy but the staff and food are great.
