Locally owned and operated. It's all family working in the restaurant. The gravy is homemade and amazing. The dining experience is all family style, at long picnic tables so you are always apt to meet new friends. Biscuits and gravy, and cottage fries and gravy is delicious. It is always crowded, busy and fun.

We were anxious to try this restaurant for lunch based on reviews and it being a sort of hole in the wall type place. It's a small location but we liked the simplicity. It was quite busy at around 11am with limited seating. Our waitress was friendly and promptly got our drinks and orders. The menu has a good amount... More

It wasn't my first choice for breakfast but my friend wanted to go. It's a very small establishment in a not so fancy part of town. Now I know why people love it there. It has a small counter & only picnic tables with benches. You may have to eat with strangers. The portions are huge & the prices are... More

Great place to meet new people. Better ask for a menu because the locals don't need them. Or just trust me and get a half-order of biscuits OR potatoes and... More

We were in Punta Gordo over Easter and this is a favorite place my aunt likes for breakfast. She lives in Punta Gordo and introduced us to the Smokehouse last November. The breakfast options are many and the servings are huge. Everything from biscuits & gravy, to fried potatoes with gravy to eggs, sausage, gravy....it's all delicious. Be sure to... More

They have the best sausage gravy in SWFL. Therefore, you can have it on biscuits, potatoes, or grits and add eggs, hot sauce or just a fork. They do regular breakfast items also.
