A local place that is full of folks at mealtime. Close to a diner as you can get. Breakfast lunch and dinner. French toast, omelettes, waffles, hot cakes, sandwiches, soups, salads, are all tasty. Catfish,shrimp, flounder, wings, pork chops, liver and onions. Pies and great cakes. Go hungry! Very good service. Like mom cooked. Enjoy,

I have had breakfast and lunch there. It's hard to decide what's best but you can get breakfast all day so you have options. I love the chicken n' waffles. For lunch I had salmon with a salad. The salmon was grilled to perfection and the salad was fresh and large. Their house dressing is called Granny's and it's delicious.... More

After two grueling days on the road from North Jersey, we stopped In Kingsland for the night. Although our hotel provided coupons for chain restaurants that were walking distance, we opted for Southern cooking and boy, am I glad we did! We started with fried green tomatoes -- nine large slices fried to perfection, accompanied by home-made ranch dressing. I... More

Stopped in for breakfast traveling from St. Mary's to Fernandina Beach & Amelia Island. Quaint old Diner. Still looks like the before pictures. Stays busy with the locals and travelers. My husband had the special; 2 eggs, bacon, rye toast and coffee. He said it was good and he loves their coffee. I had the French toast and it was... More

It is located on US 17, about 1 mile south of the intersection of US 17 and GA Hwy 40. The menu features local seafood (shrimp and... More

Just had lunch there for the second time last year. A local landmark offering excellent southern food. The fried chicken, fried green tomatoes and home made onion rings are exceptional and the servings are very generous.

Visiting area and found this diner on TripAdvisor. The diner is clean and the food was very good . The service was slow but very friendly. Breakfast is served all day, and they have many lunch and vegetable choices. The plus for us was that we could park our motorhome there and it was only a couple miles from I95.

These folks warmly greet you, tell you to seat yourself and immediately come by with menus and utensils. They serve fresh caught & farm fresh foods carefully fried in a delicate coating that doesn't overwhelm the fish, veggies or chicken livers or make the food greasy. We ordered fried shrimp, squash, mushrooms, onion rings, chicken liver and sweet potato fries.... More
