I'm flabbergasted this restaurant has any reviews above poor. I went in tonight and ordered popcorn catfish with mashed potatoes and corn bread. First off, everything was lukewarm at best. The popcorn catfish was NASTY - could not eat it. It left a bad taste...More

Three couples came here this week for a late lunch. It was 1:30 but they still had a pretty good lunch crowd. We all ordered something different and liked our food. The only complaint I would have is two of the people in our group...More
