This is always a go to. Very local feel. Really good home cooked entrees. A charming little clothing shop upstairs and homemade candies at check-out. Really a must when visiting Elizabethtown. Also, really good catering serving

We eat here every Wednesday as our night out. The staff is like family as we know them by name and they know us. Great atmosphere with service and food to match.

This is a quaint place located in an older house. Lots of ladies meet for lunch at this restaurant. Small portions and not a lot of variety.

I was so happy with my meal here. Everything tasted like my grandma had made it. The corn pudding was delicious, as well as the sweet potatoes, the soup beans, the cranberry salad, and everything else I ate. My only regret was that I did not have room for dessert. It was a little chilly in the back part of... More
