Walking from one distillery to another we stopped over for a little snack. The place was packed so it had to be good. Really enjoyed my Big D. My wife's 'small' Greek Salad was more then sufficient. Friendly waitresses.

Vegetarian-friendly menu, indoor and outdoor seating, quick service, wide variety on menu, and good food! My husband had the mushroom reuben and I had a lentil burger and house-made ginger mint soda. A lovely little lunch spot.

Charming house/atmosphere, with indoor and outdoor seating. Inexpensive Southern style food. The butternut squash risotto was "to die for." The blackened Kentucky catfish and grits was also delicious!
