My friend and I split the chicken fried steak dinner and it was enough for both of us. It came with a huge salad and we ordered sweet potato fries for our other side. It was delicious and the waitress was super friendly and efficient.

One side is cafe, the other is bar. We ate in the bar. Loved the dollar bills on the walls. Dinner salads were generous and good. My shrimp was so-so but beans and fries were good. Husband’s CFS was okay. Our waitress was tops.

We had a great visit and dining experience there. I couldn't eat the huge chicken fried steak so I took the rest home. After reheating it I was cutting the steak when I found a long black hair in the meat. I went to pull...More
