Good southern food, service was good, prices reasonable, What more could you ask for! I must say that I was surprised when the ask did you want more of your beverage to go. Great idea,as it was a hot day.

Steak was fresh and sides were ok. Very expensive for kids meals with only 2 small chicken fingers on it.

What a great variety of food to choose from, including your choice of meat and choice of 3 vegetables from a list of 20 to 30. And the fried chicken is awesome.

Stayed in Columbia, SC and needed to eat. Went here and was not disappointed. The service was quick, the food good. First time at this chain. Based on this visit I will eat there more often.

Interesting name but food wasn't great. French toast and biscuits and gravy simply not very tasty. I expected better.
