Awesome view and delicious, generous food!!! The stuffed baked potato was huge and cooked to perfection. Fresh fried green tomatoes just like Mimas’! A place to call your secret spot in the area.

This was recommended by Hampton. With very few choices in the area, we headed over. Seems like a lot of locals dining here. I had salad while husband had BBQ. We both enjoyed our meals. Best thing is that it was close to the hotel.
