Due the holiday weekend, some restaurants were closed. Standing outside one of them, we asked some locals about where to find great Southern cuisine. Thus, they told us about Barbara''s. We had Odette as our server. She brought a sample of the chicken casserole before...More

Drove by and wasn’t going to stop...but read the reviews. The food is so so good. The banana pudding is worth the trip. All the desserts are very good. The meringue is just like your grandma made. Everything we had was good. Even a vegetarian...More

We read about Barbara’s great home cooking and I must say she certainly did not let us down. We ordered the poppyseed chicken at the recommendation of other patrons and boy was it good. The vegetables were also fresh and tasty. The setting was quaint...More

Under the old Ms. Barbara ownership, this place was great!! Very tasty, ample portions and quick and friendly service. Now that she sold the place - nothing is like that. The lady at the desk/cash register is just plain rude. No if ands or buts....More

In the trees is a little old house with a surprise inside. Barbara and her crew cook up good Southern style food (leave room for dessert) and before you know it, it's plated and placed before you w/lighthearted flair. The place is not fancy but...More
