Neat throw-back atmosphere with great service and friendly people. Went there for lunch and had shrimp and grits. Also had fried pickles...so good! Wanted caramel cake for dessert but they didn't have it that day. Very laid-back attitude and the food is homecooked and delicious....More

I love the vegetables and not many places have chicken livers. They are a little slow serving you but it's worth the wait. My grand kids love the chicken and waffles! And I think the wait staff is wonderful.

I loved the home made vegetables. Great selection, seasoned well. The corn bread in a pone was very good. MY friend had the chicken livers and enjoyed them too. The fried green tomato's were some of the best I have had. We will go back.

The food and decor are really great but the service can be lacking at certain times. The busiest times seem to be the times when they don't have enough people waiting tables. Also getting food to go can be a long wait too. Overall I...More

Okay, you pull up to a free standing building with a few Harley's in front. Go into the restaurant, there are momentos all over the walls, and not really all that appealing. I ordered the chicken and waffles and my daughter ordered a pork chop...More

We have visited numerous times ,and always great tasting food. Our favorite entree is the fried chicken, it truly tastes like my mother and grandmother used to fry up in their big iron skillet. Sides change, sometimes skillet fried potatoes(yum) or potato cakes,etc. We always...More
