Mrs. Rowe's was recommended to us by a local. We went fully expecting good country (Southern) cooking and that is what we experienced. Both my wife and I had the pork tenderloin with gravy and greens. As it turns out, that is a specialty of...More

We had a variety of entrees. It was a pleasant atmosphere and the food was good at a reasonable price. We felt a bit rushed; the server was not very friendly. The pies were very good.

This place used to be great but now they take every Sysco shortcut imaginable. The vegetables taste canned and too many convenience foods are being used. If you doubt me look at the ingredient lists in the takeaway case.
