We came here hungry and service was fast and very good. The BBQ sauce isn't quite what we are used to but maybe that's a local style. We tried a variety off the menu. The favorites were the catfish, corn pudding, and key lime pie.

Ate dinner and the atmosphere and food were very good and the price is reasonable. It took a little longer to get our food than I expected, but service was overall good.

We also go straight to Calhouns to enjoy some Mountain Light beer (34 oz size), some pretzels with beer cheese, a great salad and an Ale Steak. The food and service are always great and consistent.
