Shelly, Thank you so much. We have Gospel Music every Sunday from 11-1. They do rock the house. You can ask to be seated on the porch a little further away from the Music. We do appreciate you.

It had been a few years since visiting Threadgills and I was disappointed with the quality of food at dinner. Service was good and the food delivered in a timely manner. Food was average.

We like to eat here after attending downtown events. The food is excellent and has a nice variety. The service is usually good as long as the place isn't crowded.
