From the slow cooked BBQ, to the corn fritters, to the homemade veggies (like grandma used to make), to the Bourbon Pecan Pie (seasonal), to the cobbler of the day, you can't get better homemade anywhere else. I live in Clearwater and drive the 30 -45 minute commute often and suffer gladly the Skyway Bridge toll just to savor the... More

This is a good place to forget about dieting and healthy eating - just enjoy the mouthwatering assortment of dishes the good cooks are dishing out. We were a party of four for dinner, tempted by the menu and the ratings. There was waiting involved, 20-25 minutes, but it was worth it. Very friendly service. Two of us had the... More

Went for lunch and we were pleasantly surprised!! Very reasonable. I had the grilled salmon and my husband had the ribs. Two sides included from a long list. We had baked beans and coleslaw. Everything was delicious!!!

She said no really everything is very good so I took her word and we ordered some. I got the pulled pork and my wife... More

This is definitely the place to eat if you're tired of the dreaded overcooked vegetable "medley". There are tons of tasty southern side dishes. Hard to choose only two! All fresh and hot. Pulled chicken and pork also good. Great selection of 80 craft beers too. Campy atmosphere.

Pulled pork was outstanding with real authentic old southern style and flavor along with the southern side dishes. My Corn Fritters and Corn Pudding were just wonderful. Loved the food. Service was so-so and no credit card s accepted. Otherwise, will definitely return!

From the moment we walked in with our party of 5 until we left it was nothing but rudeness From the whole staff. After we were seated the waitress came and was rushing us to order and we weren't ready yet. The waitress then comes to the table and yells are these all delegate checks. I looked at her she...
