We had been going to eat lunch at this long time place in the gritty Millville area of Panama City for some time. Today, we finally made it. The building is an old (over 100 years) storefront with a rusty tin roof along the front. The menu is mostly soup and sandwiches. I ordered a reuben which was very good,... More

Small, quaint little place with a warm welcome, great service and the food was wonderful. We'll definitely go back to try some other menu choices. Everything- smoked turkey sandwich, potato salad, and the peanut butter pie - was fresh and delicious.

Fora small restaurant, it is definitely a good place to eat. The food is really good and decently priced. The soups are good if you are a soup person. The deserts are really nice too. If you don't know what deserts you want you can ask and they will bring the dessert tray which has a sample of everything so... More

Quaint little restaurant located in Millville. Big selection of house made sandwiches and salads plus wonderful desserts, Simple, down-home recipes that make a filling lunch. I recommend their pasta salad as your side. Folks rave about the potato soup; it was fine in my opinion but nothing amazing. I think their price point is about $1-2 high based on what... More

This is a terrific place and I've eaten here off and on for the last 15 years! It's not cheap, but it is excellent. My all time favorite is the Smoked Turkey on onion roll with onion marmalade. There is absolutely nothing like it anywhere! Their cucumber/tomato salad is delish and still very healthy! The portions are just right. The... More

This hidden away gem was worth the drive! You walk in & seat yourself. Cash or check only so be prepared! Sweet servers with friendly southern smiles! I had the smoked turkey with caramelized orange marmalade onions. Delicious! Don't forget dessert....death by chocolate! Would love to go back & try other menu options! Thanks for a wonderful experience!
