We had just done whitewater rafting and looking for a spot did lunch before drive home. We loved every thing we had for lunch!! Especially the creamed corn!

It was a nice place to sit down and eat with the family after taking in some whitewater rafting. I would rate the food as good and plentiful. Not a "wow" but definitely good. The dessert was a notch up. The service was good. The...More

Their website does not provide an answer. There are several restaurants in the Columbus area. Suggest you call 706-660-1415 and check.
