Very friendly staff and clean. They were under staffed for a very busy weekend. Disappointed on the grits ( very bland). The biscuits and gravy are excellent. It was a little slow and the poor waitress seemed frazzled.

This great restaurant is in conjunction to a great little gift shop called The Village Peddler. You can eat in or out in a charming courtyard or on the porch. Wait staff are very friendly as the food is down home good! We are a retired couple but love to bring our children and grandchildren as well as friends. Very relaxing and price is very moderate!!
