The service was wonderful. The food pure southern comfort fare. Set in the middle of downtown Perry and filled with charm, this was a delightful experience for a Sunday lunch.

Good food but bad service. No one working there that night appeared to be over 22 years old. No one seemed to be managing.

This is good old southern cooking at it's best. They have been making the same dishes for a long time and in my opinion have perfected most of them. Chicken and Dumplings, bread pudding, meatloaf, chick fried chicken - yum!
