This really is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at for real country cooking. The fried catfish is the best. I've only had a bad server once there but I've never bad food. Luckily on all of my other visits the servers were attentive...More

After a long drive, it was really nice to stop in at this restaurant that welcomed us warmly, and offered a great selection of food types, including vegetables. It is surprising how few restaurants these days offer more than one or two vegetables in addition...More

I don't know if they're open on Labor Day; however, their location close to I-75 makes that a possibility. I'd suggest calling them to ask.
