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

Looks like it would be better for a breakfast place. We went for lunch and it was slow with a rude server. The sausage and gravy tasted like flour and was very disappointing. The grilled chicken sandwich and fries were fast food tasting so just...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.
