Everything is good pot pies, catfish, meatloaf desserts. If you are with first timers you mid sit at the rising tables. Your guest will get a big surprise. Just sit and enjoy the food, shops and shows.

You are immediately served warm homemade cornbread with honey butter once you have placed your food and drink order. The portions are plentiful. Servers are great.
