Gravies reminds me of my childhood, where my parents would take us for dinner. A place were locals go for the down home family dinning experience. Not real big, simple not fancy, friendly service and good food at a good price. Get there early!

Gravy features traditional plate lunch-style dinners, serving country fare such as pork chops, fresh vegetables, fried chicken, as well as some seafood items. Quality is good, service is good, prices are very good. Recommended as a change of pace from fried seafood.
