On the recommendation of a Shelby County Sheriff deputy, we stopped in for lunch. Mmm, good! Grilled catfish, greens, cornbread and buttermilk cole slaw. Good service and the full parking lot told me this is a popular spot, even for lunch.

Number 1 why are restaurants allowed to have people smoke indoors, is it still the 60's. This is just obnoxious in 2016. The food is about the same as any other fast casual restaurant like Applebee's or similar. No variety no ambience

We stop here each year on our annual trip for the Tour of Duty fund raiser. We look forward to eating here. The beer is cold and the food good. Plus they have lots of room for all our friends.

The food was good, and the wait staff was great, but I was surprised that this was a bar. Half of the cafe was non-smoking, but it was "smoldering," and our clothes smelled of smoke.

I loved that there was music on the patio on Sunday evening; even if the guitar was good but the lady singer not so much. Weather was perfect! My Gumbo was good but my husband's burger was REALLY thin. However, they redeemed themselves on the...More

My co-workers and I go to this restaurant about once a week since we work just across the street from it. We have tried pretty much everything on the menu after many years. Nothing is bad, all pretty tasty. The wait staff really know us...More
