Wonderful, inviting front porch and gorgeous gardens add to the atmosphere of this restaurant. We ordered the chicken fried steak and it was prepared with a crispy crust, just the way it should be. Samantha was our waitress, sweet and very attentive. Take a walk...More

Cute country place with a great front porch. The food is good, but not outstanding. Interesting landscaping out back makes for a pleasant stroll after dinner.

We did not actually eat here, we came for the gardens. We bought several plants and flowers. The staff was so nice and knowledgeable. The selection of plants is very nice, and healthy. Plus, they jave plants no one else had.

The service was good. The atmosphere was average. Cannot say we were ready for seating among the grocery and wine items; I suppose that was supposed to add some country faire. The food was also average; about the same as any chain restaurant.
