We had a great experience at this restaurant. The food came out hot and delicious. Our waitress, Samantha, was friendly. She made our dining very enjoyable. Be sure to try their fried green tomatoes and peach cobbler. We will be coming back for more.

We called in our order and arrived shortly after that and were prepared to wait. After 25 minutes they told us it would be another 20 minutes for the meatloaf. We finally got our order (5 meals) but they were missing my ice tea. I asked for unsweet and when we got home it was Sweet tea! YUCK! The food... More

Honestly one of the best places I've eaten at.. Food is good home cooked type of food. Fried green tomato's were great.. The mac and cheese is just like my Father use to make, and I was thrilled to find some place that made it..

Went there last night and had not been there in a couple of years. My wife and her sister had steaks which they said were very good. I had the grilled tilapia duo, not seasoned as well as previously but still tasty. This restaurant serves a little of everything so it is a good place to get a wide variety... More

This is a hit or miss spot. The food can be really good and the service can be really good--but neither were tonight. Everyone around us had issues with the wrong food or with not getting service for LONG periods of time (I know because we were warned upon being seated with a "hope you have better luck than we...

Really good services and friendly. Food comes out on time and for a reasonable price. The steak and chicken fried steaks are my favorite.
