Off the beaten path, surrounded by Hundred year old homes! Catfish was perfectly breaded (lightly), hush puppies were magnificent! Very good wine selection of you have a meal that calls for wine. Stall is very friendly and courteous! Bread pudding is to die for!

Been coming here for over 20years. The food is always very good. There is always a long wait, this is not a place to go if you are in a hurry!
