A pretty inconsistent establishment--some of the dishes are superb (such as the catfish bits and French onion soup), others are just perfunctory. And the service is similarly inconsistent, sometimes wonderful, other times earnest but perfunctory. But it's an interesting feature of an interesting town and certainly worth visiting.

We stopped here on our way into Occonechee State park in Clarksville, Va for breakfast . The staff was very friendly and the food was pretty dang good. They have some American classics and a few of their own dishes. It has an older feel, similar to a banquet hall in the 80s or 90s but def worth a trip... More

No better place for cocktails and dinner with friends you want to impress. Prime rib is best in the state. Not over priced. Denise will take care of you.

You will not walk away hungry when you order one of their omelets. It was made to perfection and reasonably priced.

We stopped in for a late dinner as the parking lot was full. Other places in town seemed empty. I had a patty melt and my son had pasta. The food was good and fresh. Service was a bit slow.

Large menu that went disappoint! My co-worker and I ate here on a business trip. I was very happy with the slow cooker pork B-Q platter. Really good! My co-worker had the blackened catfish and Calabash shrimp. We topped off the meal with an outstanding pineapple coconut cake!
