Family owned restaurant for 70 years. Food was delicious. Homemade breads, biscuits, and pies. Probably 10 different pies to choose from. There is also food already made to take out from the refrigerator out front. Literally sits right next door to the Best Western hotel....More

Our family has been stopping here on our I81 travels for decades and luckily not much has changed. Always guaranteed to be good home cooked food and the pies are extra yummy! Make sure to take one home with you!

Had the hamburger steak. It was ok. I think the mashed potatoes were instant and the gravy tasted like it came out of a jar. Was not the "home cooking" that we were expecting. Will not eat there again.

Old family restaurant with lots of history. Service was slow, food just ok (crab cakes left a lot to be desired), but the pie was great!
