When we came, the wait was 40 minutes. Once we were seated, we ordered the two most popular dishes, the boneless fried chicken with gravy and the meat loaf. Both of the dishes appeared to be microwaved, and the mac and cheese was disappointing and...More

I do not know about Thanksgiving time. I went during the summer. From what I understand it is always busy. If you are able to make a reservation, I would do so.

Since it is downtown, business casual would be appropriate. No ties, etc. just be yourself and enjoy.
