Have eaten here several times when staying in Altavista on business. Have always gotten average or above service. Never seems to be overly busy, may be different on the weekend. Recommend if Applebee.s is your thing.

Updated restaurant with a new look. The food was good and our waitress made sure we were taken care of. The food was very good with no complaints. Very good choice for business or family.
