The farmers market has been around for 65 years and still never disappoints me and my family. Everything just melts in your mouth and you can't go wrong with anything you choose from off the menu. Fried chicken, prime rib, fried ribs, huge ham hocks,...More

My family of 3 recently dined here with really high expectations for a nice home-cooked-like meal after reading numerous reviews. We couldn't have been more disappointed. First the good. The rolls were delicious. The corn bread muffins that weren't burned tasted awesome. Most of the...More

Thank you for the review. I'm very disappointed that we only deserved one star and do hope that you will give us another chance. I think our other reviews should give you some hope that things can be much better:) I've addressed your service issues...More

I am not sure about the hours. U can call or look on line. They do have take out.
