The staff was very welcoming and you felt like family the minute you sat down. The food was quick, fresh and delicious. The place was within walking distance of our hotel. We would have ate there everyday if it was possible!

It is nice to find a restaurant that is pro Christian and pro military and have the signs to display it. I had eggs, grits, bacon and pancakes and all was very good. The staff is polite and friendly and it just feels like you eating with your neighbors. I will probably visit here every time I come to Helen.

Food very good and service excellent. We had turkey and cheese sandwich with onion rings and third pound burger. Both were very good and prices reasonable for tourist town.

This great restaurant is in conjunction to a great little gift shop called The Village Peddler. You can eat in or out in a charming courtyard or on the porch. Wait staff are very friendly as the food is down home good! We are a retired couple but love to bring our children and grandchildren as well as friends. Very relaxing and price is very moderate!!
