I have never been treated so rudely. The owner of this restaurant belittled me and humiliated me publicly in front of my children to the point that my little boy was shaking and crying. Full story is on my page. Avoid this place! Also, the...More

We went this morning for breakfast, but when we arrived there was a note on the door. They are closed for a family emergency. Sorry for their situation, but so many places are closed.

Very friendly staff and clean. They were under staffed for a very busy weekend. Disappointed on the grits ( very bland). The biscuits and gravy are excellent. It was a little slow and the poor waitress seemed frazzled.

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!!
