Stopped in for lunch at this restaurant on the lake. Wasn't impressed with the hamburger steak so definitely don't order that.

i ordered the meatloaf, cabbage and potatoes. The cornbread was excellent. The portion size was excellent. The food was hot and fresh. the staff was very accommodating and extremely friendly. I felt that my money was appreciated.

Wanted to try something different and we should have looked at the reviews before coming here. Got here at 1:25pm, never been here before and the person at the counter asked if we wanted the buffet or a menu. We looked at the dry erase board at the selection and decided on the buffet. Poor choice as there wasn't much... More

Went for lunch with two coworkers, because they said the buffet was very good. It was less than satisfactory. Fried chicken was dry, as were the ribs. Selection of vegetables was good, but not all were flavorful. Nice staff, great lake view, but probably won't be back

My sister wanted a mom & pop style restaurant for lunch, so we stopped here on our way home from Augusta to Savannah. There were only a handful of customers there. The wait staff kept look out for us. If we needed a new drink, they brought it for us. They respected our wishes to keep one of the lights... More

We took my Mother-in-law out to dinner. It was 4 of us. 3 adults and 1 child. By the time we ordered we were the only ones in the restaurant. Our food took forever. My order came last even though I ordered grilled shrimp and onion rings. The server had to go back to the kitchen to bring back side... More

This looked like a good spot for lunch with its location on a small lake. It was a nice day but the deck looking over the lake looked as if it was never used. Too bad. The food was very average. I appreciate good southern cooking but this place missed the mark with mostly salty fare. The place looked to... More

did not like the food. It was cheap enough but there was not many restaurants or places to eat to choose from and it was on the later side of the day. We went there and were disappointed.

I've often passed by on my drive from Savannah to Augusta and thought it looked like a nice little place to try. Sat (2/15) I ended up passing by about dinner time and decided to give it a try. I asked the my waitress for a recommendation. She said the hamburger steak was popular, so I ordered it with fries... More
