While in E'town visiting today we thought we would break away from the chain restaurants and try something local. Saw on TA it has good reviews so we thought we'd give it a try. Bad mistake. Not sure if they have lots of local friends that posted great reviews to bump them to the top, but TA let me down... More

Went for a quick lunch on the suggestion of family from the area. Love the old building and the layout; our seating area was intimate with only 4-5 booths. Waitress was very attentive and helpful describing selections. I picked Pulled BBQ Pork Sandwich but it was overdone, and even with extra sauce was too dry for my taste. My companions... More

This is a terrific smaller restaurant on West Dixie (31W). Family owned. Great staff and the most delicious down-home cooking. Small gift shop with great candy too!

I recently enjoyed a homestyle meal at this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. The food is very tasty and worth the price! Best of all the deserts were like grandma used to make! The inside is so cozy and quaint. The upstairs shop was a nice after meal excursion!

"The restaurant that happened by accident " it says in their history. It has a wonderful menu but it feels like eating at home.

It had been over 5 years since we'd been in the area with an opportunity to eat here, after having lived in E'town several years ago, and it's as good as ever. We even had the same top-notch server who took great care of us over the years! The salmon patties are excellent. You can't go wrong with any of... More
