We went here last Friday night for supper and it was great!! I ordered the stuffed baked potato. It was a baked potato stuffed with barbecue pork, with baked beans. It was more than one person could eat at one time! It was delicious!!

have eaten here many times, the catfish is pretty good, the portions are big. They have a lot of choices . The homemade coconut pie was very tasty. This is a small place with good food that will not break the bank.
