My husband and I were traveling through the area and I found this place online. I'd call the food Southern gourmet, and it was quite good. The atmosphere is casual and lovely outside near their water feature. We'll definitely be back.

This is a lovely place to eat Southern home cooking, like meatloaf and fried chicken. We enjoy everything that we have tried there so far. It is also fun to browse the nursery that surrounds the restaurant. They have dining outdoors amid the lovely plants...More

This little place is just incredible in food, service and atmosphere. I own a retail business nearby where shoppers constantly ask for recommendations and this is my number one choice now to send folks for lunch.

Stopped for lunch...fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, and garlic green beans. All very good and tasty. We enjoyed the atmosphere too. Inside a beautiful little garden center. Has roll up garage doors to let the breeze in. Just fun 😊

Excellent choice for a midweek lunch! Buttermilk fried chicken with mashed potatoes was delicious and the fried green tomatoes looked excellent as well. Fun space to sit surrounded by local plants for sale and lots of little books for conversations.

While staying at a local B&B, my wife and I were recommended this place for lunch. Quaint dining area located inside a nursery. We had the fried chicken and the bacon-wrapped meatloaf. Both were tasty. $28 for entrees, sides, and dessert.

Like the title says... I don't like tomatoes. But their Fried Green Tomatoes is my favorite dish there! However, their chicken pot pie, fish tacos, kale salad, I can keep naming everything on the menu but I don't want to spoil the surprise of it....More
