See review for Glidewells--processed cheese square on top of french onion soup that never melted, frozen mush fries and unremarkable burger. Wish I'd spent the money at the grocery store & cooked at home.

I don't know how to rate this one. The name brought us in, along with the historical building. Once in its not inviting just cold tables and chairs all over on one side and huge bar on other. Next room is small but nice with...More

We waited 40 minutes to have soup and wings. Denied! None of our three top choices we wanted were available. We were forced to chose from 4 options. The fried tomatoes were good. Everything else was greasy and poorly prepared. They clearly have buckets of...More

After Six Pence told us we'd have a 30-35 minute wait before us (and that we'd get the same wait elsewhere), we went across the street to MK's Southern Cooking. I thought it was a bit odd that the plastic summer chairs and tables outside...More

Visited with a friend on a busy Saturday in October. Food was okay, nothing special, I had the bar-b-que and my friend had the fish. We were told by the waiter that they did not have sandwiches for lunch, although we did see someone with...More

Please don't even consider this place. The staff was clearly overwhelmed (but very sweet). The food was lukewarm and tasted like 'something posing as meat'. The pimento cheese was served very cold and gummy. The waiter said they made it in house but I'm sure...More
