Today I had their fillet of flounder plate, with side orders of black-eyed peas and collard greens. I was afraid that the flounder would be greasy, and that the vegetables would be cooked in fatback. But they weren't; the flounder was light and fluffy and delicious; the vegetables were tasty and fresh. The service was excellent.

They have verygood vegetables and many of the entrees are really delicious. In the last year or so they have changed the recipies on some items and they are not nearly as good as they were - they used to have the best spaghetti sauce, but not so much now.

A variety of offerings, all tasty. It's our default restaurant when we want a quick, casual dinner. They know how to do it right.

I just love this restaurant!! I have been coming here for well over 15 years, and it has NEVER disappointed me!! The food is always excellent, although the service can sometimes be a bit slow. If you are on a really, really tight lunch time schedule, sometimes other choices may be warranted. The fried squash is always a favorite, but... More

We had dinner here on a Saturday night. It was not crowded at all and we were able to sit right down. The staff was very friendly. The food was very good and the portions were large enough to take home was well. It's mainly home cooking/ comfort foods. The prices were great. I definitely recommend.

What a wonderful place to get a fantastic meal. This place is family owned and run and they take great pride in what they do. All of the employees are friendly and welcoming. The food is always fresh, never greasy and tastes great. Also, I promise you will get more than enough at a great price.

This place is family run and the menu changes everyday with 7 or 8 specials. Their fried squash appetizer is one of the best appetizers I have ever ordered. Their Greek options are excellent as are the italian and traditional southern dishes. Service is also very good. Prices are very reasonable for the Charlotte metro area.

Ok, don't expect fancy. The food is good, service is prompt and prices are fair. The clientele is decidedly older. They do a big carry out business. I had a NY strip steak and my wife had the roast turkey. Salads, sides, rolls were fresh. Better than a diner.

Always delicious. We always eat at John's whenever we come to Ft Mill, SC. Nothing fancy, but still very nice and very clean. The food is real Southern Comfort Food like Roast Beef, mashed potatoes, Grilled Fish, Fried Squash, Collard Greens and the most delicious pies in the world. The prices are beyond reasonable and the service is great and... More
