Been going here for more than 30 years. I have come to accept and tolerate the snarky attitude of the hostess, and the rediculous wait every time. Not any longer... The quality of the food has declined. The sanitation rate of 90 is unacceptable. The...More

The place looked primitive, especially the camp ground, but the food and service was excellent. We had lunch the first time and we came back again for breakfast, it was delicious too.

This is an out of the way location and is one of those local traditions that you will hear about if you ask for recommendations from residents in the southwest VA/NC area. It is quaint, with rockers on the porch and 1950's-era mountain cabins surrounding...More

No ...a different area
Will you be open Friday, November 18??? What hours? Do we need reservations? An earlier comment said you were closing at the end of October this year. We don't want to drive from Kingsport, TN and find your not open. Thanks for your prompt response. Sarah Sams
