We visited this restaurant slightly before six on a Saturday evening and found it very busy, but with no wait. We were greeted promptly and quickly seated and given drinks. There were a couple of televisions playing college football, and--as the name implies--many different patrons of various ages there, including groups with small kids and grandparents. Friendly staff and quick... More

Seems popular with the locals. Had the crab soup (excellent but small portion) and the shrimp creole (also very good and a decent portion). My wife had crab cakes, a Caesar salad and cup of tomato basil soup, all of which she described as very good. They have a good selection of beer and wine. Service was prompt and friendly.

Good food and service. Recommended by front desk at hotel and was pleased. Would stop again. Chicken and waffles with peach syrup was great.

If you are passing through Jonesville on your way south, this is an excellent choice. We always prefer a truly local option versus a franchise, so it was nice to find Generations. Very good food, helpful staff; so we will definitely go there again.

Based on the other options in the area, this place is probably one of the best. The overall appearance of the restaurant & the stickiness of the floor made me question how good the food would be. However, based on the other options & time of day, we decided to give it a try. Our waitress was wonderful, but the... More

This local restaurant was suggested to us by hotel staff. What a great find for good food while travelling without going to a national chain. We arrived on a busy Friday night and seating was slow but well worth the wait.

Love to find little hole in the wall places where we can enjoy great food and support a community business. Generations was just that. Hamburger steak on special with pinto beans and cabbage (which was excellent -- still can't figure out what they did different and so good with the cabbage). I'm trying to be on "no carb" but couldn't... More

Have been eating here for years and if I lived closer would eat here 3-4 times a week! This is a family owned and run restaurant. I believe there are a few members in the kitchen that have culinary experience from somewhere other than our rural area. They manage to mix our good Southern favorites with a new twist that... More

Family restaurant with good food. We had the Asian steak lettuce wraps that were full of flavor . The wedge salad was delicious . It must be the most popular a lot of customers were ordering it. The wings were good as well.
