Came here on recommendations from the owners of the bed and breakfast we were staying at. The lunch was fantastic and the staff was so friendly. Food was delicious, I would recommend the French onion soup and a burger. You won't be sorry!

Our dinner was SUPERB! We enjoyed the salads (loved the wedge!), prime rib, & ribeye with steak fries. Our waitress was sweet and vibrant! She had enthusiasm as she took our order & served us. The food was delicious!

I went here with six others; we all got different entrees and they all looked yummy. The airline chicken was my choice; it was tender and juicy and the corn grits served with it were perfect. My vegetarian friends had the eggplant and the black...More
