Yum! The sweet potato biscuits are too good to be true! The lunch with portobella mushrooms and gravy over the biscuits is a wonderful comfort food.

Visited the restaurant twice this summer and was impressed by the quality of the food, the friendly and helpful waitresses and the overall ambiance of the establishment. And now they have patio seating in their new location just down the street from the original site.

The food here is great and the service is okay. We've enjoyed lunch and dinner here on different occasions. Love the fried green tomato BLT sandwich!! But the sweet potato cornbread with the honey ginger butter is FANTASTIC!! Probably could eat two pans by myself!

If they have one I didn't see nor asked for it. I feel they would accommodate you the best they could. They were very attentive to us and other patrons in restaurant.
