This is a MUST-go to place. The absolute best food and so much of it. Fascinating history, and the hostesses were great. Can’t say enough about this place!

Highly recommend this historical boarding house! You need to make advanced reservations. Only open for lunch the day we went. It was one seating at 1 pm. Family style. Yummy selection freshly prepared. Great service! Awesome hostess! Clean! A fun experience

We love this place. I bring my mother in law here every year for her birthday. Food is always exceptionally good. Only place that is even close to my grandmother's fried chicken.

A unique experience in a beautifully decorated house with wonderful hostesses. The food was plentiful and delicious. Famous for the fried okra and Jack Daniels infused baked apples. Our hostess, Brenda was informative and funny!
