Breakfast was so delicious!! My kids indulged in the chocolate chip pancakes while my husband and I dined on Mexican Roll Ups, Eggs Benedict and of course pancakes. The amount of food is incredible. We couldn't stop eating! So good!

The biscuits were amazing, and the rest of the food was good southern fare. The waitress was attentive, though the kitchen staff was slow. Prices were very reasonable. Yum!
