Place has outstanding food eat there several times a month. Plus you get what you pay for. Anything on the menu is priced decent and you will not leave hungry hopefully you can make a happy plate.

Omg what a great place for good southern food. The portions are large. Seriously you could feed a family on just the large chicken fried steak. The fish was great as well and plenty of it. The service was outstanding. Will certainly be back.

Their side salads are large, fresh, and crispy - the chicken salads, fried or grilled chicken, are huge and very tasty - a friend and I split one and even then we can't finish it all.

As all restaurants they have their menu for children, your child will not be disappointed with their menu, and if your child would like something different I think they would make it for them unless they were extremely busy.
