If you are tired of the same chain restaurants in town, this is a great place for lunch. Chicken salad sandwich is very good, chips are made fresh in house. I have eaten here several times, food is always good quality, service can be spotty....More

This is a local favorite. Owned and operated by local resident. Great food. Love the decor. Wonderful place to meet a friend for lunch or dinner. Great chicken spaghetti and wonderful salads with homemade dressings.

Went in with 2 twin granddaughters. Food was truly excellent, and server Melissa was very patient with the kids. Even kids meals were made fresh. Will return next time we pass through.

Very nice location. Very quaint decorations. Very homey feel. Like you are at grandma's house. Food was above average. Some unusual items. Service was a little slower than I expected and it was not real busy.

Sarah's is on the corner of the town square, formerly a saloon and brothel in the olde days, now a delightful diner and upstairs B&B. Quaint, friendly, & homemade fare. We enjoyed grilled pimento cheese on sourdough, and the banana pudding. Only 15 minutes from...More
