Had a quick breakfast of corned beef hash and eggs. The hash was homemade, but it was like nothing I had every had. It was chunks of meat and potatoes. Not the best I had every had. Coffee was good. Not sure I'll give it a second chance, too many other options.

We arrived at 6:30 and sat and ate at the bar as no tables were available. The menu had a nice variety of upscale items. Prices were moderate and service was prompt and friendly. This is a nice downtown dining option.

Taken there for a evening meal with friends. Venue was okay - and had some oldey worldey charm, but wouldn't go there for anything more special than just finding a place to eat out. Food menu was the size of a book so that takes a good 5 to 10 minutes to go through. Food quality - yep - okay... More

This place is a gem! The fried catfish and grits special is to die for! So amazingly delicious! My 9 yo son is hooked on the chicken tenders! Could eat here everyday! The price is so right in the right part of town - downtown!

I swung by here after it being recommended by a few people and then got lunch again the following day. I only had burgers but they were very good and cooked just right (try the one topped with cheese and mushrooms). Both times I sat at the bar to eat along with many other lunch-hunters and got chatting to a... More

We went here for breakfast this morning. I got a BLT sandwich and fries and my husband got 2 eggs, bacon, potatoes and apples. My sandwich was good but the bacon with ice cold and had a lot of fat on it. My husband's bacon was cold too. His potatoes were room temperature and the fried apples had a lot... More

We've been here a number of times and feel like the quality of the food has decreased in the past year. Used to go for the great unique pimento cheese grilled cheese sandwich, but other local favorites but things seem to have averaged out to generic diner fare now. The atmosphere and old diner counter are interesting, but we make... More

Enjoyed fast friendly service and southern dishes, especially breakfast. Sweet potato pancake so good...it is their specialty. So tasty I am going to make to serve in my B&B. So many choices...I have to come back. Recommend highly

We heard great things about this restaurant and it turned out to be a total let down. Five out of six people in our party had cold food. The presentation was unappealing as well. Will not be going back.

Friendly, clean, fun decor, convenient to Holiday Inn. Breakfast selection was adequate but arrived to my table cold. Even the tea was cold and the orange juice never arrived.
