Great homemade food. Most every thing including the pasta are homemade. Scrumptious food friendly service (Miranda) and great deserts a mile off 19 in Summerville. What more could you one ask for? Loved it!

We stopped by for lunch on our way down to NC based on their ratings on TripAdvisor. As other reviewers have pointed out, the exterior is not inviting, but the inside was clean and comfortable.

Small family style eatery in this small town. Terrific food, low prices, and great portions. I had the ribeye special that was great, came with homemade corn bread and a veggie for $12!!!!!! They are known for their burgers which my wife had and loved. Get some banana pudding!

we joined friends in Summersville for Bridge Day. Got lucky finding this great little restaurant. Great home cooked meals, generous servings, fair prices, friendly staff. We ate breakfast and dinner there 2 days in a row. A few minutes off of rt 19, worth the trip.
