While at a historically site we were referred here. Very nice atmosphere and pleasant people. The Catfish and cabbage was wonderful. The fried chicken wasn't what we were used to but good. We ordered the bread pudding to go. Hope it's good.

I love this place. Just like the previous location, great food, attentive staff, and super value. The Chicken fried chicken is so well made and the desserts are a meal themselves. The staff treats you like a family member and the service is prompt and...More
