During the winter, I love the homemade soups and chili at the Artist Colony. Great comfort food on cold days. The restaurant is warm and inviting and servers are friendly and helpful.

Easy access for persons with mobility issues. Tasty home cooked meals. Great pecan pie, but too small. Very festive at Christmas time.

We went for breakfast and had the buffet. Scrambled eggs, biscuits, sausage gravy, potatoes, fresh fruit, bacon, fried biscuits, apple butter, pancakes, coffee cake, pumpkin bread, and drink. Came with our overnight stay. Lots of choices but not that flavorful.

Absolutely no wine is served at any time and you can't take your own bottle to the restaurant. Reason? Too close to a church!
