I had the fried chicken livers. They said it was one of their top sellers and I see why. Generous portions. Loved the fried cornbread that came with dinner.

This is a family run restaurant with good southern food. It is located near the Willet distillery. We had soups and sandwiches which was just perfect for lunch. The best part was the pies for dessert.

Did the lunch soup and salad special, which was OK. The hot lunch options may have been a better choice in retrospect. A couple of customers who came in after liked their hot lunch a lot.

Reservations not required, but it never hurts to call. I don't remember the hours but do remember that they are (or were) closed on Sundays and Mondays, and also from Jan 1 to Mar 1 for the cold season.
