Wow. I don't think they follow health codes here. The food is either out of a can heated up, cooked and then reheated. Place is used as an office intermingled with aging dead plants with food being served. Was on RestAURANTG.COM IS WHY WE STOPPED.

I will agree with a few of the negative things other reviewers have said, it is not the cleanest or most well organized place I have ever eaten, but be nice - remember where you are and what you came for. Cut Wilma some slack...More

Ate here recently after a visit to the Coal Mining Museum and Loretta Lynn's house. Looked quaint and cute. Well maybe it was, but the food was horrible. It was cheap but not even worth the small price we paid. There are other country kitchens...More
