Food is good quality and quantity. Cost of food is above average but you won't be disappointed if money is not a problem. Neat old building to be in and the many attractive antiques from he past.

Have had many dishes here! Pork Fritter, open faced roast beef, bbq potatoe, fried catfish. All excellent. The pies and cobblers are a marvelous treat! All around wonderful, and great for families.

Stopped here for lunch and arrived before the lunch rush. Food was great as well as the service. The best part would have to be their desserts!! Peanut butter cup pie is highly recommended!
