Fried green tomatoes are so good! Chocolate torte for dessert was also great. Mac and cheese was really cheesy! My son had the ribs and I had the grilled chicken breast. Everything was good!

Great atmosphere across from Railroad. Casual dining for couples or family. Good selection of food choices and drinks. Near Spa and in center of small town of Hot Springs. Can't go wrong for lunch or dinner. Enjoy!

Great menu, you don't need to drive to Asheville to experience great local cuisine. I've eaten here several times over the past couple of years. Discovered it when I was in Hot Springs several years ago for the Hikers festival.
