This is a great basic restaurant. The food is the usual southern fare. The catfish and the chicken are great. Always has great tea! And you can get cornbread muffins or rolls with your meal. I go for the cornbread!

This is a casual place with good prices. I thought it would be more like a Cracker Barrel, but it fell short of that. The staff was warm and friendly. But the food was inconsistent. Some things were good, others not so much. The green...More

The menu features comfort food, which is sometimes all you desire while traveling. We tried the Sunday special, which was Southern Style Pot Roast, with fried okra, and mashed potatoes with gravy. It was very tender and we enjoyed the gravy. The okra was good....More
