My wife and I have eaten here for dinner and breakfast and it's good comfort food. The wait staff has always been very friendly and knowledgeable. The Meat and 3 is the way to go for dinner.

I always get to go. The food and service has never failed to be wonderful. Great daily choices and overall menu. Eat here at least once, if not twice a week to get good, healthy food.

This wasn't anything to write home about but was typical of a southern cooking restaurant. They do have a small plate for $4.19! I had the fish, greens, and squash. It was just the right amount in quantity and price.

Great if you want overcooked everything. Fried pork chops are worth the visit! Gotta be bad now and then!

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!

We had a nice waitress and the food hit the spot ( I ordered country fried steak, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, and squash casserole) and was very good.
