Poor presentation of below average tasting food. Would have been better served at a cafeteria as the service was slow and food unseasoned and bland. Our plates sat on the counter 5 minutes waiting on cornbread. Prices are affordable, but left desiring due to the...More

Tucked away off of 16th street, this place is a gem. We stop for lunch when we're in myrtle beach for vacation and usually eat so much that we don't need dinner. The blue plate special is where it's at. I get the fried chicken...More
