Nice place, but smoky. We had to sit outside, can’t do the smoke smell. Service was great, food a bit expensive but tasty!

On the recommendation of a Shelby County Sheriff deputy, we stopped in for lunch. Mmm, good! Grilled catfish, greens, cornbread and buttermilk cole slaw. Good service and the full parking lot told me this is a popular spot, even for lunch.

We stop here each year on our annual trip for the Tour of Duty fund raiser. We look forward to eating here. The beer is cold and the food good. Plus they have lots of room for all our friends.
