Fried pickes appetizer is great. chicken fried chicken equals awesome. Get mashpot and green beans. The burger is great too. Homemade ding dong to boot, or the jack daniels pecan pie or coconut pie. .

Enjoyed this eatery. Great food, had the meatloaf and a friend had the chicken fried chicken. This is in the middle of older part of Port Lavaca. Nice atmosphere and nice staff.

Stopped here on our way back to Serendipity RV park in Palacios & and boy were we glad we did! Didn't look like much from outside but inside has very nicely decorated. Service was quick, friendly and attentive. Hubby had chicken fried steak with green beans. He said the white gravy was the best he's had in quite a while... More

We were greeted and seated immediately by the owner. Our drinks were on the table almost instantly. Our waitress (Megan?) was great. This is a casual Texas themed comfort food restaurant. Everything we ordered was delicious and reasonably priced. My sons each had a slice of pie for dessert. The chocolate meringue pie was about 6 inches high. I would... More

Best restaurant in town! We ate there several times during the 6 months or so that we were in town. Great food and service. Not overly priced either.

Met at the door by friendly owner, Vic, and seated promptly by friendly staff. It took longer for us to choose our food than it did to receive it as the menu looked so good as did the special of the day. Hubby decided on the ribs (Vic doesn't sell his sauce unfortunately as it was THAT good!) and I... More

Ive been here twice as a dinner date and the food was good. We wanted margaritas and they were absolutely terrible! It tasted like frozen ice with no flavor! I never complain about my food but i was so upset about the bad drinks that i told the cashier. She actually agreed and said "yes, we have had complaints and... More

This place prides itself on having locally sourced foods, and so when I ordered a burger, I realistically expected to get a good quality patty, but it was a mass-produced, flavorless patty. Spouse ordered the quiche which was devoid of cheese and flavor. The pecan pie was great though!

On a recent day trip to Port Lavaca, we came across this gem of a restaurant located right on Main Street in downtown Port Lavaca! We decided to stop in for lunch at about 2 pm on a Saturday afternoon. The place was no too busy, but there were about 10 other patrons there. We were immediately greeted very warmly... More
