Good clean place. Service was very good and the food was very good. Have a large menu from hamburgers to catfish and a lot in between. A good place to stop for a meal, just pull off Hwy 71 for a quick stop for food.

Very large number of menu options with an outstanding beer selection and great ambiance. You really cannot go wrong with anything on the menu but I always enjoy the fish tacos and their burgers are outstanding. The owner is a great local community activist as well.

Ate there twice and got sick both times! The second time I had to go to the hospital. Can't believe I was dumb enough to go back the second time.

We have eaten here several times and are never disappointed...lots of menu choices which are all good, cold drinks, serve yourself soft drinks and tea. And of course, it is interesting to look at the props and articles the owner saved from the various movies filmed locally, which are numerous. In good weather, the outdoor seating is a great place...

In town to visit family and friends. I've eaten here before and it was still good. My Mom had the catfish po'boy with fried okra. A tasty sandwich that's big and served hot. The fried okra was also very good, crunchy with excellent flavor. My sister and nephew had cheese burgers. A decent size patty and sandwich overall. My sisters... More

What a great place flow the whole family! The entry is inviting and resembles a front porch. Inside the restaurant is not too big but very comfy. Several 4 tops and bar tables make choosing a table easy. The cashier at the front was friendly and very familial with the menu. The menu is printed on the wall and is... More
