Don't let the outside fool you., This is an excellent place to eat! They serve local foods cooked to perfection. If you love oysters, you have to try their local Stumpy Point oysters. Be sure to get their corn nuggets as one of the sides.

Ate Breakfast here right before hitting the highway towards TN. Finished our food around 9:30 and didn't need to eat again until 4pm! We had hearty sausage and egg sandwiches, and some really good biscuits and gravy. Prices were really good for feeding 5 people...More

This is the restaurant all the locals eat at. They have a good variety of food, anything from burgers to sandwiches, wraps to salads and beans and cornbread and collards. I had a chicken salad wrap and it was really good.
