This restaurant features a large menu, however, it would be better if they focused on a fewer items and more consistent. Portions were extremely large and hearty. The fried green tomatoes were definitely a hit. Chicken Piccata was not traditionally prepared with thin cutlets and...More

Good selection of breakfast and lunch items. There was an omelet menu for selecting ingredients but I never got one from the waitress. The Bloody Mary was super spicy. The fried oysters were the most popular. This place was our second choice since the other...More

We had burgers and they were good, and the dessert was good. We just never are really impressed here. We hadn't been in years and decided to give it another try. Seemed ok, but just not our cup of tea.More
