Stumbled across this gem while hiking in the mountains. Loved the old timey rustic look. Food was fantastic, as was the service. Loved the casual laid back feeling. Highly recommend and will be back.

We didn't experience slow service. But we were there when it wasn't busy. I will say they do not have the same menu you'll find posted online. I really only wanted a soup and salad and neither were available anymore. The only food options here include bread. So keep that in mind if you're gluten free, avoiding bread, or anything... More

The merchants were welcoming and the items they carried in the store were memorable and unique. You may find that special candy you enjoyed as a child to bring back some fond memories.

Haven't been here in several years and they have cut the menu back to basically a short order grill with a good burger and sandwiches. They used to serve a good plate lunch with good deserts. It's not worth the drive.

Wife and I had breakfast here. We were staying in Helen, and knew about this place from a previous visit way back in 1991. It's still there, and they're serving a great breakfast at an unbelievable price. She had the biscuits with sausage gravy, which I believe is their specialty. I had a cheese omelet, grits and a biscuit. Everything... More

This has been a regular stop every year when we are in town for our annual trip. This will be our last. Ordered our regular sausage biscuit and a link sausage biscuit, only to discover they no longer have link sausage. Had city ham as a substitute. The biscuits were heavy, with very tough bottoms. The sausage was average, but... More

Menu is simple and the food is great. Laid back mountain atmosphere and interesting clientele (locals, campers, bikers, lake folk, trout fishermen). Make a reservation for dinner for a real treat. Milkshakes!

We have stopped here twice for breakfast. Both times we found the servers to be friendly and polite. The food was good simple breakfast fair. The pancakes my daughter had were very good. We are looking forward to trying them for lunch.
