My husband and I have been enjoying fried chicken here for fifty years. The family always peruse the antique displays. It's a great place for extended family to meet and eat as we're seated in a special room with long tables. Occasionally someone orders something other than chicken and the rest of the menu is okay but not great. The... More

This is a nostalgic place to bring the whole family as there are many artifacts around to introduce to the kids. The fried chicken is excellent but there are not many other choices on the menu. It is all served family style for the sides. The corn fritters are awesome.

The atmosphere is very nice. The meal was great, chicken very fresh. I wish there were a few more choices for the sides, though. I would have liked to have a choice of either vinegar or mayo slaw for instance.

Great chicken, tasty sides, makes this huge restaurant a good place to get your fill of comfort food. The colonial vibe is pretty out of date but it's clean, is sort of fun to look at all the antiques, and the service is great. The corn fritters were a tasty calorie splurge.

This is our go to place for fried chicken. It is always moist, tender and crispy. The excellent starters, bean salad, hush puppies etc. are very good. The half chicken is the standard order,which does not allow substitutions but my wife and I prefer dark meat so we go with the two piece where we pick and add other pieces... More

Recently had a 100 person banquet at WFF and it did not meet the ratings on this site. The food was average (We had the fried chicken dinner with all of the relishes). The chicken was tasteless, served with a plain baked potato. Dessert was a small plastic cup of low quality ice milk. Service was fair, considering the large... More

I have been eating this chicken since I was a little girl! White fence farm chicken is always juicy and the outside is always a perfect crispy brown piece of meat!!! It melts in your mouth! The hush puppies are some of the best that I have ever tasted! This is one of the best chicken places around!!!
