There were five of us, we all had something different for dinner, everything was good. I had the special, pork cutlets, very tender. I ate every bit of my dinner.

One of the better dinners we had on a road trip through Kentucky. Good service and food. I had the Fried Green Tomato salad and some sort of bean soup. Yummy !

Students use this as an opportunity to prepare themselves for their future. They are so well trained, I gave several my business card hoping they will contact me when looking for employment in the future.

After seeing signs along I-75 we knew we had to stop. The building itself is worth seeing, tall white columns, flowers, very nice. The dining room is one large, sort-of divided room that is very noisy. The food was good but certainly not outstanding. Service...More
