The food is family style food but not seasoned very well Big portions if that is your idea of a restaurant. Pie is excellent. Restaurant is crowed tables and no privacy.

People are very friendly. Wonderful cinnamon rolls. Huge! Filled up a whole styrofoam to go box. They warmed it up for me even before I left to eat on the road. EXCELLENT!

My husband and I had the buffet. You get a salad bar, 3 types of soup, multiple desserts, 3 types of vegetables. There was ham, turkey catfish. We were there on the day before Thanksgiving so I think the food was geared more towards the holiday. All the food was very good. I especially liked the potato soup, carrots and... More

What the food lacks in real flavor, they try to make up with insanely large portions. I have eaten there three times in a six month period, ordered different things every time, and have never had a good experience. The wait staff is not very friendly or attentive, and I think they are under staffed for how big the operation... More

Wonderful food, great service and a charming place to sit and chat. We had catfish and chicken fried steak and it was superb. We took half of it with us. The cornbread is some of the best I've had. The desserts look incredible but we didn't have room for any.

I have visited several times and it just is too unpredictable. Sometimes the food is good, other times horrible. The service is usually not the best on any given day. To me it's not worth stopping in because you just don't know what you're going to get that day. The prices are too high for the quality of food they... More
