Stopped in for lunch while in the area. Great service provided by our server Desiree! Burgers a little salty but excellent pimento cheese, plentiful waffle FF, AND the most unusual but amazing banana split cheesecake!! Lots of local beer choices too! Fun, friendly place.

We had lunch here and the food was good but not great. We split a burger, fries and cole slaw. Burger was good, slaw was very bland. Enjoyed sitting outside under a covered patio.

Do you allow dogs on the outdoor patio? We're staying at a rental and we're not supposed to leave our dog alone in the cabin.
