Great local family style restaurant . Good for small or large families . "Homey". Comfort food at its best. The fried chicken is probably the best along with fried cat fish and the usual trimmings.....greens, potato salad, beans, etc. All good and very friendly staff.

It was our first visit here, and our server, Haily, took the time to explain the menu. My wife and I both got the fried chicken , which was great. Our sides were also very good: Mac and cheese, blackeyed peas, butterbeans, Very enjoyable meal

We never would have stopped here on our own but locals insisted. We are glad they did. Still had to wait for a table at 2PM but worth it. Food was delicious and plentiful.

My husband and I went for Sunday brunch with my 1-year-old and mother. The food was great. They had a “pumpkin patch” and hay stack out front and a chicken coop out back that we explored while we had our 35 minute wait. It was...More

Sundays brunch is incredibly busy, but the wait is worth it! Chicken and waffles were devine! Chicken kitchen salad was amazing (but beware, the ranch dressing isn't just with a kick, it is **spicy** and delsih!)... staff is very friendly and helpful! Highly recommended!

We both had the white meat chicken plate. For sides I had okra and tomatoes and creamed corn. My wife had collard greens and broccoli casserole for her sides. Rustic setting with good friendly service. Finished with warm cherry cobbler with ice cream - Yummy.

I believe they serve beer and wine, although I just drank sweet tea. I recalled a beer and wine list.
