We were camping at Chester State Park and decided to try one of the many locally owned restaurants. This one was actually picked at random from a GPS search of the area. It was a stroke of good fortune that we landed here. The food was very good and the service was EXCELLENT! Once the identified us as "Out of... More

Sometimes it is difficult to just rate an eatery with a 1 to 5 "dot". My wife and I and our neighbors just had a nice, small town, great priced, friendly service, and well-stocked menu of a lunch and we enjoyed ourselves. Not french cuisine, and not a Charlotte foodie restaurant and surely not pretentious. Good enough for me to... More

This was pretty much your average diner, however, it was a smoke free place (which earned major points w/ my husband and I). But I must say, if you go here, you MUST try the Fried Green Tomato's with their signature sour cream!!! It truly is a taste bud treat! Hands down, they're probably some of the best FGT I've...

The food was so-so, the wait staff forgot or mixed up the order and the place appeared dirty. You could smell the grease from the fryer in the parking lot-ugh

Nice local restaurant with great service, quaint atmosphere and tasty food. The fried green tomatoes were excellent and the home made sour cream was outstanding. My wife and I had fried chicken dinners which were not bad, While we have had better fried chicken it was OK however the sides made the meal. The collard greens were delicious. Overall a... More

The waitress was awsome and the food was amazing. The home made fried potatoes are spectacular. If I am through that way agaim I will definitely... More

Ms. B and the rest of the staff took good care of us. My wife had the Hamburger Steak and FF and did something she never does: finished her whole meal. I had the Gyro and BP(warning the BP comes covered in sour cream). A lot to select from on the menu, has a Greek flare to it. All in... More

The only thing that stayed the same and is still good to go for is the sour cream and hamburger steak. I miss the old atmosphere.

Has a fairly varied menu, and it's a very simple affordable, though plain sort of place. Service is friendly and everything is very "down home". Not for you if you are seeking anything at all fancy.

Very good service and prices were good as well as food. They had lots of choices of food. You could get sandwich or could get a great meal which was home cooked.
