I can't think of a single good thing to say about this place...so I'll say nothing. Except that I can't believe how some of the locals rave about it!

My husband and I were able to visit this place again this year on vacation. The food was still great. Fish, shrimp, hush puppies, sweet potato, and salad for me. My husband enjoyed beef tips, fried okra and salad.

For touting their marinated steaks as being the best around, this was simply awful. Very salty, and a thin-cut ribeye that was hard to cut. No good. On the plus side, everything was cheap.

This is another hometown favorite. It's not much in the way of looks, and if you are planning a high end dinner in the area-not your place, but if you want somewhere with a nice view, fun atmosphere, good service, and great food-check it out!...More

This used to be a really cool place to eat. Over the years the prices have gone up and up and the quality has gone down and down. The last few times I have been here to eat the place has been absolutely disgusting and...More
