The menu is broad enough to satisfy any palate and the food is not ordinary but cooked with class. You will not leave wanting and the experience is satisfying. The wait staff is friendly and the food is phenomenal. The times we have been there was no selection of southern sweet tea but plenty of alternatives.

Wonderful, home cooked meals and fabulous deserts. If you were to eat there every day , you would see everyone in Oak Ridge at least once a week. Don't eat the Italian Cream Cake... It's mine

Very good "home cooked" type meal. Nothing fancy but well prepared..You can expect things such as turkey and dressing, meat loaf, fish, and a variety of changing specials

While the food was great, the wait to be seated was extremely long. I was part of a large party, but we had called ahead to make arrangements

Love this place! Food always great as is the service. Desserts fantastic but I get mine to go because I never have room after the generous meal portions.

Visited again! One of my favorite restaurants. The catfish arrived hot and crispy. Their tartar sauce is delicious and you get a large portion. One large fish filet, not several small scrawny ones. The grilled corn is spicy and delicious. Fried okra was hot and crispy, too. Their version of chocolate pie has mile high meringue and is super chocolatey.... More

We are located in historic Jackson Square. This property once housed Jackson Square pharmacy. After 55 years in the same family this property became available because the previous owners wished to retire. We were lucky to get it. We renovated and tried to keep as much of the original charm as possible. We hope you like it.
