The chicken fried steak is excellent, breading is thin and and great taste. Many sides to choose from, the service is excellent. Quite a nice homely place to visit. Nice drive to get there.

Sunday afternoon dinner in a quaint old post office building. Great chicken fried steak. My friends burger special looked really good. Fried zucchini was prepared exceptionally well. Timely, friendly service.

My mom took my son and I here for the first time and we really enjoyed it. The staff is very friendly. I ordered the fried catfish and he got the shrimp. Each came with two sides. The food was hot, fresh and delicious. You can tell they cook with love. I also ordered the sweet tea and was warned... More

First if all, this is the only restaurant open after 3 in McQueeney in the winter. The lodge is members only and seasonal. The burgers are best around (well beyond McQ) for lunch and the prime rib is the dinner special. I prefer mine rare or med rare but it is definitely best when it has slow roasted the extra... More

This is a first time lunch spot for my family. Blake's Cafe has good reviews, and great Chicken Fried Steak! If you are in the area you need to stop for a visit.

If you find yourself here you're probably at the lake or hunting nearby. I was here after a morning dove hunt and was seating right away, it was pretty busy at this time, and the staff was very friendly. I had the lunch portion of the chicken fried steak. I thought it was cooked very well, the mac'n cheese and... More

Chicken fried steak was excellent. Appetizers were half orders which was just the right amount of food. Service was good.
