We have been for brunch and lunch and tried multiple items. We have always like the food we get, but I have to say the pancakes are my favorite. One suggestion would be a higher grade syrup like a real maple syrup.

The restaurant is a house that is nearly 100 years old. It is very interesting inside and out. The menu options are vast, with a lot of traditional southern options and more. The burger was pretty delicious. Service was very friendly and attentive. Great spot....More
