You would drive by this restaurant as it just looks like an old home. It's not, its fabulous, both for dinner and breakfasts. Try the Southern Fried Chicken, or the beef/yorkshire pudding offering. You won't be disappointed.

I'm a chef. I am very critical when it comes to eating out. I heard good things about this restaurant so I decided to take my brother and his family there. We waited 40 Minutes to receive 1 appetizer, and 1 1/2 hours to get...More

Had lunch with a friend and the pickerel was delicious. She had turkey pot pie which was a huge serving and also very delicious. Would definitely return again if in the area.

A history buff's dream! Poke through the collectables, peruse the books. You may find you have a lot of time, as the place is pretty understaffed. There are all kinds of kitschy knick-knacks around, and delightful old books. Even my young nephew, who does not...More

The food tastes good, but if they want to get more of family clientele I think they do need to clean the place better. That said, if they prefer to be more of a local drinking hole, then it works. We used to go almost... More
