This was my 3rd attempt to have a decent, and timely-lunch at this establishment. Once again-disappointment. The food, every time, has been really good. Wait time is horrible. do NOT go here for lunch unless you call it in and pick it up

This is a real gem. The portions are large, the lunch prices are fair value, and the servers are very accommodating = they will cook things to special order without hesitation. The chicken tenders were huge, they have sweet potato fries and fried green tomatoes!

The food was ok, nothing amazing. Like several other reviewers, we had horrible service. Sat at a table outside and waited 15 minutes as several servers walked past us without a greeting. Once we were greeted, the waitress disappeared to get our drinks, and returned 10 minutes later empty handed. They were out of the wine I ordered, but she didn't even bring us water when she delivered the news. When she did return with water, mine had something floating in it. The server was really nice, however she had no sense of urgency. Disappointing that this is the 2nd best restaurant and in town. Does not leave me much hope for the rest of my trip.

I enjoyed the fried tomatos, cheese burger and sweet potatoe fries! Nice environment for a family meal in Pikeville KY.
