If you like great meat & 3 places, add this one to your list. Wednesday and Sunday are pot roast days. Some of the best pot roast I've ever found at a restaurant. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. The food is fresh and...More

My husband and I had dinner there last night. It was crowded but not claustrophobic, I ordered the chop steak, and my husband ordered the ziti with meat sauce and meatballs. The steak was a little dry but flavorful, the green beans were out of...More

Quiet, locally owned. While this place doesn't have awesome atmosphere, it does have a friendly old time diner feel. They had a two for one crab claw special which was great. I love crab claws and these were good. We had fast service and the...More

While my sister and I visited Dad in Montgomery, we had the chance to eat out a few times. Dad and his retired friends like this place, but I don't know why. Our waiter tossed napkins at us like he was dealing cards and then...More

The chopped steak was so dry you DAD to dip/sunk/immerse the meat in the tiny bowl of au jus. Otherwise some would be calling 911. The cornbread muffin was stone cold. The squash casserole was really egg casserole with a little squash. The fried okra...More
