Stopped in here to eat lunch. The daily special for the day was chicken salad on a croissant roll. The chicken salad was very good. I ordered a side salad rather than the french fries. Very tasty. They also had a buffet if you so choose. I recommend this restaurant.

The server, Brooklyn, was accommodating and very friendly however the food left a bit to be desired. We looked at the buffet. The pork chops were so-o-o past their prime. I would not have even had those on display! There was fried chicken on the buffet, but based upon the appearance of the pork chops, I wouldn't try it. I... More

We stopped here for lunch while we were on road trip. We both had chicken sandwiches and they were good. Very nice server and fast delivery of food.

Was in Scottsboro shopping and stopped here for lunch. BAD choice !! Service was totally lacking (waitress was busy talking and completely forgot to bring our salads), food was terrible - steak was overcooked and tasteless, baked potato was a left-over, rewarmed potato that tasted blah, and even after asking for additional butter and sour cream we never received them....

We ate here on our recent fishing trip to Scottsboro. After all day on the lake we were looking for a place with good food. We really enjoyed it here! The waitresses were super friendly and food was served hot and fast! Try the shrimp and grits! Yum!

They seated us right away. We had the buffet and salad bar. The salad was fresh and crisp. The buffet was fresh and country style. They had fried green tomatoes that would melt in your mouth. A must stop !! Our waitress was amazing.

My wife and I made a trip to Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro. After an unfruitful shopping experience, we looked for a place to have lunch. Unfortunately, we decided on Carlile's. The owner (?), who was working the register, greeted us warmly and seated us. He told us they had a buffet and said that it was "fried Friday" and they... More

We were seated right away, and our orders were taken quickly. The chicken was so very good and very filling. No room for dessert, but. . . .they offered us a cupcake at the end of our meal so had to eat and enjoy that also. Plenty of room for seating, a few tvs, and a beautiful large hand made... More
