Honestly, based on the "eclectic" appearance of the place, you're gonna be shocked at what comes out of the kitchen. Highly recommended by locals and it's easy to see why. Friendly staff. Delicious breakfast. Unique and quirky surroundings. Great coffee that comes in your grandpa's Stanley thermos. Don't be tempted to drive on by for something that looks nicer. This... More

Great for biscuits and country charm on a small scale via Sonoma or Napa. Not for large groups or the noisy. Good for a midday repast. Now with extended hours.

You can sit inside at the bar and watch how wonderfully this kitchen team works together, or outside under the marquee/ tent which is more open depending on the weather. The food here is really good. I like the oyster po boy myself but my husband raves about the spicy friend chicken. Their sides are good normally but we have... More

Iconic! Review a compendium of a South Georgian, Savannahan, Charlestonian, and Nashvillian---all foodies with knowledge of Southern fare. Wait time was estimated to be 45 min but we were seated inside in 15 at high noon on a Saturday. Real Dr Pepper in the retro-bottle set the stage for an amazing lunch. The fried chicken on a waffle was to... More

The ambiance, the brisket, the oyster sandwich and the farmhouse ale. My kind of place! It's trully worth the drive if you're in the area. Ask for Lex, she's the coolest.

Not sure where to start but you must eat here. It's located in the rolling hills of Sonoma, it's a little bit of a dive (if you read my reviews that is the highest praise I can give, love dives), the waiter was quirky and funny and the food was off the hook! To start, on their picnic tables is... More

Stopped for lunch. Service was a bit did-jointed but ok. Food was very good. Wait time was not bad. So overall nice little different place. Felt more like I was in rural Arizona or Nevada than wine country.

We visited here last October and the year before. On each occasion, they got the order for one of us wrong ... the service was hectic ... the toast was chilly ... and the restaurant drafty. It must be the only diner in America that doesn't have hash browns (or something close to it). The prices are way too high,... More
