We stopped there on our way back home because we'd heard good things about it! It was true! When we were seated there were small bowls on the table and we wondered what they were for. Turns out you get a large bowl of potato...More

The potato soup was excellent! My daughter had 3 bowls and she didn't want to try it at first. Other than the potato soup the food was average. Kid's meal was a good deal. Choice of different sides other than fries was a nice touch....More

We try to go to the Corn Patch once month or so. The furniture isn't much to look at but is very comfortable. The food has generous helpings. Great food and service!

Decent meal reminds me of a run down Country Kitchen really understaffed which they apologized for and acknowledged on their own. Clean accommodations just looks leftover from the early 80s. Probably wont be back.

We got a groupon for this place and are so glad that we did. The amount of food you get for your money is probably one of the best deals I've seen. You get homemade potato soup with every visit, homemade bread with each visit...More

We went here for the first time on Friday. Our server was very inexperienced but I think she might have been helping during spring break. We both got the fried chicken. We've never been here before and are local so with a Groupon thought we...More
