Staff was very friendly and food was eclectic and delicious. I had the Shirley Temple sandwich. Just yum. Loved it! I'd come back if I'm ever in town again!

The staff is some of the nicest and friendliest in any restaurant that I have ever eaten at. The food is some of the best presentation and always/consistently has great taste. I eat here 2-3 times a week and it has been this way for over a month. They know my name and my "usual" order. I would highly recommend... More

If you are looking for unique sandwiches, then this is the place to visit. Most of the sandwiches are named after celebrities and are very tasty. There are salads and more. If you like bread pudding, you will love the bread pudding here.

You will not believe the food here. ..amazing! And all from this tiny place! Probably seats 12 among a lot of antiques. Or you might pick up a jar or two of home canned figs! We had the Pearl Harbor salad, chicken salad sandwich on croissant, shrimp/crab and corn bisque, lemon pie and bread pudding. I wish I was back... More

Very glad to have stopped here. A great small town experience and a lovely meal! Kitschy decor and attentive, warm service. The theme is old Hollywood and most menu items are named for movie/tv stars. The deviled eggs tasted homemade: everything made fresh when ordered, we were told. I believe it! I had the fig sandwich, ham and provolone with... More

If specialty salads and unusual sandwiches pique your interest, this is THE place to be! Wanda's salads have won several awards and her homemade dressings feature combinations you have never dreamed of.

If you want world class cuisine, fine wines and extravagant decor, thIs is definitely not it. But, if you're ok with old fashioned easy going service, good food, interesting atmosphere and don't mind messy, try this place. There are only six tables inside or sit outside in the Jim Bowie courtyard. The owner has been here for 25 years. The... More

Don't let the cluttered dining area and tattered menus keep you from having the best salads and sandwiches in town!
