Rolls were good but a bit buttery and soggy in the middle, but I had great service from Madeline. I got a 3 piece dark and the thighs are tiny but decent. Probably not going back, I wanted to see what the hype was. There wasn't a hype, sorry. 😔

This was a good family restaurant. We ordered the hamburger and chicken fried chicken, which we enjoyed. The dinner rolls were out of this world! The service was great and our waitress was kind and attentive. I would highly recommend.

This place has something for everyone from burgers to chicken and dressing. Different daily meats. They even have good steaks. Known for their homemade rolls. The best chocolate pie ever!

Read lots of great reviews but the reality was a let down. This is a very old place and the cleanliness was a little suspect. The bread was excellent but the fried chicken very greasy. I would not order chicken again. Service was good.

Great home style cooking and great wait staff. Food seems fresh and easy to get in and out of in the parking area. Building is a bit aged but clean. Highly recommended

This is a very good local place. The fried green tomatoes were excellent juicy and tart. I had the chicken with dressing and it came with 3 sides I had great real mashed potatoes and house made cinnamon apples. The service was very friendly and efficient. It is where the locals eat and a gray alternative to the chain restaurants... More

Our antique car club often has meetings at this restaurant in their private rooms. Servers are attentive and pretty good at figuring out who has ordered what...not your average servers... especially when we are in the middle of a meeting and not paying attention to them.... Excellent food and fair pricing. I hesitate to recommend as we don't want to... More

Visited on 9/3/16. The waitress was friendly. We never had to wait for refills. The food was very good. The rolls and corn muffins are the best I've tasted anywhere. We almost left once we saw the outside of the building, but are glad we decided to go in and look at the menu. This will be a place I... More
