Love to stop in and have a bowl of white soup beans and sweet cornbread. The wait staff is always great! Alexis is an AWESOME server.. Highly recommend McFarlains on your next visit. Oh the pie is soooo good too.

What can you say always good food the fried pickles or fried green tomatoes are a great appetizer plus you're right there next to the IMAX which is always great.

my dinner was great. I really liked the fried green tomatoes for an appetizer. my friend's steak was very undercooked, but they corrected that. Her daughter's hamburger was overcooked and dry.
