I felt like I was at summer camp eating here! That's a good thing. There are lots of knick knacks to look at while you are waiting for your food. The food was ok... not bad but it didn't taste quite as fresh as other...More

This is a nice casual dining experience. Good authentic Carolina cuisine, friendly service. We have been here several times, and the place is always packed. The service is always good and so is the food.

Just 5 miles off route 70 opposite Burgaw. Feels like a simple old hunting lodge (complete with stuffed animals on the walls) hanging from the bank alongside Holland Creek (tributary off Cape Fear River). Great place for bikers to stop in during a ride through...More
