“HIdden gem to enjoy without the crowd”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

You can have a nice meal with your family in the dining room or an adult bevarge in the bar with some karaoke. It's a treat to eat out on the porch at sunset.

“Consistently Good Food and Great Service!”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

We eat here about once a month and have always had a great meal in a nice QUIET atmosphere. It's a good place to meet friends because we can have a nice relaxing conversation without having to rush or listen to loud music, etc. Our favorite server is Linda who is very friendly and efficient. Recommended items are the onion rings, salmon, center cut steak, mushroom chicken, philly cheesesteak sandwich, & collard greens. Soups are homemade and delicious. Monday night is Senior Discount night and you get a free meal if it is your birthday. Open every evening but Sunday.

“I ordered one steak and got another!”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

Well, first time for evwerything.
I ordered a Pilgreen's Sirlion of 12 ozs.
When the Steak came it looked small. Then the Bill came and it was listed as the Kansas City 8 oz Steak. The price was cheaper too.
I guess because I was with a group of 80 year olds they thought I could not eat a bigger steak.
They gave the group a 20% Senior Discount but added back a 20% TIP!
They must think that McDonough is New York City!!
But the salad was nice and the steak was good and the home fries were good and the rolls were great. Only thing was they said they only had caffine free tea and then said they were out of sweet tea.
It was a Monday night but come on the Wholesale company can deliver 7 days a week!!!
It not Lee St nor is it Hwy 54. But it got Pilgreen's on the sign.
It 80 years old and starting to show its age.
By the way the roof had about 20 Turkey Vultures sitting upon it. Great welcome for older guests.
The wait staff was part old and part new, got it I got the new, she started out taking only the drink order and the older was taking both drink and food too. Got the salad and beofre I could finish the food was there and no spare room on the table to set it aside till I finished the salad. Oh, and still have not been ask if I wanted desert.
After I finished the salad the dish sat on the table for a while also.
So the two dots of five was a gift this time. It had been about 8 years since I ate at the old Morrow location. Now I know why.

“would rather go somewhere else”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

Food was just ok. Hope they have brought in new management. They were just rude. We all agreed we would not be back. I don't like to leave negative comments, but they need to realize why customers are not returning.
