The sandwiches came with crinkle-cut fries and a pickle spear and were very good. We were disappointed that they no longer served the omelettes we had enjoyed on a previous trip. It was a bit scary that they had a sign that you may have to wait up to 45 minutes to be served your food after ordering, but we did not have to wait that long at the time we went - 11:00 a.m. - only about 15 minutes. Service was good. You can sit outside overlooking the rushing river, or stay inside under the cool air, which we enjoyed since it was a humid day. I had the smothered grilled chicken sandwich without BBQ sauce (they allowed me to substitute mayo) and hubby had one of the burgers with everything on it (slaw, chili, etc.). Very good - cooked to order so it was hot and fresh - I can understand the sign when it gets busy in there since they cook it fresh!

We visited Genny's for lunch, based on some information that the locals go here. There was an option to sit outside along the river or sit inside. It was a hot day, so we stayed inside. The interior decor needs some updating. There was a hand written sign advising you that there is a 30-40 wait time after your order is taken to get your food. I had the Bacon and Cheddar Burger. The burger and fries are $8.99. The burger was good, but for the cost it was high. As far as drinks, like coca cola etc, you only get one refill. The service was average. The total bill for my wife and I was $32.00, and am trying to figure out why. The cost is high for what you get. I think I will pass on Genny's for any future visit.

My wife and I ate supper here on a trip to the area because we were looking for a meat and vegetable style meal. Seating you was quick and friendly by the waitress. I ordered country style steak with gravy, mashed potatoes with gravy and fried okra. The vegetables were very good and the country steak was ok although it was a piece of salisbury steak and not what I was expecting to be country steak. My wife ordered the chicken tenders with mashed potatoes and pinto beans with onions. Everything on her plate was very good. They have a good selection of other foods also. We went back two days later for breakfast and had a sausage/cheese omlet with hashbrowns and a cheese omlet with grits and they were very good. Prices were a little high but expected for a tourist town. We would return here next time we visit the area.
