You will like eating at this fine establishment. The food is great and the atmosphere is fine. I recommend the restaurant. It can be a little slow in getting your meal but otherwise the place is highly recommended

“25 Cents @ for Tap Water”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Having eaten at this clean and attractive locally owned family restaurant before we were very disappointed in the poor service, and surprise on our bill when we did not order a beverage with our lunch of Asian Chicken Salad with Mango "Vinaigret" and side order sweet potato fries times 2. After taking our order, the waitress returned and said they did not have Asian Chicken but in a salad.....apparently she failed to read the menu when I pointed to what we wanted in the Salad section. Then she said "that does not come with sweet potato fries".....that was also on the same page as the salads under "sides".......just maybe her first day at work?

When salads came, they did not have the toasted coconut as menu described, so asked about it. I received some, then gal asked if my wife wanted some too....yes, and back to the kitchen to get some more.

Salad, finally, was delicious with the glazed chopped chicken, pineapple, cranberries, lettuce, tomatoes....and toasted coconut. Fries warm, NOT over baked....not hot from the oven.

We finished our meal off with an "interesting bill"............1 water x 2....... $.0.25 each We did not order a beverage. Did not seen on the menu a charge for water, tap or otherwise.

Paid the bill of $23.11 and told the cashier "This is the first time I've ever paid for a glass of water." She laughed.......I did not. We will not return. (This is in a small, southern town.....personally, I feel, a total lack of "Southern Hospitality" shown) .

The food was excellent and tasted great. The service was very friendly and accommodating. Servings were very generous.
We would select this restaurant again on return visits to Waynesboro.
