If your looking for great home cooking, this is the place. Southern comfort food and family style. Full bar. Fried chicken is the best. Be prepared to be there a while as it gets packed and service slows down but well worth the wait.

What a treat! An historic stage stop still looking old yet modernized. I had catfish and it was delicious. The service was great and the ambience superb.

The family style dining on platters of fried chicken and bowls of mashed potatoes, corn & green beans make this a road trip stop worth making. It is the site of and old stage coach stop & I bet Abe loved the dang chicken too.
