Buffet style, home cooking. The night we were there, the entrees were pot roast. Baked chicken and fried catfish. Lots of sides, salad bar and dessert. We always try to seek out the local favorites. I think we found it!

We visited this restaurant twice while visiting Cave City. It was exactly what we wanted. Delicious home cooked southern food. The banana pudding was excellent! Couldn't be happier to have found this place and will return every time we are in town!

Don't let the entrance fool you, go ahead and take a seat. The food is great. Catfish and buffet were excellent! Peach cobbler and ice cream for desert. Yum
