The meal was good but the 3 berry pie was excellent. Good service. It is right downtown and gets really busy but the servers handled the crowd well.

Came here today for a light lunch with family. Food was delicious, served quickly, and fairly inexpensive. Service was great. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Also, ask if a round table is available for a fun surprise!

Fantastic food served hot and with a smile. From the honey-butter cornbread on, fantastic home-style cooking, the way mama used to make it. From burgers to steaks, they got it. Fried Green tomatos, yummy.
