Nice variety of selections from sandwiches, soups, dinner platters, hamburgers.... and you have to try the Broccoli salad. Staff is friendly and prices are great! Be sure to take home some of the fresh bread or Pimento Cheese!!

A great place to visit and eat. It is a mini-Cracker Barrel. Loaded with lots of candy and toys and very good food.

My family and I stopped by for lunch. We loved the laid-back atmosphere and food, as well as the service. It is connected to a general store that sells homemade fudge and a variety of baked goods. We will be back.

This restaurant makes you feel like you are at your grandmothers house for Sunday dinner. Good old home style cooking. The green beans were from a can but other then that the food was yummy.
