Great food and atmosphere. Lots of entrees offered and good selection of sides. All 10 of us said didn't know where you could go for better food. Service was efficient and pleasant. Prices very reasonable. Homemade decadent desserts.

The prices for the daily specials are $7.25 and this is very reasonable for the good quality and quantity of food. The appetizer we just got (fried green tomatoes) was $7.99 !! I did not see this on the menu, but was told they offered...More

Overall this is a very friendly family restaurant in a traditional fashion that looks like it didn't change a bit since it opened decades ago. The food is simple but tasty, nothing extravagant or exotic. It may come off a bit on a bland side...More

We use this restaurant a lot for catering lunches at doctors offices. They always deliver on time, never forget anything, and the food is delicious. Consistency and dependability is so important when catering these lunches. We will continue to use this restaurant.

We went for lunch. We visited based on the name thinking we were going to experience an innovative and maybe even quirky restaurant and menu. The restaurant is large and extremely clean and tidy. It is decorated in a more "formal dinner party" decor. The...More

They need to rename this place. Their food is fine I suppose, but there is nothing different about it, I could make it at home on any regular night. It is safe and boring and just fine. The name is what disappoints. Sweet Tea is...More

This is a beautiful restaurant with extremely good food, attentive and polite waitresses, pleasant music and a pleasing decor. We were there with a bus load of people. The tables were set up and waiting for us. The restrooms were clean and beautiful. There was an interesting mix of furniture, paintings, mirrors and painted trays throughout the restaurant. The sweet potato wedges, served with cinnamon sugar, were crisp and delicious, the best I've ever tasted. I'd give this restaurant a very high rating.
