I go there once in awhile for a early dinner. The food is always good. The service is great. I ordered a full banana cream pie to go. It was so good I had four pieces of it. I will go back.

Had family come to town and was hoping to take them to a nice lunch. I talked up how great the food was and was sadly disappointed and embarrassed. Service was mediocre.

Good old fashioned cooking. From biscuits and gravy to Apple pie and everything in between. Friendly staff. Tom Hanks an his family ate here. Off the main drag, but only by a block.
