Sometimes a specific location of restaurant chain somehow stands out with folks. Well, this one does so for us. Whenever we travel to the Upstate South Carolina area, we cross over into North Carolina just to visit this restaurant. The food and service have both been consistently very good, and we always look forward to coming here.

We took members of our out of town crew there for breakfast. We were seated quickly and the waitress was fast friendly and professional. Is there a restaurant rule that mandates all butter be served rock-hard? Just like in the movie the Cowboys, where Roscoe Lee Browne's character said, the food was hot, brown, and lots of it. That pretty... More

We have eaten there alot....with family close by and on our way to Florida. The service is excellant and as usual the food tastes like down home. I love browsing in the shopping area up front. I always find something I just have to have.

The service was very good, the food is always good but I am careful what I get. It is southern food and I like to eat healthy. I like the veggie plate, potato, sweet potato, an broccoli. There are all kinds of foods to get but I know I can find good healthy food and it is a nice atmosphere.... More

Fish fillet overcooked way too much grease and butter on mac and cheese and grits. Sounded like a grade school cafeteria

Arrived to our destination exhausted. Ordered take out by phone. They said it would be ready at 7pm. Here we stand at 7:30 pm. Still no food. Cashier keeps telling us they are bagging it. Been telling us that for 15 minutes. Poor. No excuse.

Stopped here after along day on the road and found the food was great. Service was a little slow, but we were there just as the evening meal was getting up to full speed. I had a four veggie plate and it was very good. The other driver had the hamburger steak and he was bragging on it. This is... More

I had my family of 5. We were on our way to Bryson City. It was very busy because it was Thanksgiving weekend and Sunday. I didn't feel like the wait was extremely long. We had plenty to look at while waiting. The food was great for all of us. I'm not always a fan of this restaurant but this... More

Overall Plentiful and Delicious food. I promised my son I would try to make the meatloaf at home. (The excellent rating is for the meatloaf platter.) Corn bread could be better (dry). Grilled chicken tenders needed to be trimmed more carefully of grizzle. Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes and Green beans and Apple Pecan Pie fabulous! Server started out great but... More

I have been here probably a dozen of times over the years and this was by far the worst experience I have had dining out. We had 4 adults and 3 small children, so we weren't asking mg much. The waitress began the evening by saying that they were short staffed, so have patience. We told her we understood, but... More
