Open more than 20 years. Food is a little too Southern for my tastes, too much salt, oil, and sugar. The biscuits are heavy. That said, the food is tasty and filling. Good people watching.

The food was really good. I had scrambled eggs, chicken sausage, grits, and chicken sausage gravy/biscuit. The best watermelon/pineapple mimosa ever and orange spice tea. Hubby had a salmon scramble eggs w/grits, and a Blue Moonade...a Bluemoon beer and lemonade, refreshing! The place is quaint,...More

The place was packed! The wait was 45 minutes but across the street was a market to browse through. After the wait, we were seated, waited on and served in a timely manner. The good was awesome and worth the money. The prices were superb!
