Great family restaurant

We enjoyed our meal with local friends who recommended this place as we traveled through. The catfish was great. The atmosphere is far from elegant but if you are looking for a good family restaurant this is it. Get an early bird special if you want to save!

First time going, last week with my mom. She told me the food here was really good. This used to be THE restaurant to go to in Dothan, in years gone by. First thing I notice when walking in the door was the smell of old, dirty carpet. This was a real turn off for me, but I decided to... More

Even though we dined on a Friday night between 5 and 6 p.m., we were seated almost immediately, my husband is using a walker and has a big boot on his left foot, but we still were seated in an area that was well lit, comfortable, and not in the way for the flow of traffic. Gus had the Onion... More

My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner at the Old Mill and it was wonderful. All of our families really enjoyed the food. The shrimp and steak were awesome. My parents loved it so much, I purchased them a gift certificate to go again for Christmas. The reason I didn't give it all around 5's is because it could... More

We ate here in a hope of trying to find a decent local restaurant. Greatly disappointed! We walked in and I thought I was eating at the Moose Lodge circa 1982. The place is old, dated and run down. There was old equipment just sitting in the reception area. The food took forever to get to us and it was... More

My wife and I belong to what we have come to call "The Birthday Club". It's an excuse for a bunch of seniors to get together for lunch and social networking once a month. The person {or persons} gets to choose where we will have lunch that particular month. The birthday celebrants get cards and gifts from the others attending... More

Asked for crackers to have with salad, waitress stated "we are not suppost to bring them out unless you ask for them". We have eatin here numerous times, always there was a basket of crackers on every table. Must be cutting back.

The food was good, if a little quirky. A lot of that was just the local twist on things. Not fancy, but nice place.

Plain but clean restaurant with excellent health score. In a business lunch we had fried crab claws that were fresh, lightly breaded , flash fried and served hot and moist. Another in the group had a shrimp poor boy with seasoned shrimp served on fresh bread. It was served with fries. The third person had a mixed salad with fresh... More
