The people who own the restaurant are very, very nice and hospitable. However, the food is mediocre. At best. Every time I've eaten there, the food has arrived cold. The chicken fingers taste frozen. The salad isn't always fresh. And most everything is fried, so the menu doesn't have too many healthy choices. Service is nice, but slow. I would... More

The best beef tips, mashed potatoes and fried green tomatoes ever! They positively melted in my mouth. We enjoyed talking to Rob Carlile and he was happy to share the secret to cooking the beef tips - what a nice surprise! We look forward to eating there again. Thanks for the great food and service.

Green Tomatoes and Fried Chicken on the buffet are outstanding! Chance was a great waitress. Can't wait to stop back by on our next trip to Scottsboro.

When they relocated, we tried them again. The first time we tried the buffet and it was unappetizing. The next time and final... More

Let me recommend a restaurant with an extremely nice atmosphere, terrific tasting food and down home friendly service. Gretta & her husband are two wonderful people with a great outlook. They are from outstanding families that support them in their restaurant service. I believe they have made it a goal to satisfy their customers and to give them the best... More

Tonight the specialty was prime rib. My husband loves prime rib but he was very disappointed. The prime rib was cooked medium but it was tough, had to chew and chew in order to swallow so he finally just gave up and left half of it on his plate. My pork chop was greasy and also very tough. Tomato pie... More
