Southern Food

Very Good Southern food. Family that visit enjoy eating here. Sunday's the serve a Full Turkey W/Stuffing, Friday nights enjoy Prime Rib or a Salmon Supper. We Love their Chicken Fried Steak! The gravy is Outstanding! But save room for the Possum Pie or take it home, you'll Love It!!

the old Old South is gone and new management has come in. They have actually started watching staff and food exiting the kitchen. The quality has picked up and you can get a pretty decent meal.

Everything was great! The sausage gravy, grits, sausage patties, biscuits and eggs. Forget the places along the interstate. Come into town and enjoy a delicious breakfast.
