I can speak for this one and one in Panama City. The big thing for me is that they serve chicken gizzards! They are hard to find in a restaurant. The good news is that I can find gizzards here much easier than anywhere else.

This resturaunt has been closed by the health dept. 3 times in the last 2 years...and you want to eat there??? I had to clean the grease coated on the table before I could even put my glass on it. You know it's bad when there are un known objects in your water glass. You can always check the health... More

I was thrilled to see that after 9 years this place was still there. I love their Fried Green Tomatoes, Blackberry Cobbler and chicken fried steak! Great staff- friendly, attentive and efficient. I was in town for 4 days and ate dinner here 3 nights.

This place is not too expensive and the service is usually pretty fast. My favorite thing to order is the the chicken and dumplings which always come out hot. The dumplings are big and when you sprinkle a bit of pepper, the meal is perfect. The prices aren't too high and the servers are usually friendly. The menu has a... More

This is hands down, one of the most friendly places. Our waitress was Olivia but all of the staff here are genuine, respectful, and fun. The food is delicious and traditional with cheap prices. Most everything comes with two sides and a choice of bread for no more than $8! The chicken sandwich and whitefish are my two favorites. You... More

I have been going here for years. My Dad loved the place and got me hooked. I love the basic food that they serve. The Turnip greens are great. Service is good. If you like good basic food this is the place.

The dumplings are cooked in a slow cooker by the backdoor with no lid on it. If you are smart....take a look at the kitchen. Yuk. You will not want to eat there ever. I personally saw people coming in and out of the back door next to the dumplings being cooked on the floor with no lid. Makes me... More

Went here after my uncle’s wake to eat with family. Interesting decor, large portions and very reasonable prices. Food will never be Zagat 5 star but for fun evening out with family it was a good fit. Just remember food choices in Niceville are odd to say the least, the top rated restaurant in town is currently as I write... More
