Ordered the Southern fried chicken...which was overdone, looked old & crusty (I swear it must have come from Kentucky Fried Chicken a week ago), the potatoes tasted like they came from a tub (the kind you buy at Publix & heat up) with dark brown gravy, the broccoli was warm but nothing special, and nothing special about their dinner roll....

This is a great place to get wings! Also they have really good burgers. This is casual dining and reasonable in price.

Egg salad on wrong bread, Ham Sandwich on stale bread (they said it got toasted...NOT ). Waitress was great, long wait for 3 sandwiches. Over the... More

The ganache wad a dark chocolate and not overly sweet and cut the sweetness of the whipped cream. The waffle was a heartier mix anf filling. Next time I'm getting the chicken and waffles they...

One in our party ordered a turkey wrap and was served a club instead. It was just a bad day for the server and not the usual... More

Nothing fancy, just good eats! Service was good and waitress knew her specials and menu. We like mom and pop type places and this was definitely that type place.
