Love the atmosphere

This is a great place to go and have lunch. I love the porch seating! The inside is waaaaaay to crowded with random stuff. But the food is wonderful!

I grew up in Williston and this is actually only my second time visiting this restaurant. Both times, I have ordered the same item and it does not disappoint. (See picture). The food here is delicious, the people are neighbors, and the atmosphere just feels like you are going to an old friend's house for lunch. If you have a... More

Crispy chicken is a big favorite served with steemed broccoli, Mac n cheese, corn bread and a salad. $$ plenty of parking. Artsy boutique upstairs tops off this... More

I treated myself for Father's Day even though I was a mom. The prime rib meal came with veggies, corn bread, and a cabbage casserole. I don't know where to start because I'm hungry and my mouth is watering just thinking about that meal. The prime rib was cooked perfectly, medium rare, and it tasted about as good as the... More

Very nice wait staff and they got the order correct and if came quickly. They also had fresh blueberries for sale I. The cooler up front with was a... More

This nice restaurant is stuffed with antique furnishings and good food in downtown Williston, Florida. The menu is loaded up with good southern fare including cheese grits and the speciality of the house, Krispy Baked Chicken. Good service and a pleasant atmosphere. Prices are reasonable.
