They're often out of many menu items. Service is horrid - took 20 minutes to have our drink order taken, then an hour later - still no food! Roaches en residence! UGH!!!! WE necessasarily left! McDonalds was preferable to this disappointing experience!

I have been to Ma Gooch's quite a few times in my travels to mountains, Helen, Babyland General, etc. The country cooking is always good and the service ranges from good to just downright entertaining, as the last time. It is not a destination. It is a reasonable place to stop on the way.

This restaurant is a local favorite. Ma gootch is long gone but the food still is satisfying country fare. Breakfast has all the regular menu items one would expect and a flood of coffee. Their lunch buffet is good and the wait staff is friendly, and usually busy. I have noticed they have specials posted on their marquee out front... More

My wife and I decided to try JW Reed's since it was supposed to be a "new" restaurant. Well.... I don't think it was new. It looked pretty old and lacked character. We had tried Ma Gooch's several months ago and decided never to return. So, anyway.... We ordered breakfast; my wife also ordered coffee although she never likes restaurant... More

We were trying to find somewhere for breakfast and decided to give JW Reed's a try. The layout of the place is slightly odd and quite a few tables had not been cleared but there were several large groups in so we stayed. The food, when it came, was really good - great French toast, biscuits etc and it all... More

A friend and I decided to try this restaurant last night. The name is no longer Ma Gooch's, but rather JW Reed's. I had the blackened mahi mahi with mashed potatoes and coleslaw. My friend got grilled salmon. Upon request, we got rolls as bread. We drank draft beer with our meals. The food was excellent. Our server, Whitley, was... More

The staff was very friendly and the service was fast, but the food was mediocre. We were hungry and wanted to try something new, but not something I would go out of my way for.

Food not very good. Canned. Overpriced for what is available. Misses the mark in trying to be a "home cooking" restaurant.

We always made it a point to eat here numerous times a year but once they change the way things were done nothing is the same. It was so wonderful to go through the line get your food ( and it was wonderful food) then seat yourself. The Fried Chicken was always so good, now you have to wait almost... More
