3 1/2 Stars: Name change (now JW Reed's) but same folks running it. Still have good veggies, fried chicken, and iced tea. Have added a few higher-priced menu items (i.e. moving towards "casual dining" and slightly away from "country cooking"), but haven't tried those yet. Have also been serving alcohol for past year or so. Not a radical change, but... More

Stopped in for lunch while on vacation. Food was ok. Price of lunch was great until we got the bill and saw they charged $4.50 for a side salad. It was just lettuce, one tomato wedge and one cucumber slice. This is a salad most placed would charge $1.95 for. Service was good.

As a New Englander traveling through Georgia for the first time, I was very excited for biscuits. Being here for a month now, I have yet to find a place with homemade biscuits, but all ive eaten are premade packaged biscuits (you can tell bc they all look the same.) I come to Ma Goochs for breakfast and they bring... More

This was our first visit. I knew it had to be good. The parking lot was packed Sunday. The chicken and dressing are out of this world. The best home cooking I've had in a long time. We will go back and recommend this place to all our friends.

Our family visits about once a month - usually for dinner but we love the lunch too! This is the only place to go if you want home cooked veggies or a great tasting steak. Owners are great!

This restaurant has been here as long as I can remember. Seems to not be as good as I remember " way back then" but still a great bargain and you can get beer and wine now if you so desire.

As a child, it was one of my favorite restuarants when we ventured towards Cleveland. My husband and I stopped there for what I had hoped would be a quick meal. It was anything but "quick" Service could have used some polishing and the food was...ok..... Needless to say I was disappointed in what it had become.

One star is too good for this place! The food is greasy and not good at all. The owner is terrible and treats his staff and customers like dirt. I'll never set foot in this place again.
