In-laws wanted to try a local place as this was their first visit to our new home in GA. My father-in-law had the country fried steak and could cut it with his fork. You have choice of white or brown gravy. He got the white gravy. My mother-in-law got the steak loaf (meatloaf) she liked it. My son got the... More

I tried this restaurant several years ago and was not impressed, at all. I recently decided to give it a try again, and I am so very glad I did. My husband and I went there on a date. There was live entertainment, and that girl could really sing. It was fantastic! We got the loaded potato chips appetizer and... More

We were given a restaurant.com gift certificate which we were going to redeem at PJ's. Having never eaten there before, we thought it would be a good opportunity to try it. I checked multiple times over a period of a couple of months and they were always out of the 25-dollar certificates, so finally we got the 10-dollar certificates. I... More

The place we wanted to go too was closed but this place was open so we tried it. The Paul's chips appetizer was great. The entrees we got were good but nothing to write home about. I wouldn't tell anyone not to go here but I wouldn't go out of the way for it either.

My husband and I stopped here for a late lunch and enjoyed it very much. The dining area was not crowded when we arrived (around 3:45 on a Friday) but quickly filled up. The live music was a nice touch and the food was very good. Our server was a sweet young lady that wsa avery attentive. I have read... More

The dining room was about 1/4 full when we arrived on a Wednesday evening shortly after 6 pm. The tables were sticky when we sat down. Our table of seven was served at different times as the main course was gradually brought out over about 20 minutes. The 1st person was almost finished before the last person was served... no...

...is exactly what this place is. They messed up my order, replaced it without apology but really didn't seem to care much that I wasn't that happy. Truth is I felt like I was nothing more than a "tip" to my server and I never saw a manager on the floor. Service was slow and the food was just ok.

I had lunch here with some friends that were attending an all day meeting nearby. We had a time limit, which we told our server when we sat down. It look 45 minutes to get our lunches. I am not sure what the delay was. Our food was good though.

Locally owned and operated. If you don't see it on the menu, they will do what they can to accommodate you. The food, service and atmospher are excellent.

The food is good and staff are very pleasant, they had live entertainment on this Saturday night after 8 pm, the artist was local and she had a couple of supporters; therefore, it turned an ordinary day into a special night. Will dine again soon.
