If you like home cooked food and plenty of it this is the place for you. I wanted to try the dessert, because they all look delicious but was too full.

I could eat here everyday for every meal! Yes, it's that good! It's all fresh, made-from-scratch tasting deliciousness!

Our family ate here on a Thur. night. The place was packed! Get in line and pick what you want (like a cafeteria) or you can choose one of their special dinner options (they will bring your dinner to the table if you order a special dinner). Each night they offer different selections. They also have fresh made pies. They... More

Ate here a couple of times. I like the meatloaf. Side items seems to be small for the amount they charge. Veggies taste like they were right out of a can.

After wanting to try the Oil Lamp for awhile now I was finally able to. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, the herb chicken was both tender and delicious. The staff were friendly and welcoming. I will be back!

Great home cooking served cafeteria style in a small nondescript building. Wonderful desserts. Not a cheap lunch, but certainly worth going there when visiting the area. Excellent way for conservative females to help support a family and provide a valuable service. I will go back when in the area

The impression before I even got there was a great one! I called the restaurant 10 minutes before they closed. The person answering the phone told me, come on through!!! Most restaurants would have said, we're closing, I've had it happen before with 30 minutes to spare. I got there and walking thru the doors, everyone was welcome to the... More

I would agree the food is OK but not worth the prices. Basic cafeteria set up with serving line. Carry your own tray to a table with plastic table cloth. Expect to pay $11 per person for $5 meal.

This small family owned restaurant is a gem! You'd drive right by it...and if you don't stop..you'll be missing out on a great home cooked meal..cafeteria style as well as a daily special you can order from the grill. Their homemade deserts are to die for, sweet tea is perfect and the employees are so friendly and you never have... More

Restaurant is cafeteria style, go through the line and select what you want to eat. Server was very helpful with suggestions. Husband had roast beef and it was OK, not great. I had catfish and we both thought it was really good. The sides were average, several were cool--not heated well. We went because the reviews were so good, we... More
