Good home cooking

If you want great home cooking like grandma made (assuming your grandma a good old fashioned southern cook) Geneva's is well worth the visit. The food is freshly prepared and great. The service was excellent. Oh and the prices are plain low. What more can I say?

My family has frequented this establisment many times over the years and a few times we have been disappointed. But most times the portions are adequate and tasty. Its worth giving a try... given their sparse open times.

The four of us arrived, apparently before the cook, at 11:45 AM. We ordered fried chicken and sides, and our food came out in 5 minutes. Everything on the plate had been warmed up, not freshly cooked. And even then, it came out at room temperature or cooler. The so-called fried okra was mushy and also warmed over; I did... More

Been there a few times and never thought to review. Has the ambiance of a mobile home. The service is excellent the food is as good as it gets if you like old style southern cooking.

First the food is fresh and prepared by Ms Geneva herself and priced right. She's been the owner operator for close to 30 years. Pleasant and focused on the customer. Ms Sue - server - did a wonderful job of juggling a full breakfast crowd. We were dining our first morning there and all the locals came in and would... More

We ate here for breakfast while visiting Rock City. Most everything was edible. Some more than others. Gravy was gross. My daughter literally begged me not to have to eat it. Fast food would have been preferable. Waitress was pleasant but slow.

My wife and I visited Cloudland Canyon State Park at the end of September 2014. We were told from the office personnel at the park about this resturant and had a dinner and two breakfast there. Really good food and good company. Would recommend to others and will be back on our 2nd visit to the park. The Cooks

I'm diabetic, I went into a low-blood sugar situation. I had been joking and having a great banter with our waiter when all of a sudden it hit me like a ton of bricks, low blood sugar. I seriously asked for an OJ and some honey. The waiter didn't miss a beat; he immediately brought both to me. I quickly... More

A small meat and three type of place, we had plans to eat at Canyon Grill, but didn't figure out that you have to call first to reserve a seat--we were told it would be at least a 45 minute wait (at 6pm !) so we scooted on down the road to Genevas where we got fried chicken and pork... More

The food was good and the prices were low. Nice family run business. The variety is not huge on the menu but everybody can find something they will enjoy
