The fried chicken all you can eat meal was delicious and reasonably priced. The bisucits and apple butter the best I've ever tasted. Friendly staff and great service. On Sunday you may have a long wait time.

My family had the all you can eat Chicken and it was very good. It also comes with corn, green bean, mashed potatoes and 2 types of gravy. It is served home style in an iron skillet. it will run you $10.99 plus $1 for a white meat. Was worth it. great service as well. I will be back.

They have certainly grown and changed over the years, I remember when they were just a small store on the side of the road! I went recently with my wife and had an awesome chicken salad sandwich. All together the bill was under 20 bucks. We've gone in the past and had the bottomless chicken and dumplings and also the... More

Exceedingly disappointed. I am visiting the area from California and I dropped in on the country store for the locally grown peaches. What I found was they would only sell the peaches in peck and half peck baskets! I did not want that many and didn't have a budget for $15 half peck basket. They sell individual apples, oranges, melons,... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about your recent experience at our farm. I am very sorry for the experience you did have. We generally sell our peaches loose in the store, we had a little lapse in communication resulting in loose peaches not being available yesterday. Most folks buy our peaches in the peck... More

The food is very Country style or Family style. They always seem very fast, quick and courteous. The food is very good, very kid friendly and they want to fill you up there.

There were 8 of us. Four had the family style fried chicken. It was very, very salty. The mashed potatoes were okay. The green beans had not flavor. The corn was okay. The little fried biscuits and the applebutter are worth the trip to Belleville. The service was very slow on the day we were here. You must pay your... More

Stopped by with my daughter during a bike ride for breakfast. Everything was fine until we received the bill. Since we were on a bike ride I only had plastic with me and I was informed that the card machine had been broken that morning. Fortunately I was able to call my spouse for cash and he was close by.... More

I will start by saying we arrived for breakfast on a Sunday so I may have experienced a longer wait time that most other days. We had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated for our party of 7. We understood until we were seated in a large room with only one other party sitting there and empty large... More
