Delicious

Stopped here while traveling home. Six of us ate - we ordered a variety of items: soup, sandwiches, grits, pancakes and eggs. Everything was delicious. Service was a tad slow... But then again most things down South run at a slower pace than we are used to! Haha

We've stopped here several times before when traveling in the area. Never had a problem until today. My husband ordered a cheese/steak philly sandwich. It came minus the cheese and did not have a pickle with it as the menu stated. I got the big breakfast. The eggs were so greasy they were shiny. The ham was so over-cooked it... More

Great food! It took a while to get to the table and all of our meals came at different times but we still ate together. It's a lot like a cheaper Cracker Barrel but the environment was friendly as well as the staff.

Good home cooking. Courteous service. Pleasant environment. Lots of locals gather for all three meals. Easy off and on I-75 @ exit 76.

Breakfast was not so good at lunch time. I saw plates of fried fish and chicken that I would have preferred. Feels like you are dining in someone's house somehow, which is neat. I really wanted to like it, so I will try again when passing through.

If you have been looking for food like Mama cooked, this is where you want to go. It is good old fashioned cooking. A great place to go for lunch. They are always busy. There are lots of hand crafted items to look at and purchase also.

We ate here today for the first time and we were not pleased at all. The server while nice was extremely slow. They weren't busy either. The fried chicken was barely edible. The mashed potatoes were instant. The inside of the place just wasn't very clean. I walked in the bathroom and walked right back out. We were not happy... More

I eat here on a regular basis, because organizations use the facilities, I would not eat here is you have kids. There is no kids menu. Food is over priced and not really all that. Tables have that dirty feel, bathrooms have a sewer gas smell. Just not pleasant.

Hamburger was just a frozen patty. I thought their food would be more homemade. Even the pies where frozen. Service was friendly but slow. Over all just average
