Pass on the gravy

The cod is excellent! Serving sizes are very good too. But, three people had the specials with gravy and most did not even eat it.

Having gone to Cracker Barrel the night before travelling from Florida to Ohio, we thought we would try the Dinner Bell. Big mistake. Water was dripping on my husband from a dirty vent, the food was horrible unless you love a lot of salt, and don't even get me started on the filthy fan that hangs above the tables. Our... More

Although the restaurant is a little shabby looking the food was surprisingly good and the service was great. The price is inexpensive for the quality.

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

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

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.
