Visited for lunch on a weekday. Restaurant was busy but the staff was great....a smile and a casual greeting goes a long way! Server was efficient and friendly; food was typical CB and the cashier was rushed,but on top of the situation. No complaints.

Server very friendly, food came out very fast. I love shopping in the store and found great items 25% off. I had the fried shrimp, hushpuppies, fries, coleslaw, soup beans, and biscuits and could barely eat half of the food all for $10.

As we sat down, we overheard a couple at the table next to us complaining to the waitress and asking several times to see the manager of the restaurant. We... More
