The chicken here I'm guessing is roasted...not exactly sure how its prepared but it is great. Good family restaurant...warm friendly staff. I don't live in the Michigan area, but will certain re-visit this place when I return.

Once again we went here with a party of 8. There is always a wait, but it wasn't long at all—only having to wait 20 minutes on a Sunday is almost unheard of! They do tell you all members of your party must be in the restaurant before they'll seat you so we waited an extra 10 minutes for them... More

Hubby and I went to grab a little something to snack on...little being an opinion not portion sizes. I ordered the mini julienne salad...which is a meal in itself. It comes with ham,turkey,cheese,tomato,cucumber and a hard boiled egg. Simply wonderful. I also ordered the wing ding appetizer. Suffice it to say 9 of the 12 large wing dings are now... More

We recently had dinner here on the recommendation of a friend. Glad we did. Portions are HUGE! We had the whole chicken for 2 all white meat... $19.50 includes 4 sides 4 breasts and 4 good sized wings. We were stuffed and had a good bit of leftovers for under $20. Our friends had the bbq ribs and chicken and... More

Here is my disclaimer: This is a family restaurant that serves BBQ. It is NOT a BBQ restaurant. With that said, the broasted chicken and broasted potatoes are very good. The portions are large and satisfying. I have been here several times, but not one of my recommended places to dine.

I have enjoyed many delicious meals here over the years. However it has been more than one year since my last visit. I ordered a carry out that was to order with condiments and eating utensil and carryout bag. The ribs were fatty and the bones gigantic with some lean meat and really could have been cooked longer. I did... More

Where do I even begin to describe this delicious, authentic southern cooking. I tried the Catfish dinner and it was phenomenal and every piece was crunchy with just the right amount of flakiness. The Chicken noodle soup was delicious and the iced tea tasted like it came from down south in Georgia. My sides were collard greens, macaroni and cheese... More
