Good Food and Good Service

We had to have a place to eat between shows. This restaurant had a very good selection and the food we had was very good. I had soup and a sandwich. Our service was fast and we had plenty of time to get to our next show.

Atmosphere and staff were great. The comfort food was some of the best I've had in a restaurant. Great place to eat. Ask for the round table for a fun experience!

Great food and the waitress was very good. Would definitely recommend it especially to families. Nice menu for dinner but didn't try it.

We were hoping for food that was more home cooked, but were disappointed in the limited vegatable selection. There is a good variety and the serving size was ample. There was nothing extraordinary about this restaurant.

We had 4 generations of our family at the restruant. The food was better than your average comfort food joint. We all enjoyed the meal. The waitress was attentive and helpful.

Service was quick and excellent. Food was generous and delicious. Best strawberry/rhubarb pie ever tasted. They are known for their corn bread which is awesome and tastes like cake instead of bread. Yum!

My family loved the place. Maybe it was what I ordered but it just didn't seem all that special to me... Just average. Things that were pretty neat was the atmosphere and the service. They offer discounts to veterans as well. Prices are reasonable. We had to wait quite a while on our food and I didn't think it was... More

Service was great but the food was ok. A little over priced for what you get. Our waitress was great. I felt bad for her working there since she was so good. Food came out fast.

They got 18 people in quickly. Our waitress was awesome and nice. Our food was not that great. The fried green tomatoes were good but no one else seemed to love their food.
