Loved the atmosphere. The staff was awesome. They were nice and very helpful. The food was average. I must say we didn't order anything spectacular, just a blt and fish and chips. It wasn't the best or the worst.

The food is good and everyone is friendly. Prices are fair. The corn muffins are excellent. As is the pie.

Great comfort food - southern style. Service is very good, friendly and smiling. Just like having a home cooked meal, nothing fancy, just real good food at a reasonable price.

This restaurant generally has ok everyday food. Nothing exceptional, but on our last trip in Dec. 2014, we waited 30 minutes for a table...we finally got seated at 10:30 AM. By this time my kids were wanting lunch because they only had 3 choices for children in the breakfast menu. Even though it was 30 minutes from 11am, they refused... More

It had three of the biggest chicken tenders I've ever had. They were delicious. It also had a large amount of sweet potato fries and they brought out a dish of pineapple/coconut... More

When we informed the waitress of this she brought out a 2nd... More

Great comfort food, reasonably priced. The service is friendly and efficient. They have the most amazing corn bread -- served with most of the meal entries. The restaurant is located in a mini mall with shops and the IMAX theater.
