Served family style, with refills upon request, you will not leave hungry. Includes beverage and dessert. Service was great and facility very clean and... More

We got in and served very quick. The mashed potatoes were excellent as well as the chicken. Vegetables were average. Desserts were good we got the chocolate cake it was to die for also the ham biscuits were good! Alittle over priced though.

This restaurant is an institution in Boone. It is family style dining and you do not go away hungry. The concept is nice in that you get 2 meats plus ham biscuits and many vegetables. Most of the food does not taste homemade ( similar to Cracker Barrel), but still good. The management should take the salads with the ranch... More

Great food, southern style in a family style restaurant. Prices are reasonable and families are welcome. Things move slower in the South, so be prepared to sit and relax. This is not a fast paced New York style restaurant. If thats what you want, stay in the northern states. The South is about relishing your food and relaxing with family... More

We went to eat breakfast and were there 30 min after they opened, and overheard the hostess telling another customer that the wait was due to some of the staff just now getting there. We waited about 20 min. to be seated and there was only 3-4 parties ahead of us. The food was only average and when we left... More

If you like southern comfort food, this is the place for you. Period-dressed wait staff that take great care of everything you need adds to the charming atmosphere of the restaurant. The food is wonderful, and there is a lot of it! If you don't want to stand in line, I'd suggest showing up early before they open. Otherwise, be... More

We went there after several recommendations. We loved the servers there. They are very attentive and quick. Food was good but not great. You get your money's worth and you won't go hungry. However, some of it was so salty that it made us sick afterwards.
