Been here on few occasions. Place is always packed. Its an average place with decent food. I'm assuming in a land of francise fast food on every corner a place the actually cooks food gets rave reviews. I had an elastic in my spinach pie once. I'm brave though, I ordered it again another time! It was ok but somewhat... More

Perhaps this small family restaurant tries to offer too much. We've eaten there several times now. The menu offers Greek, Italian, Seafood, and steak to burgers to...something for everyone. We were disappointed in the Greek dishes, and other items we ordered were, well, just fair. They put four small pieces of lettuce on my shrimp plate which I guess was... More

My family and I eat here often. The wait staff are pleasant and always the same as they have little turnover. I like to get the Athens Marinated Beef Strips and recommend you do the same. While you're at it, ask for a side of their banana pudding. You will not be disappointed.

If you are visiting this area and are tired of the chain restaurants or those mediocre ones at local hotels like Embassy Suites, look no further than this quaint place. A varied and delicious menu of Greek, Italian, American, and Southern regional cooking. You can't miss or beat the prices! The always crowded parking lot will give you a clue... More

A gem of a place where the locals eat. Not a fancy place. It's a family restaurant offering good food. I really enjoyed a side of fried pickles. The side of Lima beans were awesome and the mac and cheese is a winner. I had the chopped steak which I also enjoyed. Lindsey provided exemplary service. She acted as though... More

If you have ever drove past, you would have noticed this place is always crowded. And why it shouldn't be. Just perfect family style food. Food is great and service is friendly. Prices are friendly too and the food comes quick too. Worth visiting.

I've given this place several tries. First off, the staff is very friendly and welcoming. The food is pretty good. Nothing amazing just standard family restaurant. And that's my issue. Nothing stands out on the menu. Breakfast is clearly the busiest meal here but I don't understand why. Food is slow coming to the table and it's just OK. Nothing... More

We shared their three egg veggie omelet with hash browns and toast and with coffee and a small side of grits. The meal was great, the restaurant was spotless, and the service was exceptional. The price was almost exactly what you'd pay in other family restaurants in this area. But you'll probably want to leave a little larger tip, the... More

They have a wide range of selections, all prepared traditionally. Good place for wholesome food! Their service is great, and they do a nice job on takeout, if you really want to eat at home!
