My family and I have eaten at Countryside many times. I guess you would say we are regulars. The food is excellent. The service always outstanding. Very rare to wait, the regular wait staff can't be beat hands down. I have only one complaint. Keep politics out of the place. If you are proud of a certain visitor, take that... More

We have been eating here about every other week for a number of years, but later the food quality has fallen off and the wait staff is slow. This had never been a problem until about 2 months ago. We of course find our own seat and the last two times have waited and waited for some one to notice... More

We keep going back to Countryside for several reasons. Their staff makes you feel welcome from the time you walk in the door until you depart. The service is quick and reliable. Partner spied the smoked turkey on the menu and immediately made it her favorite after a bite or two. It is on their new smart choice menu which... More

The waitresses are very slow and tend to over look coustomers. It was very annoying both times we went. The food's not great. Don't plan on going back anytime soon.

We have eaten here more than a dozen times. The food is okay, but nothing to rave about. I've had better barbecue at Smokey Que's.

We had good food and service. We had 6 people and they quickly set up a table for us. I had a salad and sweet potato fries, both were good. Other guests had pulled pork and chicken tenders and said their meal was tasty.

My Grandson (4 years old) and I had dinner here and the food was good. The daily special was pot roast and it was delicious. The huge portion of roast was served with mashed potatoes and gravy, coleslaw, green beans, corn and hush puppies. The corn was especially good and the meat was very tender and flavorful. My grandson had... More

We accidentally visited this restaurant a couple of years ago and now we go there whenever we can and take our family there when they come to visit. It's a 30 minute drive from our house but we make the trip often. It doesn't look fancy. The outside is kind of plain and the inside is dark paneled walls. That's... More

I have eaten many good meals at Countryside. They not only have tasty pulled pork barbecue, they also have delicious, tender smoked chicken, good fried shrimp, and excellent chicken tenders. They also have good side dishes as well, including slaw, home fries, corn, green beans and baked sweet potatoes. Their hush puppies are nice and crispy too. The prices are... More
