Neat throw-back atmosphere with great service and friendly people. Went there for lunch and had shrimp and grits. Also had fried pickles...so good! Wanted caramel cake for dessert but they didn't have it that day. Very laid-back attitude and the food is homecooked and delicious. I will definitely return!

I love the vegetables and not many places have chicken livers. They are a little slow serving you but it's worth the wait. My grand kids love the chicken and waffles! And I think the wait staff is wonderful.

I loved the home made vegetables. Great selection, seasoned well. The corn bread in a pone was very good. MY friend had the chicken livers and enjoyed them too. The fried green tomato's were some of the best I have had. We will go back.

We had a friend recommend Salt & Pepper Restaurant so we decided to give it a try. They advertise Soul Food. The staff were very friendly and the waitress was great at keeping our drinks filled. My husband ordered the fried chicken and I had the Dirty South Hamburger which humongous and included a fried green tomato and jalapeno pimento... More

My wife went here for a couples night out. It turned out to be a disaster. 1) It took over an hour to be seated. 2) the hostess was rude 3) the waitress forgot about us. It took half an hour before she took our order. 4) It took another half an hour to get our food. 5) We ordered... More

I am not the best person to review this eatery in all ways, as I always eat their pan fried chicken livers, which are to die for! You can tell they are fresh, hand breaded (with flour, just like Grandma did it)....and they have never been over cooked......just cooked to perfection. They are lightly seasoned and ready to eat when... More

The food and decor are really great but the service can be lacking at certain times. The busiest times seem to be the times when they don't have enough people waiting tables. Also getting food to go can be a long wait too. Overall I would eat there again but not sure if I'd go there with a large group.... More

Okay, you pull up to a free standing building with a few Harley's in front. Go into the restaurant, there are momentos all over the walls, and not really all that appealing. I ordered the chicken and waffles and my daughter ordered a pork chop with some vegetables. The chicken literally melts in your mouth, and the coating was crisp... More

I have eaten here 3 times now and have sampled 3 different entrees: fried chicken, shrimp and grits, and chicken & dumplings. All delicious as well as the sides. My husband has also had meatloaf and BBQ pulled pork and he enjoyed both. I really don't think there is anything here you could go wrong with. Except maybe not having... More

We have visited numerous times ,and always great tasting food. Our favorite entree is the fried chicken, it truly tastes like my mother and grandmother used to fry up in their big iron skillet. Sides change, sometimes skillet fried potatoes(yum) or potato cakes,etc. We always feel welcome in the friendly, relaxed atmosphere with their great staff. Just wish they were... More
