Great place to have a family meal - everything was great, not a single complaint, and the cornbread is top shelf for sure! Kids happy, adults happy, everybody happy happy happy. Try not to over eat - portions are large.

The atmosphere was perfect for a January night. There was a fire in the fireplace and a good crowd of folks on a week night enjoying delicious food and conversation. We were seated and our drink order taken in a timely fashion. The wonderful bread basket arrived with butter. Our girls group had spinach and artichoke dip as an appetizer.... More

I have eaten here several years ago and it was fantastic. So fast forward to today and the food and service was fantastic again. My wife had the fried green tomato Blt and she loved it. I had the grilled chicken with teriyaki sauce and it was great.
