Great find!

Had the crab stuffed shrimp, corn pudding and asparagus. Yummy! Friendly service, casual and wouldn't have expected this great a restaurant at The Quality Inn. Definitely beats restaurant chain food. Just don't be in a hurry. Relax.

I've eaten at this location several times and have always found both the service, quality of food and price to be excellent. The wine list, while not extensive, is good. The list of

We visited this restaurant because it was convenient to our hotel room. We were seated promptly but the service was painfully slow, it took around 45 minutes to receive our entrees. We both ordered the stuffed shrimp which was nothing more than 4 broiled split shrimp with a small dollop of crab meat and a sauce on top. While it... More

Our waitress, Alexis, was very friendly and quick with service. Really enjoyed her company and conversing with her (and sharing some stories from the road)! The food menu was limited but still a decent selection and our meals were out of this world. The bartender kept our drinks coming (as requested!) and the atmosphere was casual and comfortable.

Try the owners recipe of bourbon beef , corn pudding and oyster nachos..(in season) , the menu has various excellent selections including shrimp and grits . Excellent food and up-scale in a small town.

Dined here at the recommendation of someone. It is conveniently located and is similar in design to many restaurants located off the lobby of a motel. The decor is tired as I sense it is original and needs to be refresh ended. The menu is deep enough in choices and my sense is that everything is prepared fairly well. Unfortunately... More

Waited at door for 3 minutes to be seated. Table was dirty. Understaffed. Appetizer was a joke. Not worth the $8. Convenient to Hampton Inn but not worth it. Stover salad was pretty good though. Just bad service.

I've eaten here numerous times and had good meals. Nothing like a great dinner in a city, but a good meal. Tonight I tried the pasta primavera with truffle oil, and it was one of the best dishes I've had. If you order grilled fish, specify a short cook unless you like yours well done. Salads are very nice. Wine... More

Second time to this unexpected place. Located at a budget hotel it would be hard to miss. The pasta entree was fresh,light, and flavorful. The shrimp and grits were equally great. Friend had chicken fried tuna and loved it. Will go back.

My wife and I go here regularly for date night. Best steaks in the area. Excellent food. A little pricey, but worth it. Nice, pleasant atmosphere. Make sure you make a reservation though, especially on weekends or special days.
