This is a family owned restaurant that I've visited several times. Today I ordered only 3 sides (no entree). First, they were out of one of my choices (baked potato), so they substituted mashed potatoes--without telling me until my order came out. I would have preferred the opportunity to change my order. Also, be aware when you pay that if... More

We love going here for special occasions or meeting up with bigger groups--especially with kids (lots of room for kids to run around). We love the food--grilled porkshops, chicken fried steak, potatoes, great salad & BEST OF ALL---fabulous RANCH DRESSING!

I didnt read any reviews before a friend of ours took us here. I ordered the Chicken Fried Steak and my wife had the Catfish. Now I dont get to eat chicken fried steaks too often anymore but I have shoved a few down my gullet in the past. This was one of the best I have had. The breading... More

I have eat here many times in the past including before the new owners. Food is still good but has lost some of the nostalgic appeal of the past. My steak was ok but small for its size and overcooked. Waitress made no attempt to appease me. I order medium rare, I don't expect well done. The venue looks like... More

It was our first time here and we were impressed. The grounds are beautiful, the place was interesting, the beer was cold and the food was good. We visited during the day so there was not a band playing but there was a wedding about to take place outside and we were there for a gender reveal party going on... More

I have eaten at all the local diners in the area and I am stunned at the popularity of this dive. While the atmosphere may be coined "small town country" the food was far from any country food I've ever tasted. Seriously, how can you screw up chicken fried steak? One word - gross. Me and my extended family won't... More

We live not too far from Oscar Store and go regularly at least once a week or so. Good country home-style cooking ... great service ... busy place out in the sticks. Family owned and operated and Thomas never knows a stranger! The burgers, steaks and chicken fried steak are all really good. Now they serve breakfast but I haven't... More

Service was good, atmosphere was good but I have to say the food was just ok. Would like to see a choice and not "have" to get french fries.

We love to visit NONcommercial establishments. This restaurant is well off the beaten path depending on how you get to it. It would have been a great destination for a long Saturday M/C ride. Of course you have to get the chicken fried steak/chicken when at a place like this. The young waitress was very nice and chatted with us... More
