Mmmmmmm!

This is our favourite spot to eat on our way south for the winter. The large servings of home style food is amazing, plenty of choices, fabulous fresh baked goods, and the prices very good. The location is perfect as it is just off the highway and next door to a great hotel and a gas station. Our... read more

The food is excellent and it's right next door to our favorite hotel. The service is quick and the staff are so pleasant. On the way out, we stop at the bakery and get some cookies to have in our hotel room.

Happily for us, the nearby Cracker Barrel was overcrowded and we decided to try Mrs. Rowe's. It was a very pleasant meal. The food was good and the service was prompt. An unexpected plus was the baked goods. We left with a bag of various cookies. All the cookies were fresh and delicious. The chocolate macaroons were outstanding.

My wife and I enjoyed our lunch at Mrs. Rowers. It was southern cuisine and satisfying. Our waitress, Emma, was very helpful and friendly.

Very plain food! Family style setting. Waitress was not very knowledgeable. I think it's a little expensive for what you get! I think Mrs. Rowe would be disappointed. Pies looked nice!

We've been stopping at Rowe's for over 30 years on our trips to and from the South. Great location right off I81 helps. We have had breakfasts, lunches, and dinner and enjoyed them all. I love breakfast the most. The biscuits, apple bacon, are a wonderful complement to the rest of my order. They bring coffee by the carafe to... More

Oh, I need to go back. The aromas of homemade veggie beef soup greeted me when I walked in. Then I saw the home cooked pie case. I knew that I had found a little piece of heaven. Our water, Ryan was wonderful. He informed us about the size of the portions. I had the meat loaf....so much better than... More

We love to stop at local places while travelling. Chains are boring! This one never disappoints. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is homey and comfortable. We highly recommend it.
