“food was only average,not what i was expecting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

it was typical diner food. Not the delicious southern food they advertised. even our server warned us not to get somethings on the menu because they weren't very good.

“Popular place that is over rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

The food is not nearly as good as you would Tink by the number of customers in the store. The country cooking is just average. Nothing to write home about.

“Great fish dishes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

If you order the grilled grouper ask for no butter or it comes out swimming in it. The grouper and other fish are better and cheaper than the Fish Market down the street. The grilled tilapia sandwich is great too! I wish I could cook fish like this!

“Good Food at a reasonable price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

Stayed in a motel down the street and needed a place to eat supper. This was a great choice. Service was excellent, food was good, and prices were very reasonable. I would highly recommend this for a very good inexpensive meal.

“The location and atmosphere is fine but the food is not good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

The location and atmosphere is fine but the food is not good. This is not the southern cooking that I grew-up with. There are too many extra ingredients the alter the taste.
