“A LITTLE LET DOWN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

We were given a suggestion to dine here by local friends who enjoy eating out here. We went on a Tuesday night around seven or so. It was not terribly busy, as would be expected for a Tuesday night. We were a party of 5, and were seated immediately. Our drink order was taken and promptly returned. What I must say is the service was absolutely top notch. Excellent. Our waiter was one of those rare ones who can make a dining experience really enjoyable. The prices were very reasonable, the portions good. My friend ordered a turkey dinner with cornbread dressing, sweet potato fries and yams. I ordered their signature 3 piece fried chicken dinner (all dark meat, which they accomplished without a fuss or up charge), other party members ordered the chicken strip meal, the fried chicken all white, and the smothered pork chop. We all agreed the yams were wonderful, the cornbread dressing was moist and tasty. Although it did have a spice none of us could recognize. Not a negative by any means. There were two disappointments of note. The fried chicken had a nice crust but NO flavor. It was very bland. The chicken was moist, but a bit greasy for our taste. Some seasoning in the crust would have made the chicken more enjoyable. The Arnie Palmer was really poor. In their favor the certainly did try to make it right. On a positive note, our drink glasses were never empty. We will give it another chance and perhaps things will get better. Next time I am going for the Red Beans over RIce. Oh, they have a very nice outdoor seating area, but in the heat and humidity it was not in use.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Our second visit to eat here. Absolutely enjoyed it this time as the last. The server was a little slow and we had to wait on a chicken breast to be cooked but everything was still delicious. The fried green tomatoes were yummy!

“Disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

I have heard raves about this place, only to be disappointed. I ordered New Orleans style roast beef po boy. The meat was uniform like "steak um" dry and no flavor at all. The sweet potato fries were good. The server was prompt and pleasant . I could find a better place to spend $12. This meal was eaten at 4 pm with only 2 other tables seated, not busy at all.

“Great southern food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Everything I've eaten here has been great. Bring an appetite because you will want to eat every morsel on your plate! Whether it is fried, broiled or baked you will not be disappointed. Regardless of the meat, I always order mac and cheese - yum. Most nights there is live jazz music playing inside. It can get a little loud so if you are meeting friends to 'visit' you may want to go for an early dinner (before 7) or sit outside.
