5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We ate dinner Saturday night and returned for breakfast Sunday morning. Food was very good and the service was excellent. Servers were very attentive. Frank is an excellent host.

“Didn't get to eat”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We came in around 8pm on a Sunday night - the place was packed and we stood for several minutes waiting to be seated. Finally the hostess who was sitting and eating at a nearby table hefted herself over and rudely stated they were closed. No hours were posted anywhere.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I went on Memorial Day weekend and ordered the fried chicken special...it wasn't.

The waitress forgot my salad, until I asked for it. It seemed to be more croutons than salad. Then she brought the main course - four pieces of fried chicken with sweet potato casserole and green beans. The sweet potatoes were above average, but the green beans probably came out of a can, and were bland. The fried chicken was average, and too greasy.

I've eaten here before, and it was better, so perhaps it was an off day.

“back porch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

we stopped here after not seeing many other stops in townsend. it looked inviting so we took a chance. the older gentleman greeting visitors was very friendly as well as our waitress. the food was average, similar to what you might fix at home. one said the chicken tenders had too much breading, not much chicken; two of us ordered the trout, which was okay but not my favorite. the serving sizes were well porportioned. overall, not bad but not great-average.
