You can sit with a small group or as a couple of friends! The décor is vintage French, and you can look at all the items if you are waiting for your food! Home style buffet serves Country Cooking!

This lunch-only restaurant was a real treasure. It had a one-trip buffet line with great home-cooking. The various rooms of the house were set up with tables for dining.

I love eating in old houses converted to a restaurant. This place didn't disappoint. They have a buffet and my friend really enjoyed it. My wife and I REALLY enjoyed the fried green tomato BLT. Awesome! Our other friend had a hot ham sandwich and she liked it.

This restaurant offers menu choices and a hot food bar. The best foods I enjoy here are the fried green tomatoes and the chicken salad.

Delicious southern comfort food! The chicken casserole, meatloaf, and the fried chicken are amazing. We also love their sweet tea. Our waitress was raving about the vinegar pie and actually brought us a complimentary piece. It is yummy! My husband really loves their butter pecan cake; it is quite delectable. The ambiance of the old Victorian home is very nice... More

I was told about this place by a cashier who told me about it when I asked for something different besides burgers, chicken and fried food. It was so good and the ambiance was warm, welcoming and historic

Had lunch from kitchen buffet. Very inexpensive at $7.95 drink included. Don't be scared off by "scruffy" kitchen set up!
