Spent the night in Sylacauga and had dinner here. The filet was divine and my partner loved the lamb. Very friendly staff and chef. And Jim Nabor’s childhood home is next door! Fantastic dinner!

We were told by people that had been there "they have really slow service" Apparently that stems from the size of the kitchen ... we had reservations for Noon and got there about 20 minutes early. We were seated and the wait began Although, the...More
