Three of us drove to Jasper and had lunch there. I had the lunch special: roast beef, sweet potatoes, mac and cheese, and peach cobbler. All were really good. The waitress was efficient, friendly, fun, and took time to answer some questions we had about...the area. We're looking forward to eating there again when we have the opportunity.More

Excellent and very friendly service. Nice local ambiance. Yummy vegetarian omelette, chock full of veggies, and marble rye toast available. Yum!

This was a busy place on a Saturday afternoon. There is a stage, so it looks like they have live music at times. I had a BLT with extra crispy bacon. It was good and came with Ruffles. The quesadilla and burger were also great,...nothing particularly special about anything we ordered. We appreciated the clean restrooms and attentive server. They have a little gift shop with quite a selection of shirts.More

Friendly waitress, unbelievably good fried mushrooms and black & blue burger was delicious! Lots of nostalgia. Not fancy but great food. Definitely recommend!

We have no complaints about the staff. They were short handed and did their best and they were friendly. But there was food on the floor and flies buzzing around it and buzzing around us as we ate and around the buffet. Bathrooms were dirty,...likely because they are short staffed. It always makes you wonder how clean the kitchen is though. The restaurant was humid so maybe their cooling system couldn't keep up with the excessive heat outside. The food was good but not great. Prices were fair by today's standards. We found a subway sandwich shop and ate there for the rest of our visit.More

This is a gem! Such a unique place with great food as such a friendly staff. I suggest you come hungry! Two at or table ordered salad- they should have shared, they are family size! My father in law had chicken fried steak e was...happy it was a real deal steak and he raved over the rolls and homemade gravy. There is a cute gift sop that n the back next close to the bathroom we would have missed if we hadn’t have gone to the bathroom.More

Decent food but didn’t live up to all the hype I’ve heard over the years. Went this past Sunday for lunch and they were definitely busy so we expected the wait. Nothing really bad here but just average American fare. I had the southwest burger...and it was pretty good. I would give it another try though.More

We ate here twice while in the area for a few days over Spring Break. The food was delicious and the staff friendly. The chocolate gravy is famous - and for good reason!!

Popular place across from the courthouse. Lots of pictures on the walls and staff were outstanding during a busy holiday weekend! The pancakes for breakfast were HUGE! We ordered the two pancakes & a side of bacon for 4.99 and added pecans for an additional...99 cents! Delicious and way more than we could eat! Should have ordered one pancake!More

The menu is huge and all servings are huge! Our orders were delicious , hot and plenty. Wait staff is efficient -the place was doing crazy business on a Sunday evening. We had a 15 min wait for a table but got to order pretty...quick. This seems to be the go-to place for hikers, kayakers and all outdoor activity enthusiasts. Family friendly ! Super casual atmosphere.More
