We enjoyed the local flavor of this restaurant. It wasn't the prettiest (or most spotless) place ever, but it was a local favorite . Lots of people knew each other. The waitresses were friendly and helpful. Food was good.

Service was so so. No smiles. Food was terrible. I ordered the fish. Tasteless and I am sure not fresh. My wife ordered the chicken and dumplings. Again tasteless and there was more gravy than chicken. Food took a long time to arrive. Had to...More
