The price was too high and there was a lot of fat on the meat. The view was decent but not what we expected

Breakfasts here are just like home, and the view across the bayou is peaceful. Definitely country cooking, but if you're in the mood for some yummy comfort food like your Grandma used to make, this is your place.

One of my favorite stops for breakfast (other than my kitchen). While everything is good at Momma's, the smoked pork chops and friend chicken are ESPECIALLY good! Purely delightful Southern fare, from mashed taters to butter beans to cornbread. Iced tea to wash it all down with. Very nicely priced, service is down home and friendly - you'd have to... More

Lunch is a choice of 2-3 meats, 8-10 vegetables and 4-6 desserts; with pricing for various combinations as well as all... More

They will have peas that are in season like white acre, lady, crowder, field, zipper, butter, etc. The peas are seasoned with ham and are delicious. Collards were outstanding. The Mac and cheese...

Come hungry, the portions are big. My wife often leaves with half of it in a to go box and eats it for dinner after going to lunch there. It's a traditional meat and three veggie kind of place. Almost like going home for lunch...
