I’ve eaten-in and ordered out many a time. Haven’t eaten-in much since the pandemic started, but I’ve been able to notice one thing....It’s not as friendly as in the past. Perhaps it’s COVID. Or maybe other things. But it’s lost (to me) that homey feeling....Anyway it’s a nice little place that’s seen better days. Hopefully those days will return soon.More

I have lived outside of Wachula about 8-9 years and just found this place. It literally is a little house with no front door. Parking minimal and enter through ramp in back that looks like service entrance. Inside is small but clean. Has a good...waitress, only issue was she forgot the bread and I didn't care because the food was so good and a lot of it. We will definitely go back. Ironically we have eaten next door many times and never noticed this place. The fruit stand recommended it, which also has a good BBQ and take out but they were low that late in the day.More

We have been here a couple times and the food has been really good. My parents live in Zolfo Springs and are regulars at this restaurant so we eat here on our visit with them. It’s nothing fancy but the food is good and fairly...priced. The staff is always very friendly and efficient.More

Atmosphere: NEEDS a huge update and fresh paint! Very messy, boxed stuff laying around, dusty and dirty. Filthy carpet, tattered and torn table clothes are nasty! The music is so loud, you can hardly hear anyone talking at your table. Food: Everything needs seasoning! The...onion rings have so little batter, it all fell off, its laughable!!! Starlight Burger ordered medium rare, ONLY the middle was cooked correctly, because there beef is frozen! NASTY burger!!! Their Soup special.. "Chicken Macaroni"...more like left over tomato soup with macaroni noodle and ONE tiny piece of chicken!!! The Fried Green Tomatoes and Fired Okra... ZERO seasoning in the batter. The tomatoes are so thin, its almost disappearing!!! Their fried chicken, again...tasteless, ZERO seasoning, nasty mash potatoes with watered gravy. The only decent food was their salad... STAY CLEAR AWAY from this hole in the wall, which is exactly what it is...with a back only entrance, shameful in every way!More

They lost their sign in a hurricane so I made a trip around the block a couple of times but I found it. It appears to be a house that has has been renovated into a restaurant. Family owned and operated. The owners were lovely...hosts. Warm friendly atmosphere and had interesting items on the walls. My favorite were drawings their grandchildren had done. I had a large group of folks with me (20 on one visit and 10 on another). Can you imagine not one person had a complaint about the food or service?More

Quirky but pleasant! You would not venture in, if you judged from the outside, which is a disaster! Road has no sign, so you go round and round. Delightful helpful Greek lady gets this 3 stars but food, NY strip and Grouper was just ok....Steak may have been frozen, was fish Grouper? Questions remain. It was warm and inviting, host owner made us a special salad to help my Keto/low carb wife.. It was a welcome stop for hungry folks driving Historic FL17 south from Orlando to Naples.More

Being new to the area, and from a much larger community it was a wonderful surprise to find this hidden gem. It's an old bungalow converted into a restaurant so it's quite quaint. They have no sign along the road to advertise so unless your...really looking you'll miss it. The food is homemade, good portions, very reasonable,and we enjoyed everything we have had the last couple of times there.More

The atmosphere may not be a 5star level but the food is worth the trip to the restaurant! We go back at least 3 to 4 times a month!

From the outside the restaurant appears to be just an old house in need of some repair. But don't let that fool ya! Once you enter, you're first greeted by a very friendly staff who directs you to find a seat anywhere you'd like. As...you look around, you see this is a very clean, quaint family owned restaurant that has a nice southern, country charm to it. There are 3 separate dining areas that are fairly small, but quite comfortable. Antiques and other collectibles fill the walls. The service is prompt and courteous. Servers are attentive to your needs but not bothersome. The menu offers a wide variety of food at very reasonable prices. We opted for one of the daily specials of Steak and Shrimp, served with a garden salad and your choice of 2 sides. We started with an appetizer. A larger than expected serving of fried okra. In fact, some of the best fried okra we've had anywhere else. Our steaks were presented to us exactly as ordered. My husband prefers well-done, while I enjoy my steak medium. The steak was tender and juicy, the shrimp was flavorful and delicious, and our choice of sides were quite pleasing! We'd recommend this restaurant to others, and will be returning ourselves! Just a note, although the website says they are closed Saturday's, they are in fact open only for dinner from 4pm-8pm.More

Yes ma'am they do. Both credit and debit cards. Just a note to remember if you plan to go on the weekend, they are closed on Sundays. Enjoy!

I'm not certain but I believe the fact that the restaurant is in a former small home with 3-4 separate rooms; a group that size may barely fit but wouldn't be able to sit together. I would suggest calling to find out the... More
