Great restaurant. Quaint setting, good service and extensive menu. My only complaint is related to its quaint setting because it is small and seating limited. Reservations are a great help.

Great food with great service in a small old bank building in Wildwood, FL. Great place for a special southern style meal. Great desserts but they are HUGE!

A quaint restaurant on the main street of Wildwood, it's very popular. Don't even try to get in without a reservation, which can be made online. It's very small and charmingly furnished with mismatched tables, chairs, dishes and silverware. The food is outstanding and the desserts beyond good. Good service and an altogether great dining experience.

The definition of down home southern cooking. This is a small establishment, but worth the drive. My wife had the cheese grits with baked beans and pork on top. So good! I had the pork sandwich with fried green tomato and onion ring on it. So good! their pork is seasoned so well. The southern bell sweet tea is perfect... More

I have wonderful lunches here but dinner was just ok. The servers were over burdened but tried hard. The heat was oppressive and made enjoying our meal difficult. I will certainly go for lunch but probably won't do dinner again. Btw...deserts are amazing.

There were 3 of us and we all LOVED it here, we actually visited twice while we were in town. The 1st night we had a wonderful server, the 2nd visit they were less than friendly. The food however, was excellent both times. Ohhh I wish I could have some of their delicious cake right now! We had carrot cake,... More

It would be wrong to enjoy a meal of this quality and not comment. All meals were excellent and timely with generous portions. Friendly, helpful staff and a unique charming decor made the meal perfect. If your within driving distance don't miss this great find. Call ahead for reservations!!! I loved the chicken and waffles.

We are burger aficionados, and this place has a great burger. We fully enjoyed our lunch and look forward to going back to try other dishes.

We have visited many times as a couple and with family and visiting friends. We love the food and desserts. Drinks are great too. My favorite is country fried steak. Can't find better around here
