Facebook listed lunch hours 11:30 -3:30. When we arrived at 11:30 was told lunch was not served until 12:15. We were not in hurry so waited only to receive our food wrong. Each of us order hamburger and a basket of fries to share. What...we got was one burger with cold fries and one hamburger with cheese and bag of chips. Burger was ordered mustard nd onions only. It was not worth our drive from Cleveland . Will not go back.More

Left a town with countless breakfast options just to eat here and it was closed despite visiting during the operating hours displayed on the front door (10 AM on a Wednesday). Facebook, TripAdvisor, and their own answering machine mentioned no closure, temporary or otherwise. Don't...make plans to visit this place unless you don't mind risking it being inexplicably and unexpectedly closed.More

Finally stopped to try after driving by many times. Burgers and fries were pretty good. Service was slow, but we weren’t in a hurry and got a chance to look around in the building at the antiques and artifacts. Would stop again to try something...different.More

We had lunch here and the food was good. Its a small business so its best to be unhurried and enjoy the nostalgic atmosphere.

One of our favorite breakfast or lunch spots when in the north GA mountains. Arrived on a Sunday morning July 4th weekend about 10:30 so just under the 11:00 cutoff for breakfast. Two tables inside were occupied and we asked if we could sit out...on the new covered patio. Only one table out there as most of the seating is high-back chairs by a counter on the exterior wall. Still looks like they are in the process of remodeling and server didn't know if it was going to be screened, overhead fans, etc. Note: we did experience a bit of an annoying fly problem as they and bees seemed to be attracted to the untreated log countertop (maybe beer spills soaked into the wood). Anyway, I ordered the cheese omelette with sausage, grits and a biscuit. My wife ordered scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, biscuit and gravy. Food was served hot and tasty. Servers were very attentive with beverage refills.More

We drive by and was curious of what was inside, but at the same time was hungry. They said they were still opened, so we were seated. The hamburger was amazing as well as the chicken salad sandwich. The waitress was very friendly. It was...well worth the visit. We would definitely be back.More

We arrived for Memorial Day weekend and stopped for a late lunch. The waitress was professional and friendly. We ordered grilled cheese, a loaded hamburger and fries with sweet tea. The food was warm and tasty and the sweet tea was great. Barbara the owner...stopped by to chat with us and was the friendliest person we had met in Georgia. We finished our chat with a promise to return the next day for breakfast. Upon our return the next day, we were greeted warmly. Barbara took our order and the food arrived shortly there after. The claim is spot on, the best biscuits in Batesville! I had mine with gravy, scrambled eggs and bacon. Our breakfast was tasty and the staff was beyond friendly. We will be visiting again soon!More

Arrived for Saturday morning breakfast and was lucky to find out they were going to be closed the week of Jan. 27th for some remodeling. It had been over 4 years since our last visit and it looks as they have shifted over to being...a restaurant rather than a restaurant/general store. Great friendly service and good breakfast food.More

Stumbled upon this restaurant and were so glad we stopped for breakfast! Absolutely delicious, so much so, we came back the next day! Be sure to get a biscuit with your meal - the best I have ever had! Great service, food and atmosphere.
