Homey atmosphere with great food and service. Homestyle menu with many selections. Baked Chicken and Dressing was outstanding and the medley of vegetables were fresh and seasoned to perfection. Dessert menu was very enticing but portions were of the size that did not have room...More

Sunday was wall to wall but set on the porch and got right in. Food was outstanding and the portions we're more than generous. The wait staff was very attentive in spite of being busy. Definitely a return visit. Can't understand anything but glowing reviews.

Great place to eat and watch the world go by. Located in a quaint old Victorian house. Sit outside when the weather allows. Good food, good prices. We liked it so much we did our wedding rehearsal dinner here!

We thought we would try a local restaurant for lunch. This was a gem. The sides are where the southern menu comes in to play. The mac and cheese was wonderful, and I am a mac and cheese snob. We also had a lovely visit...More
