My wife and i have been to this restaurant about 4 times now and everytime we go the food is amazing. I had the ribs which was the special of the day and they were to die for. This is a hidden treasure.

A couple of freindly local ladies cooking great food! Don´t expect anything fancy, but freshness and huge quantities at very reasonable prices. We had scallops, shrimps, fish and a lovely homemade fishcake - best we found anywhere on our 4000 miles trip around the states....More

I don't normally eat fried chicken, but Altman's has the best fried chicken and sweet tea I ever had. The cook definitely knows what she is doing. I'd give the food 10 stars if I could.
