Very good Southern cooking. We tried the Mac and cheese, the cornbread,the creamed corn, pecan pie, sweet potato soufflé. For the manes we got chicken fingers, and almond crusted trout. The almond crusted trout was outstanding.Their salads also look very good.They have jalapeño cornbread which...was very moist and perfect.More

I went because they advertised they had "Country Fried Steak" It was not. It was like salisbury steak with brown gravy. It definitely was not country fried steak.

We would come every Sunday and service was good. However it is horrible now. The customer service in the carry out is horrible. They say the same items on line are the same, that is not true. They don't know what is on the line....It took 35 minutes to get food from take out. And you can't go through the line. Will I can spend my $50 some where else and not have to drive a long distance there anymore. I will make sure my Facebook friends are informed as well. Like I did when y'all were good. No longer a customer!!!More

I am very sorry to hear that and I also sorry we did not meet your expectations on this recent visit. We recently had a turn over in management and staffing, and we have heard similar issues as what you have experienced and for that...More

I've been eating here about once/month since it opened. This was my first trip back in 2 months due to the pandemic. First, the restaurant has gone above and beyond to ensure physical distancing and guest safety. I observed lots on changes on the food...line and in the dining room. The food was great and the service was delightful! I'll be back later this week!More

We were introduced to this cafeteria just recently, and we are excited! They have good fresh food, great selection, reasonable prices, and very friendly helpful staff. Yes,--it is a cafeteria, and not fine dining--but it's a great place for a good meal at a reasonable...price.More

I've eaten here on and off since they opened. I like my food "hot" and when they opened there must have been some problems with their steam table as I never got hot food. Much better now, but their bread (rolls, muffins, etc.) will never...melt butter. One other issue--they always have a large bowl of tossed salad (lettuce, tomato, etc.) but it is drowning in a huge amount of white dressing (looks like mayonnaise or ranch). I've mentioned this to the staff more than once and even wrote a comment card once...but no change. All the staff is friendly and helpful. Prices are reasonable. They get lots of good reviews--maybe I'm more discriminating!More

Delicious! Great southern cooking. The cooks and staff are from S&S cafeteria. Home cooked vegetables, fried chicken, fish, dressing , sweet potato soufflé and so on and so on. Yes they have the deserts too! Service was great as well.

I drove out of my way to go here after hearing good things & was very disappointed and won’t go back:( The macaroni was watery, almost like a cottage cheese consistency. I asked for country fried steak (on the menu) and she started to put...chopped steak on my plate. I said no & she said that’s what country friend steak is. I said no I want traditional country friend chicken or steak - battered, fried with white gravy. The okra was good but very salty, the bread uncooked in the middle. The peach cobbler was good, but I left a lot of food on my tray because it wasn’t worth finishing.More

The cracking bread was terrible along with some of the worst collard greens that I have ever tasted. If you are looking for good country cooking .. try someplace other than this poor excuse for a restaurant that has a buffet line that you can't...ever find from the terrible set up of the entrance !!More
