Pretty good breakfast. Tenderloin sandwich looked pretty disgusting but tasted ok. Fries just ok. Biscuits ok. Not much atmosphere. Waitress friendly. Potato soup ok, vegetable soup good

The food is always good but, the service the last time we were there was not so good. They also, had taken out the selection of gift items out of the restaurant. Which is not such a big loss, they were mostly from China and not local artisans.

Our last visit offered good food as usual. It took 2 times to get my sons order correct so the waitress may have been new. Nonetheless, we finally got our food and it was good. The fried cornbread here is amazing.

My wife and I went for lunch on Sunday. Restaurant was not crowded and we were seated promptly. That is the last time we had any service. We sat for 20 minutes while other tables were seated and provided drinks and silverware. We asked two other waiters for help and were told it would be soon. The place was not... More

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a local shop keeper. The establishment was clean, the service friendly, and the food adequate. My wife had BBQ ribs and loved them. I had a seafood platter that was slightly overdone but reasonable in price. This is a good alternative to the many fast food places nearby.

Place described from my hotel front desk person Cracker Barrel like. I arrived just before closing and everyone was friendly. Gift shop area and bathrooms were being updated. BR open though and nice! Had tuna salad and beets. Nothing special. Tasted fresh. Good service. Best choice among the few places to sit and eat that was not fast food.

Stopped during a road trip. Would not recommend. Nothing special or yummy. Spend your money somewhere else.

This place was ok. Id try it again because it is convenient to the highway, but id order something different. I ordered an open face turkey sandwich, and what I got was two pieces of bread, with a few slices of turkey, slathered and drenched in a yellow gravy that looked very unappetizing.I ate it, but not much.My husband got...

Not much to say other than the place is a poor man's Cracker Barrel. Girlfriend had the turkey sandwich served with mashed potatoes and gravy which she said tasted okay. I had the grilled ham & swish with fries. Sandwich came with the bread super greasy and burned black on both sides. Could tell that the meat and cheese had... More

This a local restaurant and recommend to us as the place to go for good home cooking. My husband had chicken and I had ham. It was okay, but not extraordinary.
