Have never been disappointed when visiting The Cabin. Food is very good, reasonable and just love the atmosphere . Where else would you enter the restrooms through a cistern! Enjoy looking at the novelty antique farm implements and unusual art.

On our last girls trip, we stopped here between Plantation tours. We each had something different & were all happy! Dessert was great, too! Our waitress was very personable!
