We have eaten here several times and have not been disappointed yet. The service was great and we didn't wait long for our dinners. Ribs are fall off the bone tender and the catfish appetizer is very tasty. We will certainly be back again!

A little pricey, but very much worth it. More of a S.Eastern taste, than Southern. Eat in, pick up. Great service, large portions. Go on your birthday for a free, generous dessert.
