They wouldn't let our service dog into the restaurant, so having no choice since almost everything else was closed, we chose to order a to go meal. My wife had the salmon and I had the chicken fried steak. Both were large portions and very,...More

This was recommended by a motel clerk, and while definitely better than any any fast-food joint, it was just average as far as local diners go. The menu is limited, mostly to fried foods. I had the catfish which was very good and the dinner...More

My family family ate here on Friday night. My wife had the chicken fried steak, which she said was good. The rest of us had the buffet. The chicken was no where near as good as it used to be. The selection was very limited....More

It was alright. The chicken salad I ordered was quite good. It was large and the chicken was yummy and ranch dressing was quality. My friend had a burger and curly fries. The fries were flavorful but the burger was very plain. Their OJ didn't...More

We came at an off time of day, 3:30 in the afternoon. Because of that, the buffet had been sitting a while (you can see in the photos that the gravy had made a “skin”). But everything was hot, and definitely NOT frozen stuff just...More

We've been to this restaurant several dozen times. The food is always very good and very reasonably priced. My favorites are either the tenderloin sandwich or chicken livers. The side dishes such as mashed potatoes and green beans are made the old-fashioned way and very...More
