I think the reason the restaurant is so highly rated is not only the food, but the experience. First, the atmosphere is like an old-fashioned style family place. It has a nice down home ambiance. Food is served in bowls for the table, etc. The food is good, but not remarkable. We go every time we visit the area. It... More

We had our first visit here on Sunday for lunch. We arrived around 10:30am. There was a line already forming for lunch...some still for breakfast. Started seating lunch guest at 11. The line seemed to move ok as you could smell the awesome aroma coming from inside. Barbara was our server and she was great. Started with homemade vegetable soup... More

This place is slightly overrated in my opinion. The home cooked food is freshly prepared and ready when you sit down, so my kids were happy about that. But be prepared to wait at least 30 min at any given time.

We love to go for breakfast. Excellent food and exceptional service. A short 45 minute drive from home and gets us out to the "high country"

We took my son for his 27th birthday, not our first time eating here. Food was great, hot, well cooked. Except corn was not as good, probably wrong season. Biscuits and cherry jam were wonderful, fried chicken was great. Service is fast. As others have stated this is "family style dining" they bring all the food at once. My husband... More

This place is amazing! Great for families! U may have to stand in line for a short time but it's worth the wait. When you are seated, they bring u everything! That's right, EVERYTHING. No ordering off a menu. And the food is amazing, esp the homemade biscuits and the cherry jelly. They do not take credit cards so bring... More

We have eaten here before but it was over 20 years ago. This was the better of all the various restaurants of this type that I have eaten in over several states. Prices are not bad when considering the amount of food they bring to your table. The service was very good and friendly. I would probably go here again... More

Once we started planning our trip to Boone, I knew we had to eat here. We were not disappointed. Our waiter was very attentive to our needs and kept our bowls and drink glasses filled. We both chose the peach cobbler for dessert and it was delicious. Restrooms were spotless! Next time I hope to try breakfast here.

I reviewed this restaurant once before but for some reason my review was rejected. I live in Boone and haven't eaten there in 30 years. This reason is simple. I remember the food as just barely edible and far from home cooking, at least not the home I grew up in. We had some friends visiting from down the mountain... More
