Some of the best down home cooking in the area. Its a bit of a drive from home but well worth the trip for some good cooking done right.

Stopped here for dinner while staying locally. Great food including meatloaf, fried shrimp and other southern home cooked specialties. Dessert was fabulous! Staff is friendly and prices were reasonable. Seems like a local favorite too.

Had the breakfast special and it was just what you expect from a good american diner: eggs cooked just to order, toast, hash browns and sausage with bottomless coffee. Food was brought out fast and they are open very early, so +++

Visited this restaurant after a long hike, did not appear to be any air conditioning. Prices are reasonable, small portions. The food was ok, the hush puppies seemed over cooked. I do not think I would return here to eat.

We stopped in after a hike at table rock. The food was delicious and obviously homemade. We had the pork roast, meatloaf, and a wonderful slice of blackberry pie. The service is incredibly slow but the servers themselves were friendly once you got their attention.
