This restaurant is now closed. Sorry to see this. I loved their tomato pie!! They didn't have it all the time, but seems to sell out when they did have it.

I will confess, I'm a super picky eater but I LOVE southern home cooking! This place was fantastic! The staff was very friendly, the food was delicious and although I didn't have room for it the dessert was tempting!

Went here for Valentine's dinner with the wife. Service staff was warm and inviting with a very relaxing and romantic atmosphere. Food was comparable to any big city restaurant. Prices may seem high for small town but the food is very much worth the price.

Low country has the best pulled pork dinner anywhere. We love to stop in here and see Mike and his crew. Always greeted with a smile, great service and great beer. If they have tomato pie, you HAVE to try that! It's the best and you can tell because it sells out quickly. One of the best places McDowell County... More

The pulled pork tastes like vinegar and not like pork at all. Nothing like actual low country pulled pork. I guess it comes down to personal taste, and thus just didn't do it for me.

I visited the restaurant while working in Marion with a local friend who had never been there. I have the best pork chop I have ever had, juicy and served with a red wine vinaigrette and blue cheese (or maybe it was gorgonzola) The macaroni and cheese was not the typical southern yellow kind, but the way I remember my...
