It’s a difficult time for restaurants that we understand. Fortunately, the food is excellent!! Steak cooked exactly as requested. Flounder not greasy & thick. Deviled Crab just like ones we love, but rarely find. We will return!!

We get the large platter and split it when we go! The fish is always delicious and the baked potato and salad bar are always fresh and tasty. My children have gotten hamburgers and chicken fingers and liked them both. There are a lot of...options on the menu, something for everyone.More

Stopped in for dinner while driving up the Parkway. The joint got crowded. We luckily made it in while the restaurant was still empty. It filled up completely within about 20 minutes. We all enjoyed our food. Food came out quickly, plenty of quality checks....Friendly enough service. No alcohol, though. Dry country.More

cooking then this is the place for you. I ordered trout, they ran out, then hubby ordered a chicken breast, ran out, ok, they only open at 4:30, we got their at 7:30, I find it hard to believe they ran out. If you want...anything grilled or broiled they charge you extra, and you had to pay extra because I actually wanted veggies with me dinner which tasted frozen from a bag. The waitress was super friendly, but the place is very dated, floors were dirty and salad bar was lacking in greens. I can say we won't be stopping again.More

Odd place in the mountains sporting all lighthouse motif, fast service, maybe too fast the Froglegs were served raw, twice, Cook problem, not the server.

We ate here our first day of vacation. I got the ribeye and my mother-in-law got a fish plate and we shared. Everything was great. The service was good too.

I love restaurants like this one. The person running the register owns the place; that says something. Hush puppies are legit! Really crispy and a tad sweet. I had the sirloin and shrimp special which was to my surprise excellent. Sirloin was perfectly seasoned and...Medium rare. Shrimp were firm, large and perfectly seasoned. All of the rest of our food was perfectly prepared as well. Ambiance is not amazing, more of a throwback in time. Service is pleasant, helpful and very accommodating.More
