They have it all. Had trouble picking what to have; will certainly come back to try the fried baloney. In a great old neighborhood; plenty of parking. Reasonable prices.

Very good country home cooked food. Expect the southern hospitality that you can only find in West Columbia. Daily lunch special tends to run out by 1:00 so go a little earlier.

My wife and I took our kids here one evening for lunch because weve heard great things from friends but to our suprise it was not the experience we expected. We were told to sit where we wanted and as we were waiting the staff were having conversations that were not appropriate even the manager was joining in once we... More

This is a small, unassuming restaurant. We stopped because it looked like the locals were there. We were not disappointed. Wait staff was great. We enjoyed a good ole country breakfast.
