We used to love this place but sadly we tried it tonight and were not impressed. It is not the place we remember. Our chicken fried steak and catfish were both frozen food heated up. The catfish was hardly edible- it was mushy, not flakey....More

Inside looks much better than outside and the food was alright. We were the only people in the restaurant, the bar and porch were busy.

Excellent Hamburgers and the Fries were wonderful! All the food ordered was correct and served in a timely fashion! The Atmosphere is a nice family friendly place with good warm servers.

Has changed hands and I was fairly disappointed with my last visit. Portions were not as large, service was horrible, food served not so hot and had to argue about the bar bill.
