Food is homemade and large portions. Building is on the wore out side, but the food more than makes up for it! You will have to wait a little bit because they are usually busy and food is fresh!

We enjoyed our our meal at this country cafe. My husband and I split the small chicken fried steak dinner and still had a little left over. Not fancy but good down home cooking.

Sweet potato fries were very good. Grilled cheese was soggy. Service was friendly but slow. Not a fan of all the kitschy stuff. I get it, you're a country place.

Their side salads are large, fresh, and crispy - the chicken salads, fried or grilled chicken, are huge and very tasty - a friend and I split one and even then we can't finish it all.

As all restaurants they have their menu for children, your child will not be disappointed with their menu, and if your child would like something different I think they would make it for them unless they were extremely busy.
