Ate there twice during my stay at the Anatole. Would go again. You need to be ready to meet new people. the place is crowded and they seat singles next to singles. Everything was great. Cornbread, rolls, gravy all great home cooking. they don't try to be fancy. There is nothing to figure out from the menu. it is what... More

I went to eat lunch here and had been here before and it was always good. cornbread is still good. However could not eat much of the meatloaf and navy beans I ordered. Neither were tasty and actually tasted bad.

You won't be on your diet after eating here. Good chicken fried steak with gravy and black eyed peas and cornbread. Gained 3# but it was worth it. Friendly waiters with good old southern hospitality.

Stopped in for late breakfast, early lunch around 11 am on a Thursday morning. 3 kids, 2 adults. Suzie Q took great care of us. Large portions, great coffee, diner vibe. 💜💜💜

I go here for lunch a few times a month. Food is traditional comfort diner food. Nothing is over the top spectacular but everything is good. Go early or late to avoid waiting for a table. They also offer take out.

Neat little place. Good home cooking type food. Pork chops were the bomb. Not much parking, but worth the hassle. Fast service.

If you like comfort food, this is your place! Breakfast is always good and the pot roast is great. The rolls are a little plain and dry. Try the pies. The service is friendly but they do have a tendency to disappear after they deliver your food. It's good for couples and families but I don't think I'd bring a... More

We went to Mama's Daughter's for a late breakfast on a Sunday. We were seated immediately and were promptly greeted at our table. The coffee and omelettes were fresh and well cooked The server was attentive throughout the meal. The biscuits were warm and soft. My daughters pancakes were fluffy and flavorful.
