“We like the place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

Food was great. The service was great. Don't tell them you have a birthday.....The paddle will come out. It's a tradition. The original owner Lena actually spanked IKE! IF that can happen, you will get it too. We avoided it by not saying anything. The place is outside town and you have to look for it, but, it's easy to find and most GPS's will find it.

“Great food and value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

We ate here at the recommendation of our B&B, the food was excellent and very good value. It is in an old farmhouse, nice quaint atmosphere. Be sure to ask about the specials for the evening!

“Incredible Restaurant off Beaten Path”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

We were referred to Mr. K's farmhouse by by cousin who lives in Abiliene. What a treat to get off the interstate and near the riverbottom to enjoy views and gourment food. Could not have found it without our GPS but well worth the effort!

“Tab Hunter”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Had the grilled tilapia, it looked like it was steamed , with no flavor to it. The baked potato was warmed up or had been baked early that morning. The salad was not that much better with flavored bacon bites, (like the real bacon). The only thing that was real good was the soup. My wife had chicken stripes, she said she has had better, and her French fries were ok.

“We've eaten here many times in the past, as we live in the area.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

I was unhappy with the way soups were made...chicken soup was greasy & had tomatoes in it. The potato soup had green peppers in it & wasn't good for a touchy stomach. We quit going to eat here. After a couple yrs., we returned & the food was better.
