Reviewed July 31, 2012

Can't beat the vegetables at lunch. Still one of my favorite places to take clients. Fast and friendly. Always hits the spot. No complaints here.

“Good food - great portions - great prices - great location”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

I ate at this property for lunch today, and I concur with a majority of the previous contributions. This property is an unrecognized jewel, and I would eat there again. The service was quick and friendly. The food was good, with great portions and great prices. The location is particularly good - on Valleydale Road, 1/2 mile from Highway 31 toward Interstate 65. I had the special (baked chicken with two vegetables - $10.00), a cup of the seafood gumbo ($4.00) and two glasses of the house white wine, and the tab was $25.00. This property has a neighborhood pub/sports bar feel. On less positive notes, parking was a problem (I found additional parking behind the property) and the crowd (varying widely in age) in property was a tad loud. Otherwise, a very positive experience.

“Great value, great quality food”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Lovely food for a stop on a long road journey. Service nothing special but the food really was, and for next to nothing. Blackened tilapia sandwich was special.

“A little disappointed.”
Reviewed May 11, 2012 via mobile

Ordered the special- fried catfish sweet potato fries and hush puppies. I ordered the wrong meal. The guys liked it, but it was too fishy and thick chunks for me. Coleslaw had horseradish; different but good. I would come back and order something different.
