The restaurant was a big disappointment. The price was very high and the quality very low. The corn tasted like it came from a can. Salad was sad with one whole grape tomato. The mashed potatoes and gravy were tasteless. I would never return

The place it tired and could definitely use an update. The food was average, bu the biscuits were amazing. They were light and flaky, they were worth the visit. The chicken was also good, but the rest of the meal was average or below average. Our server was nice, but seemed tired as did most of the servers.

We come here every time we are in town. At least once a year for the past 20 years. Over the past several I have noticed a decrease in the quality of both the food and the service. We visited on a Tuesday evening. We did not have to wait to get in. My husband and I ordered the traditional Chicken dinner with all white meat chicken and my daughter ordered a side of french fries. I will start with the fries. They were cold and hard. The chicken had great flavor but was super dry. The mashed potatoes were cold. The gravy was lukewarm. The corn has never been anything special as it is corn poured out of a can. The service was a little on the slow side and not very friendly. The restaurant was extremely dirty. We paid over $60.00 for two meals and a side of fries. We have decided that we will not be coming back the next time we are in this area. It's too bad as we used to really look forward to this dinner.

We left a "Beatles" concert before it was over to beat the crowds and only waited 10 minutes for a table for 6. The entrees, including the salads, were so huge that we could easily have shared entrees and eaten for half the price! Delicious!

PROS: excellent chicken dinner( their specialty!); large portion at an affordable price ( you get more for your money compared to their other entrees).

CONS: can be a long line to get in (we ate at lunch time and did not have to wait).
