“Just a quick stop”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

This is a simple little place with a lot a flavor. I quick stop for a filling your hunger needs every time we travel through Perry we always stop by for a snack.

“Stopped for lunch on road trip. Were told it was an icon in Fla.”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

We were told we must check out the country food at Pouncey's while we were on a long road trip and it was a good time for lunch... The food was okay/pleasant. The wait staff was friendly. Lots of parking area to leave our RV with dogs under a tree. The dining room is clean but the chairs are old and many vinyl chair cushions are torn.

We each had one of the country plate specials: meat, veggies, mash potato and dessert. I would say the best part was a little yellow cake with whip cream icing.

So we've checked it out now. That's about it.

“Good sandwiches”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Stopped in for lunch, the staff was very friendly and the food was good. Don't think I would want to order anything like steak from a place like this, but for sandwiches, baskets, etc. it was fine. The seats were terrible - ripped, lumpy, etc. but the hostess apologized for that right up front and said they are going to be renovating the whole place very soon.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Decided to take wife to dinner, this was close so we went there, place was a little busy and they had only 2 waitresses, the fried pickles were good, the wifes Filet Mignon was anything but and was barely warm, garlic mash potatoes were good. I ordered the grilled Chicken with garlic mash potatoes, the 1st piece of chicken tasted fine along with the potatoes but then I started on the second piece and something just didn't taste right, I think the second piece wasn't fully thawed when it was cooked, we were compensated off the bill and given a free dessert of peach cobbler which was very good, over all I was not impressed with the food but the waitress was good and how we were taken care of was also good.

“Locals seem to like it.”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

We went for breakfast, ordered biscuits and gravy with coffee. The service was pleasant and the food was tasty but while the gravy was hot when it was served, the biscuits had a chill to them that quickly absorbed the heat. We were hungry so we advised the waitress of the issue but declined to send them back. We arrived during a lull in the action and as more patrons arrived, the service level dropped precipitously.
