“Somehow we had missed this gem”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Kept hearing their ads on our local radio station, so we thought we would give them a try. Great salad bar and a turkey club; one of the best in these here parts. My wife enjoyed her fresh 'daily special' soup. Our waitress, Mary Lou, has worked there for over 30 years; she was delightful.
We will be back soon for another lunch or maybe even try dinner there some night. Closed Sunday & Monday.

“Worth The Trip”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

The salad bar is worth the trip. A real salad bar not just lettuce and tomatoes. Friendly personnel. Warning, bring cash or a check. They do not accept plastic. (2013)

“Sweet Tea, friendly folks and good food.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Salad bar is a must. Very good variety and quality on the bar. Went during lunch time. Had some tasty clam chowder as the soup of the day. Shrimp po boy was good. Everything was well cooked and presented. Staff smiled and seemed to enjoy making customers visit a good one.

“Good-Average Food, Managers are Cheapskates”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Largish, attractive small town friendly home cooking dining experience. Biggest standout is an expansive Salad Bar but salad-only Unlimited or One Trip is quite overpriced. Have visited for years, lots of menu choices but nothing much stands out. Local staff always very friendly and attentive - no problems there. Several experiences with Manager-owners not volunteering to remove an unsatisfactory item from the bill. I guess they would rather keep a couple of bucks in the till today rather than make a customer happy and have them keep coming back..... ????
