“Disappointed”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

Cafeteria style dining where you choose a meat and 2 or 3. The pork chops were thin, grizzley, and dry; butter beans were good; mashed potatoes & gravy just okay. I was disappointed as I had hear such good reviews .... maybe my expectations were too high? Service was good. Don't think I'll be back.

“cafeteria style, fast food prices”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

Cafeteria style line where you can choose your meats and sides. Very good quality and very low prices. Cheaper than fast food and good down home taste.

“Home cooking.”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

This place reminded me of mom's. You go through a line to pick out what you want and the ladies give you good servings. There are not any prices listed but they were not too bad. For lunch a salad, meat, 2 sides, and a drink it was about $10.

“Great Choice!!”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

Took a group of 20 senior adults to Oil Lamp and they all enjoyed it. No complaints! They were even short an employee and still handled the lunch bunch quickly. We will definitely return.
