Reviewed August 2, 2014

Place is very small and not at all fancy, but the food was excellent and served piping hot. Fiddlers were hot, and flaky and not at all greasy. German fries had just the right amount of onion. Pork chop was tender with a hint of the smokiness without being overpowering. Serving size was huge. Service was a little slow at first (it's seat yourself and if the waitress doesn't see you come in it may take a bit before they realize you are there, but once they do the service was fast and attentive without being annoying.

We ate here after visiting a couple of local wineries. This is a word of mouth place. Everything is prepared when you order it. The waitresses all make sure you are taken care of. The food is hot! when it is placed in front of you. Order the German fries & if you like them crisp, ask for it & they will be perfect! I would come here again just to get the fries that are fixed right! When we are in the area, we will be back.

We love it. One would never find this place or even know it was there without "word of mouth." It is a little out of the way for us now because we have moved, but we have added it to our annual list of activities when we visit home. It is also a cultural experience of southern Indiana rural hospitality.

This is one of those places that is a destination............hardly on the way to anywhere..........on a country road.

If you go there at dinner time, prepare to wait for a table. The place is small but the food is BIG!! You can get a drink at the bar while waiting but don't count on a seat being available. Unfortunately, their beer selection is somewhat limited with premium beers rarely available.

Their grilled pork chops (over wood and/or charcoal) are as good as anywhere. They are also known for their fried chicken.

And...........the price is right..........a single pork chop dinner goes for close to $9 and a double pork chop dinner is in the $12.00 range.................and they are large chops.

When in Southern Indiana, general area of Tell City, I would recomment checking it out!!!!

We have eaten here several times and it is always the same - a terrific place with great food and service. There were 9 of us last night and our orders were perfect. It's tavern food but excellently prepared and there are some "fancier" things on the menu. Most of the group had the breaded tenderloin, which is huge. I had a grilled chicken sandwich and it was not your typical tavern sandwich. It was moist, tender, and one of the best I've had. I truly recommend the extra effort it might take you to get here.
