“Great Locally Owned Restaurant”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

It's our neighborhood breakfast spot, but it also happens to be the best breakfast in town. Great service, delicious food, reasonable prices. We take all our out of town guests to Winchell's. Breakfast is great, but so are the daily lunch & dinner specials. Blackened mahi mahi tacos are at the top of my list. All their home cooking favorites are delicious (it's my momma's favorite fried chicken). It's also a great place to sit at the bar and have a beer with friends. Can't recommend it highly enough.

“Great reliable, moderate price food in casual atmosphere”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

They call it a sports bar (and there are plenty of TV's) but I just consider it a local favorite. No need to dress up, great service, delicious food and moderate price. I love the tomato soup and grilled cheese. Also the grilled salad. My husband's favorite is the pecan crusted rainbow trout. Always order the fried banana peppers for an appetizer. Children are welcome too. They don't mind splitting a check if you are with a group. Plenty of parking too.

“Breakfast hot spot for locals”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

My breakfast included a four egg omelet, breakfast potatoes, and two biscuits with sausage gravy for $10. My friend had the pork chop. He said it was good. It definitely looked good.

Despite strip mall location, great sporty atmosphere inside. Very friendly service. Very popular; the place was packed.

“Go Blue!”
Reviewed January 28, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Saw this restaurant while I was driving by looking for a great place to eat and watch a game. People there are really friendly and will have a drink or two with you. Great southern food selection.
