What can be better than visiting an old-fashioned inn and restaurant, set on a quaint street in a charming little village? You can't miss the Jarrett House. It's the two-story, clapboard inn, with rockers on the front porch, right as you turn off the main highway.
The interior was rather plain - could use a decorative touch, but I was quickly seated and my waitress was promptly there, giving me the vegetable specials of the day - squash casserole and tomato casserole. I couldn't decide between the two, so she suggested bringing me a "taste" of the tomato casserole. It was pretty good - stewed tomatoes the old-fashioned way with a bit of sugar, with a biscuit topping.
Fried chicken was hot and freshly fried, coleslaw was perfect for my taste. Tiny biscuits are brought to the table immediately, along with a squeeze bottle of honey.
For those who are conscious of sodium levels, the food is definitely lower sodium. I never use a salt shaker, but I did here. No harm-no foul, though, far better than over-salted food.
The staff is extremely pleasant, prompt, without hovering, and will give helpful suggestions if asked.
Would I stop again? Maybe, but well worth one visit.
