Had an early dinner here. Arrived at 4:30, so no wait and very attentive service by a pleasant, knowledgable waiter. Cute, clean, homey place with crayons and coloring pages for the kids and breakfast all day.
(We saw several breakfasts served. )
Meatloaf was dry and bready. Mushroom gravy on the side was gelatinous, so I asked for the alternate tomato sauce, which was better, with a Mexican taste from chili or chipotle peppers. My mom was very pleased with her chicken and dumplings: hot, with little round drop dumplings, and a good amount of chicken.
Sides were so-so: Mac and cheese that had no cheese taste, floury-tasting sauce. Unusual molasses/bacon green beans were cooked too much, and bery sweet, but hey, this is the South! Cole slaw made from red cabbage was improved with additional vinegar and some sugar at the table. Was pretty tasteless prior. Cooked spinach was good, as was cornbread and a yeast roll. Desserts are made in-house. We tried the coconut cake: two layers of slightly dry cake, with frosting unlike any we had ever had: almost pure grease. Buttercream, we were told: not very sweet at all, no vanilla or coconut flavor. Just heavy and greasy. Toasted coconut sprinkled on top and sides. Not very good.
Service was great. We'll try again, but sandwiches might be a better choice.
