We're a family of 4, showed up without a reservation, and were seated in the middle of the afternoon within 5 or 10 minutes. The seating is extremely small, so reservations are recommended. I think we just got lucky. A couple came in after us and were told it would be a 2.5 hour wait (maybe inside seating). Our little ones (1 and 4) loved the table closest to the road so they could see the horse carriages coming out. The food is really tasty and the portions are large. The staff are very friendly. Can't wait to visit again. A taste of the Old South in a historical house in a relaxed setting was just wonderful. Our 1 year old (who is all fingers and can't wait to be busy doing something she shouldn't be) stayed entertained easily just in our little corner by the road. I was pretty amazed. Thank you to the wonderful staff for also making my little birthday cheesecake super special!
