“Really good food and reasonable portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

About 8 PM there was no crowd so the place was quiet and we could talk to each other without shouting. Server was very good, knowledgeable about the menu, efficient, and attentive to our needs. The food was really good. Haddock, blackened and sautéed, was moist and each was seasoned without being overpowered by the seasoning. The home made tartar sauce was excellent as was the lemon pepper sauce and the remoulade sauce. And the cream corn tasted like it was made from fresh corn and could have been the best thing we got. The amaretto pie is a long standing specialty and they do know how to make that pie just right, great flavor and texture. This was a meal worth the price!

“Quiet and restful setting to enjoy an evening meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Very nice colonial atmosphere. If you like fried green tomatoes we recommend them as an appetizer. Their 2-piece chicken dinner offers a generous amount of meat and the Haddock was superb. Waitress was very good, always wore a pleasant smile and was attentive to our needs. Nice quiet and restful setting to enjoy an evening meal.

“Pie pie pie!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

As everyone says the fried green tomatoes are very good! I had salmon and it was pretty good - basic though, nothing too special. Our table had 4 different types of pie (all handmade in-house each day) and they all were great - especially enjoyed the amaretto. Server was a tad bit abrupt - she let us know we were on her time - other than that it was enjoyable.

“Just Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

We went to this restaurant based on the recommendation of the hotel we were staying at. They gave us a coupon for a free plate of fried green tomatoes. The tomatos were delicious, but that's where it ended. Our party had the southern fried chicken, which was very dry and mostly inedible; also the salmon entrée was delivered to the table cool and was returned to the kitchen. Our server seemed inexperienced; we were given the bill before we even finished our meal. The hostess did show her concern for our disappointment, but didn't offer any compensation.

“Excellent recomendation!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

We checked into our hotel & asked the desk clerk for a recommendation for a place to eat. We told him we wanted something we couldn't find in every town. He recommended this place. We were given a coupon for free fried green tomato appetizer. They were very good. We also had the nightly special of crab stuffed salmon ($19.95), 2 piece fried chicken ($12) and ameretto pie ($5). Everything was excellent. Our waitress could have been friendlier & filled my tea glass again, but the hostess was friendly as could be. All in all, we would go there again because the food was so good.
