“Worth at least 1 visit”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

We went with a large party and it is a beautiful place, but food was just average. Not even as good as Cracker Barrel. The service was good. The best part was probably the live bluegrass music. Glad I went, but probably won't go back.

“worth the trip; taste of the south”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

We had a large party and tried a bit of everything! From fried green tomatoes, to fried chicken, smoked pork chops, salads, amazing biscuits..... and wash it all down with sweet tea! Great, friendly service, tasty food and a beautiful little drive to get there. This is a perfect southern restaurant - not too fancy, but nice enough.

“Great food, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed September 19, 2011

Dined here Saturday night, 9/17 with friends. The menu is excellent--varied, unique and reasonable. The food was great, I had the meatloaf, and the service was friendly, efficient and accommdating. Our only regret was that we arrived about 5:05 and the gift shop closes at 5. Also, couldn't seen the mansion from the restaurant! It was a great meal and we'll be back again with more friends!

“Free live music, friendly sevice, and great food”
Reviewed August 2, 2011

We visited this restaurant mainly because of the free music and were extemely happy with the food, atmosphere, and friendliness as well as the music. They have a happy hour that lasts until 7:00, which surprisingly included the time of the no-cover-charge live music. They encourage patrons to bring wine with no corking fee, which we did. Our waiter, Ryan, gladly provided an ice bucket for my wife and sister-in-law's wine. My brother had a domestic beer for $2 and I had a local craft beer for only $3. Our appetizer was homemade barbeque potato chips with a wonderful horseradish dip. My brother had chicken tenders with sweet potato fries. The rest of us had barbequed beef brisket sliders and outstanding onion rings. Everything was delicious. BTW, the band, Bedhed & Blondy, was excellent.
