“Great food...great service!”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

My wife and I have eaten here many times and have always found the food to be consistently good and the service to be prompt and friendly. We visit most often on warm days while riding our bikes on the Charles City section of the Capital Trail and the servers have always been gracious in offering to fill our water bottles with iced water. Add excellent food to that kind of customer service and you have a five-star destination. We particularly enjoy the fried green tomatoes appetizer followed by Edna's grilled chicken sandwich or the chicken salad. We usually avoid desserts but were recently tempted by the homemade bread pudding which we had to split because it came in a generous portion that was too good not to share. The grill is across the street from the Charles City Courthouse which is convenient for judges on Harleys as well as families on bicycles.

“Should only be a last resort”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

This place was the worst restaurant I have been to in years. The bartender harassed us about the personal discussion we were having at our table. Many locals consider this place the option of last resort

“Great stopover on the way to Williamsburg on Route 5”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

The eating place is in an old country store. It's an old character full of characters that man the bar and wait the tables. The service is great and very, very friendly and chatty, especially if you eat at the bar.

The catfish is the best we've had in years--also plenty of good sandwiches and burgers. Ask for the homemade potato chips--they're super.

Can't wait for a return visit!

“Great meal”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

I am confused by the negative reviews! Four of us met here for dinner, one couple from Williamsburg and one from richmond. 2 had the pork chop dinner and the other 2 had the Charles city chicken. Both were excellent, they came with green beans, roasted potatos and a roll. The bread pudding was excellent as was the coconut cake, no complaints, great service, excellent food! Will return!

“Avoid some of the dishes; others are goo. Service very slow.”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

The pulled barbecue sandwich was very poor. I would not recommend ordering it. The coffee was very, very weak. One friend ordered the pork chops--they were very mediocre, he said, and they had slathered barbecue sauce over them. Service was very slow. Waitress was forgetful. Food coming out of the kitchen was very slow, too, especially given that all our group ordered were sandwiches--nothing fancy from the kitchen. The rest of us who orderedenjoyed the jambalaya soup and the sandwiches. The place does have a nice atmosphere.... just avoid the dishes that I mentioned. The desserts were excellent.
