We often stop in Emporia on our way to Wilmington NC and thought we'd try this charming old house restaurant since my wife likes antiques and historic buildings. We got there at 6:30 and were the only diners on a Thursday night and were anxious to try the Prime Rib which is what they're known for and what's supposed to be so good. The waitress told us it was cooking and wouldn't be ready for a couple of hours which was disappointing. So we ordered the London broil but same story. So we ordered the prime rob sandwich since they had enough to make that. Mine was good although quite well done and my wife's sandwich had 1/2 of the meat fatty and tough. When the waitress asked how everything was we told her about the fatty meat and she just listened and walked away. The grilled onions on the sandwich were excellent and the baked potatoes were large and properly cooked. You can decide whether you want to take a chance on this place. We won't go back.
