Multiple Visits in 2014 – Usually in the evenings
In all honesty, this is one that I had not heard of until reviewing another restaurant and in reply several individuals commented about the food here. I have tried this location both with and without kids.
The building itself is well done with lots of country and rustic décor. Clean and inviting although I will say after visiting with kids, the décor becomes a temptation with the kids. The other set back in my opinion was that this location adjoins a salon and has a door between the two. The first time coming in there was a strong chemical smell that you would expect from a salon, not the Food that you would typically expect.
I love it when it is appropriate. The times I visited there was some classic country playing such as Johnny Cash. It was not too loud but audible enough to be heard and enjoyed. I always enjoy music that sets the mood.
Service: Service was good although the first time we walked in, there really wasn’t an indication of “seat yourself” or “please wait to be seated” I assume that is because a lot of the customer base is local repeat customer. That said, after we sat down service was good and prompt.
In our first visit, the food was excellent (Pulled port sandwich and Chicken fried Chicken) My wife even really liked the coleslaw which is really odd for her and the battered fries were an absolute winner. On the return visit I tried the Cod Basket, the breaded shrimp basket and the chicken strips. I was a bit more disappointed, there was not much of a rich flavor but rather all of the food was really oily. There is also a fairly limited menu for a “Hometown Café”. Since they do not open until 11, there is no breakfast Menu which is what I always liked in a true hometown café.
-Pulled pork sandwich with fries and coleslaw
-Chicken fried Chicken
-Breaded shrimp basket
-Chicken strips/ tenders
I would say that this is about average as far as places to eat go, based on the two experiences. Prices were reasonable and the environment was nice. Really I would say, stay away from the deep fried foods here and you will get a good meal. Keep the door closed adjoining the salon and circulate more of the food smells would help as well.
