    First timers get your free potlikker and corn bread! Portions were massive here and extremely buttery. The wait staff was very nice. Get an assorted bread basket!

    Great food. I recommend the tomato pie and broccoli soufflé. Also really enjoyed the bread basket. Their peach cobbler didn't live up to my expectations though.

    We arrived right on time! Right when they opened on a Sunday morning! The fried chicken did not disappoint, wish I would have shared a plate. I was stuffed with just the bread basket! Great service!

    If you're a vegetarian/pescatarian, in addition to the vegetable platter, their fish options are pretty varied and tasty. The blackened tilapia was as good as it gets, especially with some hot sauce!

    Wine sauce for the bread pudding is a little strong but the Mac n' Cheese was delicious and the greens were to die for!! Roast pork was very tender minus a few cart shards....get you an Arnold Palmer!

    The potlikker — salty, oily and cloudy with mysteries of flavor, with a stray collard leaf floating within — comes alongside a miniature cracklincorn muffin. Read more
