    Restaurant is clean and well kept, just a little old and dingy looking, but food & service are great. Fresh tasting oysters. Staff was exceptionally friendly & on the ball. I will return

    Awesome stuffed peppers, meatloaf and chicken & dumplings. The only other place to get this kind of home cooking is my mama's house.
