    We loved our dinner at the restaurant. We had the cornbread and it was delicious. I had the chicken pot pie and my wife had the fried chicken, which both were delicious. Our service was great and the restaurant is a winner.

    Excellent lunch. Great waiter and service. Fried chicken sandwich was delish but a bit salty for my taste. Chicken tenders were great too. Great place!
