We were referred to this place by a local, they were absolutely correct….this restaurant makes great home style food. Fast friendly service, great items on the menu, great food…..we loved it.

The food here is excellent with generous portions. The chicken livers are the best we have ever eaten. One of our favorite in the area. It needs a little updating since the pressure washer in stored in the ladies restroom and redecorating a bit. However....it doesn't bother anyone in the waiting line. All we want is good friendly service and good food. Imagine the business they could do if they enlarged the diningroom and you didn't have to wait so long for service.More

We tried to visit twice previously, but closed once for special party, and another time closed for training. Service was prompt and efficient. Food was fresh and tasty.

Don't believe the 1 star review that appears below. I am a local who eats here at least three times a week & you cant even get two steps in the door before they give you a warm greeting. They are right to your table...with menus & drinks & depending on what you order it may take a little time. THIS IS NOT McDonalds !!! The food is absolutely great .......... or I wouldnt keep coming back. It's all the comfort food choices I need after a stressful day. And you cant leave without trying the desserts. I LOVE this place & I am blessed that they made it thru the pandemic. Keep going guys .......... I love you & the food. Dont let some uppity flat-lander trash what is one of Clayton's BEST eateries. Stay blessed.More

Terrible service. Sat there for a half hour and still didn't have our food. First they said they lost our order and it would be right out. Then they still couldn't find the order! You would think they would make an extra effort to get...the order out since it had already been lost out of order. After a half hour, we left!!!! What a waste of time when we are on the road home to Florida!!! Don't waste your time going there.More

Several in my group ordered the veggie plate because all of the side dishes sounded good…and we were happy with everything we ordered. It was really good food and our server was so sweet and conscientious. Would recommend!

We stayed in Clayton Ga for a week recessed had two meals at this restaurant. Supper - supper both times ( and I say “supper” IE evening meal since this is a down home type place!) Very good both times. Various orders for four of...us. I had a great hamburger steak with onions and gravy and collards and mashed potatoes as did one of our friends. His wife had baby back ribs. My wife had country fried steak. All four of us enjoyed. Not fancy decor but did I mention it’s a down home type place? Second time we all had hamburgers figuring they would have good ones - with home fries and or onion rings. We figured correctly., When in Clayton highly recommend this place. Good friendly courteous service also.More
