According to the website, this started as a little old country store from Lebanon, Tennessee. It seems like it should be very nostalgic, and they did have portraits and daguerreotypes and 30s fashion prints and old kitchen implement decorations on the walls. They say this is the kind of things that would be found in an old fashioned country store.

The girl who seated us kind of dowsed us to our seats. She walked ahead of us holding the menus in front of her, and she would seem to be going toward a table, and then veer off and go in another direction. She finally put us at a table in no-man's-land which none of the servers were knew that they were responsible for. So some of the service was done by the manager, and some by a waitress who was responsible for a lot of other tables in the section. She might have been Russian - she had an accent and her name was Svetlana.

Favorite Dish: I was not that impressed with the food. I ordered chicken and dumplings, and the dumplings were kind of flat like bow pasta (pictured), and they were covered with thick white gravy. I couldn't finish it. I also had greens (which were good), broccoli and cheese (you could hardly see the broccoli for the cheese), and corn muffins. Bob had fried chicken livers, corn, cole slaw and rolls. Both of these were $6.99. We both had dessert - I had berry cobbler ($2.39), and Bob had apple pecan streusel pie.($2.59) - both a la mode.
