I enjoy eating at the diner. I split an appetizer of their fried oysters with a friend, and the oysters tasted fresh and sweet. The batter was crunchy, which I liked. I hang an omelette for my main course, and it was okay...I like fluffier omelettes, but the filling was good as well as the biscuit. My friend had a steak and baked potato which she said was good, and it was a good-sized portion. The waiter made a fresh pot of coffee for me, and kept our beverages filled. They serve breakfast all day, and have a good selection of hot and cold sandwiches, plus the staples of diner food, like meatloaf, chicken and dumplings, Mac and cheese, and a kid's menu. They often have a fruit cobbler on the dessert list, and those are homemade and are even better served warm with a scoop of ice cream. It's a wide menu, if you want some diner food. Lots of regulars are in there, so that says a lot about a place.

Great little diner....That has delicious food and nice and friendly wait staff! This is a little place off the beaten path, with good prices and a nice selection of comfort/country cooking options. They also have large cakes to choose from if you have got a hankering for your sweet tooth :)

I enjoy their breakfast. Very small and usually busy in the morning. To-go orders take a little longer than expected. But overall a quiet place to meet with someone to chat.

I found this restaurant in a search for catering and a banquet hall for my family reunion this past week. I live in a different state, so all of the arrangements were made by phone or email. Lynn, the manager was so helpful and patient with my ever changing needs based on budget. The catering for the cookout was efficient, delicious and well-serviced thanks to Lynn, Brad and Chef Andy. We were late due to a flat tire and Lynn even volunteered to pick us up. The burgers were especially a big hit. The banquet hall is a beautiful intimate room that has a separate entrance from the main restaurant. Again, Lynn was there to greet us and support our questions and needs. The waitresses Brittany, Kelly and Brad were pleasant at all times and helpful, especially with the elderly family members. The fried chicken was amazing as well as the mac and cheese. The desserts were fresh and delicious. I can only say great things about this restaurant. Thank you for making the 2019 Bishop Family Reunion a success!

I eat here often. A few nights ago my friend and I came in for dinner and had Katherine serve us. She was fantastic. So personable and fun. We really enjoyed our experience. She's a great server and a cool lady. Now the hostess is another story. No clue how she is still employed. She must have something on the owner. Literally the rudest person I've seen in an eating establishment.

Love the food at this eatery. A first time experience wasn't good for one of our guest when the order was warm and not prepared as requested. It was busy, and the manager replaced her meal with something else. I'm a regular and will continue to eat here.

This was our third visit for breakfast and the food has been great every time, and I highly recommend the home fries (think they may be among the best I have ever had). Also the was exceptional today, Lisa took great care of us.

Perhaps my favorite place for a local breakfast meeting. Best guest? My daughter, Kathryn. We still call it "Ricky's Diner." Excellent food and Excellent service.

Food is great. Value is great. Only true diner I could find in the area. Needs to clean up a bit. Change the plastic black table covers. Not good. But this is about food. So 5 stars.

Delicious food! Our group had steak, salmon, meatloaf and spaghetti. All meals were prepared perfectly. We came in one half hour before closing and still got amazing service.

Well, the food is always good, but their customer service is a little off if you catch my drift. Some people get a lovely greeting and smiles, tables wiped. This lady wiped every table except ours. When they get busy they don't come around as much. Seems like the elderly get treated really well. I mean, not that the shouldn't, but how about everyone. I will continue to go because the southern food rocks. I wish they would upgrade the inside. The chairs are rickety andTtttttttT old. They are too close together for my liking.
