BEST fried chicken I've ever had! My family has been coming here for years, even though we've all since moved away, we make a point to come back! Every holiday we stop in for a take-out order of their sweet coleslaw and fresh homemade

Always a friendly place to eat. A place where you can find a lot of seniors at the tables :) The food is selective and many are supposely home made with the "Broasted Style" of cooking to be the main theme. The Home Made bread is popular and always fresh. I have had fish that seemed to be overcooked, I guessed it as thier cooking oils or whatever they use to prepare it. I agree that the cole slaw is a little over whelming as it appears to be runny but the taste is very good. Other meals seemed to be well prepared and had an excellant taste. The waitress"s always are friendly and make you feel right at home while you are eating. Overall the Restaurant appears to be clean when there isn't an influx of people eating or at times waiting in line for a table. Parking is tight and at times limited during peak hours. Old town atmosphere, lots of room.

Well, that is a change. Bad food and good service. I ordered the "baked fish" dinner with coleslaw and fries. My wife had the same with mashed potatoes. The fish was terribly overcooked and...chewy. Yes, chewy. Their prized coleslaw was served cold, but tasted like cabbage in melted ice cream. It is far too sweet! The mashed potatoes were from a box, the french fried were served hot, but very low quality (like Ore-Ida, but dry and crumbly). Every condiment is Sysco-branded "House Recipe", like the kind of stuff you'd find at a carnival or a restaurant just trying to pay the bills. It's technically - ketchup, ranch dressing, fill-in-the-blank - but it's the lowest quality stuff on the market.

We finished the evening with "homemade" slices of pie, a chocolate cream and coconut cream. Good, maybe this will be OK...or not. The pie was 3" of whipped cream and 1/2" of pie. Near the crust, the whipped cream tasted like whipped butter. Ugh.

As if the food wasn't bad enough, we got to enjoy the fruits of food "gninosiop" (read backwards: a word I can't say in this review, apparently) later that evening.

I'll never return.

Pros: The servings are large

When you find a place full of "mature" customers at all hours of the day and all days of the week you know they must be doing something right. Great food and reasonable prices means you might have to wait for a table but it is worth the wait. Try any of the Broasted dinners like the "combo" with fish and chicken and you will be a "regular" from then on....
