Whats on the Menu Grilled Cheese SandwichGreat Food and Great Company!

It’s hard to beat a good grilled cheese sandwich made on buttery country white bread with just the right mix of mild and sharp cheddar cheese. Add bacon if you must, and a bowl of homemade soup or a fresh, local salad.

Food doesn’t have to be fancy to be good, satisfying and healthy. Our menu features a group of simple classics. All our soups and salads are homemade with fresh ingredients and we feature fresh salads using seasonal local grown produce. Other favorites include East Carolina-style pulled smoked pork barbeque, Chicken Brunswick stew and pinto beans with onions and skillet baked cornbread.

Salad Plate

Through our relationship with local farms and bakeries we are able to bring you seasonal and delicious food, in a relaxed country atmosphere. Saturday lunch times are a great opportunity to eat fresh local food to the accompaniment of Americana Music on stage.
Ice Cream Eaters


The ice cream counter is a favorite destination for young and old alike. We serve hand-dipped Hershey’s ice cream and a selection of old- fashioned milkshakes, malts, sodas and sundaes. Try our fresh fruit milkshakes, a brownie all-the-way or a rich mocha malt.
