Music good. Ambiance good. Food…well… We were staying in a nearby hotel and went across the parking lot to order takeout. It was a couple hours before closing on Xmas Eve, so we knew we’d be waiting, which was fine. A very grouchy hostess lady told us to wait for the to-go order waitress to take our order. We figured the grouchiness was not wanting to work on a holiday, which is not great, but fine. We just wanted our food. So we ordered and waited. Two checkout staff assisted us in finally get our order about 10 minutes later than promised. But it’s Xmas Eve, so we understood. We took the food back to our hotel. We’d gotten biscuits and gravy and some pancakes and breakfast meats. When we got to the hotel though, there was no gravy. I went back and the checkout lady who helped me earlier was quick to get it. (She didn’t even need the receipt as she remembered me). Then I got back to the hotel to eat. Again. The biscuits and gravy were fine, nothing special, but about what we expected. The pancakes, though, were horrible, very dark on one side and tasted burned. Honestly, hotel waffles would have been better. The bacon was the opposite of the pancake, limp and underdone. We tried to eat it anyway, but it was strong tasting, like it was cooked about a week ago and reheated today. The sausage was hard but sort of edible. My wife ended up eating the biscuits and gravy and I ate leftover Chinese takeout from last night. We threw the rest of breakfast away. We were looking forward to eating here again on our trip, but now we have decided to just get Chinese take out and eat that for breakfast instead. (Seriously, go to Red Pepper down the road in the Park and Shop. Get the General Tsos. It’s out of this world.)
Service was great. Ham was so salty it was inedible.
When a person thinks biscuits and gravy they think where is the closest cracker barrel it's as if they spilled some crackers into their biscuits that were in a barrel and what spills out landed on the stove and they cooked it and it turned out to be delicious! Enjoy the fancy toys that you might encounter near the entry or exit. I bought a puzzle there one time I solved it in like 30 seconds but no one else can yeah yeah that's how it went.
No hot chocolate? Really? How can that be. Food was pretty good, service was just OK. Ordered a breakfast with biscuits and gravy. Brought a basket of biscuits and a bowl of gravy. But no plate. When I asked for a plate she seemed confused as to why I would need a plate. She never brought a plate. Now that I'm saying this I am changing my rating from 3 to 2 stars.
Old favorites eaten with friends and served by a great staff made for a wonderful evening of visiting. Extensive menu, including all day breakfasts, good prices. The general store is a fun place to shop for unique items and gifts.
