Ordered the catfish fillet with french fries. My wallet was larger than the single fillet. Fries were greasy and limp. My friends had the all meat omelet. As one put it, another restaruant to cross off the list. Service was very good. Will not return.

We drove from Madison, while home-shopping in the Huntsville area and had breakfast here, only to be underwhelmed by every aspect of our experience. The food, service and atmosphere was all very average and underwhelming. Once we move there, we will likely not go back...More

I believe it may be but can't promise that. I can say that the food is delicious. You would need to call and ask or go by.
