Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Breakfast would rival the breakfast your mama would make! 😄 Quite a variety of choices for breakfast. You won’t go away hungry. If you do, it’s your fault. Convenient location to both interstate exits off. I 75. A nice drive in a very quaint quite...small town. No wait wow! Prompt service. No sitting around waiting. See picture of the breakfast menu below. God bless. Press on, TomMore

We stopped about an hour before closing time and were greeted with a friendly welcome. Our waitress explained items we weren't familiar with and after we ordered, it wasn't long before our food was served. Salad was fresh and crisp, food was seasoned and cooked...perfectly, and there was plenty. We splurged and had country fried steak and chicken fried chicken with mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious and hot. Highly recommend!More

Stopped here on our drive from Louisville to Columbus. Great home cooking diner. The specials were lasagna or spaghetti with salad or coke slaw and garlic toast. We had a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich in white toast ($5.75) and country ham and eggs with...the best biscuits ever ($9.00) plus coffee ($1.95) and a piece of chocolate cream pie with the most amazing meringue on top. Everything tasted great. The pies are their grandmother’s recipe and she’s been gone for 10 years. The granddaughter was our server and her mother was working in the kitchen. We will definitely stop here again. Note, they only accept cash or checks - no credit or debit cards.More

I can only imagine that the people who wrote rave reviews are frinds and family this place was an example of everything you should not have in a restaurant. The staff had on dirty shirts and carried an infant around as they cleaned tables,took orders...and delivered food. A toddler walked around or lay on the floor the entire time we were there.At one point the infant was laid on the counter while the person went to grab something. The food was salty and mashed potatoes tasted like potato flakes. The pie was terrible,the merainge was so old tasted like paste. The bathroom was clean.More

My husband and I happened to be in Walton and was driving by this place and decided to try it. The Cod was just two triangle pieces of frozen pre-breaded Cod that tasted fishy and the breading with soggy. And the baked apples tasted like...it Apple Pie Filling scooped straight out of a can. Coconut pie was yuk. Waaaaay too much Coconut in the filling. I could hardly swallow it. The filling was also bright yellow. It was obvious they use yellow dye in the filling and crust was falling apart. My husband's Cheese Burger was over cooked. His Chocolate Pie tasted like fake chocolate. Hardly any flavor and crust falling off as well. The worse was listening to the female wait-staff being rude to customers. A family of 8 came in a half hour before they closed and those two female servers treated them so rude, they decided not to eat there and left. It is Friday night and hardly any customers. Between the bad food, rude wait staff and an interior that leaves a lot to be desired, I don't know why anyone would eat there.More

Local eatery with good sandwiches and great homemade pies. We can recommend the roast beef sandwich, the reuben, and the catfish. Very good coleslaw! The pies were exceptional: lemon meringue, butterscotch and coconut cream.

Looks like an ole-fashion diner, w/ WONDERFUL home-cooking food. Friendly staff and great service. Visiting the Ark Encounter and besides franchise restaurants there are limited places but we were very pleased and we highly recommend Family’s. (Note: Smoking is allowed but it wasn’t too bad).

Stopped here for breakfast while traveling to Florida. Staff was super friendly, and the food came quickly with generous portions at reasonable prices. Food was good home cooked meal, nothing fancy. Note: cash or check only! Only real negative - they allow smoking.
