For starters, one needs to start with R.S. Jones' fresh biscuits and cream gravy, which were aromatic, and reminiscent of biscuits that one would find in the fine restaurants in Nashville, Tennessee. This journalist was pleased that he made this decision. This eatery had a warm and pleasant atmosphere, as songs from The Eagles played in the background, including "Tequila Sunrise" and "Lyin' Eyes."

Their Beaumont Wedge is a real treat and the perfect meal, since it is comprised of a crisp iceberg lettuce wedge, coupled with cherry tomatoes, Cajun bacon, as well as chunky blue cheese dressing. It may be served along with either chicken breast, seared tuna, sliced skirt steam or grilled shrimp. This journalist went with sliced skirt steak, and the meat was tender and delicious.

For dessert, a fan of gourmet sweets ought to try their savory "Three Cookie Cake," coupled with whipped cream on the side. This home-made dessert is a fine creation of Chef Carole, and it deserves more than just a passing glance.
