My wife and I finally arranged a morning where we could be off together. She had heard amazing things about your food. So this morning we called our order in and waited the 10min before coming in to pick it up. We drove down to the river to eat inside our car. I ordered the Slinger and she ordered the Boy I’m stuffed - Hers was ok, was missing the whipped cream as shown in the picture online. No biggie. When I went in to my box of biscuits and gravy - I was expecting light fluffy “homemade” biscuits. But what I got were super rock hard biscuits. I broke both my plastic knife and my fork trying to cut them up. And when I bit into them they were super dry even covered in gravy and eggs. The eggs were good. But the biscuits were tough. I didn’t want to leave a bad review because times are tough for small businesses - I just wanted you all to know that the Slinger meal was really bad on Saturday.

Hi! I just wanted to compliment your staff. I was at the Green Gift Bazaar on Saturday. On my way out, an elderly couple was struggling up the outside steps; the wife had a cane and trying to hold on to the railing, but couldn't always reach it due to the wet leaves that had gathered against the concrete wall. Seeing this and hearing her comment on being afraid of slipping, I went back inside and completely interrupted the bartender(?) who was talking shop with a couple guys - sorry again for crashing your conversation. I explained the situation and before I could get to suggesting someone clean it up, he stopped me and said, "I'll get a broom and take care of that right now." He excused himself to the two men and off he went to take care of it. So, thank you to the bartender for recognizing the hazardous nature of the leaves, and thank you to ownership and management for makings sure your staff knows that safety is a priority. And thanks to all for the great coffee I indulge in from time to time. :)
