The mason jars on our logo represent our family of six, Jon and Sarah along with our children Falesha, Klayton, Bailey and Emerson. We were blessed that Sarah was able to be a stay-at-home mom for many years, which allowed her to form special bonds with each of our four children. Sarah has always been a great cook, and her dream was to one day open a restaurant and share our family’s authentic homemade recipes with others.  Some of the recipes come from Sarah’s work in the kitchen over the years, while others have been handed down from both sides of our family for generations.  Some of the items on the menus are named after our family members, as well as our mothers.

 

The good Lord has blessed us with this opportunity to make Sarah’s dream a reality and we graciously thank you for your support.  We look forward to serving you and providing you with a ‘mom and pop’ dining experience that you feel is worthy of sharing with others.
