“IT HAS AN OPEN SALAD BAR, IT GIVES YOU THE VIBE OF CLASSIC COUNTRY STYLE , FOOD IS STILL IN A MEDIUM BUDGET AND IS GREAT FOR STEAKS OR A BIGGER OPTION MENU. IT HAS A ENCLOSED BAR AREA SEPARATED FROM DINNING BUT YOU COULD STILL ORDER AND EAT IN THIS SECTION. ”

“Excellent cuisine, but open seasonally and only on certain nights - be sure to call first to confirm they are open. Ask for Jackie or Hallie as your server - you won't be sorry. The fried green tomatoes and shrimp appetizer is a winner as is the Key Lime Pie (unconventional, but EXCELLENT)!”

“The Point is a convenience store that also serves great Mexican and Vietnamese Food. We recommend the breakfast tacos, and the PHO.
