"Dillard House used to be an institution, and a fine one at that. I don't know if they have too many family members on the payroll or what... but it has gone downhill. A lot of people say they love this place; I bet they are the all-you-can-eat crowd. It has become ..."   [Read More]

The lunch menu at Dillard House. The roster changes constantly through meal time as some dishes are added and some are eaten up. This can provide a sort of tantalizing torture if you are waiting for a seat (as you will do on a busy weekend) and hoping that, for instance, Brunswick stew remains on the menu when it comes your turn to eat.

Not just a place to eat, Dillard House also is an inn, cottages, and motel, plus a stable offering rides on horseback or in a carriage. (Charles Ammons photo)
