Such a great place. You feel like you are stepping back in time the moment you walk in the doors. From the old "penny candy" to the stage full of old time music, you are reminded of simpler times. The cute older men that sit in rocking chairs outside add even more charm to ths precious place!

If going on a Friday or Saturday night, I would guest getting here early. This place gets packed!

The Floyd Country Store


Wonderful atmosphere, mostly delicious Southern food & desserts, adorably kitschy candy and tchotchke assortment, welcoming dance floor and company. The macaroni and cheese was gooey and flavorful, the kale quiche was rich and interesting, the pickles were crisp and enormous, etc. Some dishes were not spectacular, but we were impressed overall. The pecan pie was decadent, as we the other bars and cookies we sampled. Visiting the Country Store gives one a nice opportunity to step away from contemporary activities and to enjoy a simpler, yet nonetheless captivating dance party

Merk's Place

Great food, friendly and caring service. I definitely recommend it especially for lunch. The sandwiches are delicious especially the BLTs and Burgers. If you're looking for a quiet, calm place to enjoy a good meal check Merk's out.

The Cumberland Restaurant


This was our first time here. We have passed by so many times without seeing. Very glad we saw it and stopped Wednesday. Food was so good. We got from a burger to fish to beef liver. Excellent!!! Our plans next time by, We will stop. All 3 of us were very satisfied!! Atmosphere is great!!Food: 5/5



Really love the feel of the restaurant, somewhat feels like I’m stepping back in time. Food is always great!



Awesome place. Good people, excellent food,(they got my eggs right), and awesome service. Definitley will be coming back again for catfish on Friday evenings!

Granny Bee's


Granny Bee's is a fantastic restaurant, where the locals eat. You can't beat the customer service, they are happy always have a smile for you. The portions are great and full of flavor. If your child orders pancakes, get just one to start "they are the size of a dinner plate. Would highly recommend finding this place and eating there.



My spouse had the pulled pork special and I had the fried flounder. Portion sizes were good, service was quick & friendly and price was reasonable. This is a small town restaurant, a little dated but clean and you get what you pay for. We stop by whenever we are passing through and never had a bad experience. I had not tried their rice pudding until today but will definitely be ordering it again.

Joey's Counrty Kitchen


 The food was great.  Two orders of the country fried steak (excellent), an order of pork tenderloin (very good), and a Donnie breakfast special which comes with some steak (well flavored).  The best sides were the mashed potatoes (we think homemade!) and macaroni salad, though the green beans may have just been canned.  We finished things off with slices of apple pie and pecan pie which were quite tasty as well.  All in all, the meal for a family of four was $50 and worth it!  We would definitely return if we drove through Rural Retreat in the future.

I came here on a Friday afternoon after a long and busy day for an early dinner / late lunch. It was my first time visiting but I've always wanted to stop by. The diner is very old fashioned and is cozy. There are classic diner style stables and benches.
The workers here were all on top of their job. I ordered the steak omelet with hash browns and asked for crispy. It was a really good omelet and hash brown combo with some ketchup and Tabasco sauce. At the end, my friend and I shared a Boston cream pie. It was decadent, but not overwhelming. The service was great and the price was very good!

Foot of The Mountain Cafe


We met some friends there on a Friday evening.  The place was busy!   THey have a decent size parking lot along with indoor and outdoor seating.
They have a menu with a lot of variety.  The food was good and very reasonably priced.
Just as an FYI-  The large or full size salads are HUGE!  Seriously, it was enough to share with 4 people.  
If you are passing by here, it is a good place to stop and it isnt a fast food chain.
