Hard to make it in the restaurant business these days. People bitch and moan when a restaurant charges what it really needs to just to turn a modest profit. With the volume the hotel is able to do (I'm guessing 90 - 110 folks per day) it's nearly impossible. Not nearly enough $$ there to be worth it. There are so many expenses in a restaurant people expect to receive and not be charged for. Hope it hangs on and makes it.

It's typical of this county and this site that someone states good fact and then several a-holes follow with the same ol' hillbilly stuff. If it's open, you bitch. If it closes, you bitch that there's nowhere to go. Grow up Smith County.

I hope it does not close - I would love to see Digger hire someone like Doreen Stewart that knows how to cook and cook some things not typical and put some ritz in the place - I want it to be successful and it is beautiful.

Oh forgot to say you could even pattern it after Thomas House and Red Boiling and only do groups and serve them all at once at a certain time - lets give Digger some good ideas. i think he will run with it if he has the right person cooking and managing.
my 2 cents

I wonder if they will put a story in the paper blaming us for not supporting it with no mention of terrible service or food not to mention high prices.If digger would hire a hostess and real waitresses and do something about quality of food he might have a prosperous business

I hope its not true. Ate there a few times, always very good & prices as reasonable as anywhere else. If this cant make it, kiss Carthage goodbye forever.

I personally don't care if it stays open or not because both times I tried to eat there I received practically no service & the breakfast food was terrible and I woundnt go back if it was free.

Wasn't impressed the only time I ate there. I known of several guys whom eat there for breakfast. They say it's ok, little high in price for what they could get down the hill. I heard that they old overall that just closed (again) may be opening again!Any word?
