We went to dinner at the Homeplace restaurant in Catawba, VA, which is only about a 10 minute drive into the hills from where Dixie Caverns was.
If you look closely, you'll see the flagpole with the confederate flag. Saw lots of these flags everywhere and lots of streets and buildings and areas or parks are named Washington, Jefferson, Madison, or Jackson, etc.
The Homeplace restaurant is inside an old 1903 farmhouse, and this is the backyard.
Super good food. Alot like the Amish family style restaurant we went to in PA. Very good fried chicken and biscuits. The corn and beans don't look that special, but they were salted and spiced up really yummy.
Eating inside an actual old farmhouse was really neat too.
Waiting for our table in a porch swing wasn't so bad. :)
