Stroud's Restaurant

As you can see this restaurant uses every inch of space, including this fireplace mantel for dish storage.  This house was built in 1829 as a two room log cabin and grew as the children arrived until it finished as a 10 room house.  In 1954 the house was purchased for a restaurant which to this day serves traditional fried chicken family style.  There are other specialties served but plates of fried chicken, green beans, potatoes and cinnamon rolls are the norm.  Since this is an old log cabin, the rooms are cozy and there is always a line waiting for the restaurant to open.  Everyone is content to wait for the dinner awaiting them.

I'll be right over for lunch. And be warned, I might stuff myself with cinnamon rolls!

This does look cozy! I remember having dinner at a similar place sometime in Utah when I traveling for work. It was a locally famous fried chicken place that drew lines. It wasn't in a log cabin but, in an old house.

Had dinner there several years ago. Had to wait about an hour for a table, but the time went fast as we got involved in conversation with other folks. The fried chicken is excellent as is your picture.
