I was impressed with this restaurant. Typical downtown look, but the food inside was beyond my expectations. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the people. Food was very good in my opinion and the sweet tea just perfect. They should bottle it and sell it.

The food was OK... More

The food is great. So much variety and the employees are very nice. Don't go there for the decor, go for the food.

Very impressed with the food. We ate with a group and the price was fantastic. We will go back. Not fancy by any means...but the food tasted great and the people working there were very nice and polite. Just what we wanted!

Want southern food? Fife's has delicious chicken and dumplings, fried green tomatos, cornbread, okra, fried chicken and fish. Oh yeah, they do have salads and vegtables too!

This is the best!! Good food and LOTS of it! We LOVE this place! The lines MIGHT be long on Saturday mornings for breakfast....be patient...it is well worth it! It is located in an older building and the dress is casual...you will see a lot of people dressed to the nines and business suits...but we all mix great fine! Be... More
