Nice Surprise

We had a late start on a Sunday, so were trying to find a place that was still serving breakfast at 11ish. The first few places we drove by were closed so we ended up here. There were lots of cars, so we figured it was safe. Once inside I looked at the reviews here on Yelp and some of... read more

We eat here several times a year, and while it really lacks in atmosphere, the staff are nice and the food is usually adequate. I have had really good food, and so so food. But you tend to find that in a lot of places if you eat there enough. They have 2 for 1 crab claws at certain times,... More

I have eaten at this restaurant a few times. As others have noted the fried crab fingers are excellent and many people go just for that item. It looks like a small family restaurant, nothing fancy. Not a place to take someone you want to impress. The food in general has been OK. Neither me or my date have selected... More

We eat there about once a week and sometimes two. Yes we do get "not so great" dishes sometimes, but the next trip the same dish will taste like granma cooked. (Sorry if your grandma can't cook). Montgomery does not that many great restuarants and never has. The one that do the best on a regular basis and privetly owned,... More

While my sister and I visited Dad in Montgomery, we had the chance to eat out a few times. Dad and his retired friends like this place, but I don't know why. Our waiter tossed napkins at us like he was dealing cards and then proceeded to tell us how he was making money playing poker. When he delivered the... More

The chopped steak was so dry you DAD to dip/sunk/immerse the meat in the tiny bowl of au jus. Otherwise some would be calling 911. The cornbread muffin was stone cold. The squash casserole was really egg casserole with a little squash. The fried okra was fair. The mashed potatoes had no taste and were barely Luke warm. It was... More

I am reviewing strictly for fried oyster lovers and crab claw lovers! Their oysters are huge and fried to perfection! 2 for 1 crab claws during the week from 3-7 dine in. Their claws are so delishious!

Sommer's Place is a local cafe serving lunch and dinner in a neighborhood strip mall. We have eaten there many times, and for the most part, we have been very pleased. It can seat well over a hundred patrons, but the area is divided into three areas and a small bar so even when full, usually at lunch, it does... More

I know it was probably at least 5 years ago since my husband and I visited Sommer's Place but our experience was so bad we will never step foot back in the place. Sommer's Place did not take reservations when we visited for my birthday. We knew we were in for a long wait but we knew it would be... More

The food was terrible! I don't think the fish was even tilapia. The waitress dropped a bag out of her apron which looked to be cocaine! Then she messed up our order twice. When I asked for the manager, needless to say she was very rude. I overheard the server gossiping and said my wife and I were just trying... More
