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

Typical southern fare with great fried crab claws, and they are big and good. The macaroni and cheese is very good, along with the pot roast. Collards greens are weak. The prime rib sandwich is excellent. Best time and prices are 3-7 happy hours during the week.

Their crab claw appetizers are delicious... as is everything that I've had on the menu so far. The decor could use some work (a bit old and dark), so could the menu design (not very streamlined), but the staff is friendly, the food is delicious and the prices are good, and that counts for more than the decor!
