We had two dishes here: 1. the grouper basket for about 10 bucks. Great fish, done just right with lots of fries and two good hush puppies. 2. Baked trout with fries and hush puppies. Big piece of fish seasoned just right. About $14. Has lots of daily specials and great lunch deals.

It's casual, user friendly, above average food, reasonable price, good service. A repeat place. We prefer the bar for dining, but happy with dining room too. Convenient to all in N.E. Tallahassee or when you're out and about. Consistenty good food.

I have eaten here many times with my meals ranging from fried Catfish to a Sloppy Joe. Great early bird menu for dinner. The food is great and the service better. There is a crew of people working there making sure your every need is met. Great for a quick lunch or a family dinner. I have had great parties... More

We regularly eat at Old Town Café because its has very good food, a friendly staff that always attends to everyone's needs, and is family oriented. A nice variety on the menu with daily lunch specials available as well as early bird (until 7:pm) specials in the evening. Outstanding 'Soup and Salad' with great onion soup and buttermilk garlic salad... More

I've only been to this restaurant one time and my first impression was it smelled dirty and old. The menu is too long - too many items; they can't possibly have that many fresh items available they must be frozen. I do not recommend this establishment.

A previous reviewer, also a local resident, asked, "What the heck happened here?" I share her curiosity. I've been coming here at least 6 times a year for over 20 years, and was very disappointed on this last visit. As previous reviewers have pointed out, Old Town Cafe has been a mainstay in northeast Tallahassee... nothing fancy, but a dependable... More

.. since we moved to Tallahassee, 6 years ago we have been eating at Old Town about 3 times a month, lunch and dinner. I like the 'old diner/cafe' feeling and everyone is very friendly. Some of the booth seats are very 'rump sprung' and need replacing. I find the service is not as attentive as it used to be,... More

They cook food like your mother and grandmother cooked. The selections often include local seafood. Try the meatloaf.

Once we entered the door, we found Old Town Cafe to be warm and inviting. The server was attentive and the owner, Marsha, was friendly and engaging. The menu was heavily into seafood, but had lots of choices for people who prefer steak and chicken. Try the Ceasar salad as a side. The dressing is light and flavorful. The croutons... More
