Good, sometimes great, food. Average service

Have been here several times, most recently the day before Mother's Day. Some dishes are remarkable, others are just good. Of the six people in our party, only half would ever re-order their dishes. For all the hubbub about the elk meatloaf, I thought it was rather uninspired. Top dishes for our... read more

Classy place with exceptional food. The shrimp and grits are very good, but my favorite is their summer strawberry salad. Their bison burger so also a best bite!

Three of us and the food was exceptional! Very good value and selection. service was slow, but according to our server, a group of orders all went in at the same time. Will definitely eat here again when 'in town'.

Plates on the Square is located in the revitalized section of downtown Carrollton, within walking distance of many great pubs, dives and shops. Parking garage close by. Our meal as part of a large corporate group was attentively served by friendly waitstaff, the servers anticipated our every wish. We sampled almost all of the dinner appetizers, and found them very... More

I was looking for bakery cafe that was rated here on trip advisor, but when I got into town found it was closed for repairs. Plates was on the corner so I gave it a try. They had a nice assortment of food and I opted for the pot roast, sweet potato casserole, green beans and broccoli casserole. All was... More

We ate upstairs on a Saturday night as part of a large (35?) group. I had the Charleston Shrimp and Grits and I must say it was amazing. I'm certainly going back for more. Only difficulty was that service was slow and the meals trickled out from the small dumbwaiter. Staff was too light for the size of our group... More

Although you could dine at Plate's for any occasion, it is a great place to take a special date or for a romantic evening. The food is excellent! Local chef uses local ingrediaents. Nice wine list and good champagne. The salmon was cooked perfect and side dishes added to the taste. The dining room is very open and beautiful windows... More

Very good food. Atmosphere is just fine. Service was good. I would take out of town friends there. Parking is good at nights, but can be difficult at lunch.

The food at Plates on the Square is EXCELLENT! Not only is the food excellent but is a great value too. Three of us dined and we had a BBQ sandwich with a side, grilled turkey Rueben with a side, and a burger and fries for about $25 with white linen napkins and a full place setting. This is our...

Fantastic place to eat, local chef using local ingredients. Try the desserts. Steaks were very good.
