We received a recommendation from the tour guides at Bellevue Mansion and were not disappointed. Quaint little old church, nicely air conditioned i might say, immediately met by the owner who actually had the church and little side houses moved to this location many years ago, nice little 87 year old woman. This is a meat and three place, I... More

When coming to a La Grange for a historic house tour trip this is a must place to eat. The setting was a quaint old church with home cooking from Ms. Betty. So quaint that you can call that morning to see what she is cooking up for the menu. My husband was impressed with the food and said it... More

We visited here for lunch and it was delightful. The server was a true Southern belle and the food was awesome Southern cooking. There were many items to choose from. If you pick the veggie plate, you got a taste of 10 different items! It's not fine dining, it's wholesome country cooking. It is in a repurposed old church which... More

We were recommended this place for lunch by a man in the tourist board office. An interesting building, we found it full of people so we thought it must be good. How disappointing - food only warm and not a very high standard. We wanted something local, not your normal chain menu. The pineapple casserole was the best, the chicken... More

I took a group of about 40, so with us, the place was packed, but the service was excellent and the food was so delicious! The historical value of the building just added to our enjoyment. We would highly recommend them to anyone visiting LaGrange!

I recently was in LaGrange for the first time in years. I knew that I had to go to Taste of Lemon for lunch. Taste offers a variety of entrees which change daily. Fried chicken, country fried steak, pork roast, turkey/dressing, chicken and dumplings, salmon croquettes, poppy seed chicken just to name a few. I believe there is generally 7-8... More

To start, the concept is adorable and interesting with the restaurant being inside the sanctuary of an old church. Instead of pews and a pulpit podium, you have tables and chairs and awesome architectural features. The food is tasty with an old Southern flair and a small handful of meat and vegetable options. The place can fill up quickly with... More

This is a locally owned "meat and 3" restaurant. The food is good and tasty but not truly outstanding. The place gets crowded around noon but wait times are usually short. Many locals eat here 1-2 times a week. Taste of Lemon is inside an old church building and while this leads to some interesting architecture it also means that... More

If you want to sample and taste authentic Southern Cooking this is the place. Charming setting in an old church building with good food. Any northern visitors that want their first taste of real home cooked southern food, this is the place. It's all good, from Fried Chicken and Salmon Croquettes to an all veggie plate.

Everyone who comes to visit us requests to eat lunch at this restaurant. It is set in a quaint church building. They are not open for dinner. The staff is excellent and the food even better. The menu is not large, but always delicious and changes every day. They always have many wonderful vegetables and salads to choose from. My... More
