in a converted church with annoying acoustics

I enjoyed the meal and the space is inviting other than having the tables too close together. This matters because of the acoustics in the airy old building. It's so bad you shudder when you see a troupe of people making their way toward a table near yours. You know it's going to be loud. I don't... read more

This is an old church that partially burned and was converted into a restaurant. They serve wonderful country cooked foods and delicious iced tea. The staff is limited but no one goes unnoticed or with needs not met. The meal choices change daily and everything I have eaten there is good. In season they have the best fried okra you... More

Each day people come here to eat the best home style southern cooking in town...and they return again and again from all over, not just from LaGrange...never any complaints, but lots of complements to the cooks.

Very nice lunch meal that is over the top with the veggies in an old church. The rutabagas are the best I have ever eaten seasoned with pork and sugar. The salmon croquettes are corn meal breaded and very tasty. The cabbage and field peas were fresh. The tea was fantastic never empty. A lunch truly fit for a king.

Because of this restaurant is in an old church the acoustics are the only complaint that I could possibly muster. Other than that the Taste of Lemon is a must for anyone visiting and especially living in LaGrange!

Because of the limited hours of operation from 11-2 on Monday through Saturday, it has taken me a couple of years to be able to finally visit. I've been eagerly looking forward to it. Sis and I happened to finally be driving through the area during their business hours. We were running late, and didn't arrive till 1:30. The parking... More

The waitresses were short staffed & we still got our food in a few minutes. They had everything we ordered. Go earlier. Only opened from 11-2. Great true southern food!

Visited this highly rated local eatery with a group of 7 for lunch with confirmed reservations. Entrees such as chicken pot pie, as well as such staples as cornbread and biscuits, were 'sold out.' The waitress forgot the desert order of 2 people. Overall, we had to laugh to keep from crying. I guess anyone can have a bad day!... More
