Love their food! These ladies know how to make good, home cooked meals! But the best are the desserts. Everything homemade......Strawberry pie, red velvet cake......just to name a couple are the best I've ever had!

I enjoyed my meal at Oil Lamp. The pie was especially good. The cafeteria style and bland tables really took away from the ambiance.

Love the home cooking at Oil Lamp. Always friendly, always plenty of choices. Lots of veggie and meat choices, salad bar. Love those rolls. So convenient for take-out dinners. Great place to take out if town guests. Highly recommend. Check hours and days they are open. They do close a couple days and some evenings. Try the dessert or if... More

You must try the Peanut Butter Pie!! The restaurant is set up cafeteria style with plenty of options. It is where the locals go.

Very good home cooked meals! You go through a line choosing from a variety of meats and veggies. Menu changes daily. Can sit down and eat or take it with you.

Great Southern food at reasonable prices. Fast "walk up counter service" casual setting. Plenty of tables and free refills on drinks. We ate here 3 times in 3 days! We took 3 teenagers the last time for lunch and they all enjoyed the great food and wonderful desserts.

This place was recommended by the desk clerk at the hotel. The meals are priced similar to the old "blue plate plus two". You enter and progress down a line similar to a cafeteria. You have a nice choice of salad items. Then the meat and vegetables. They are served to you. I selected a country fried steak, Mac and... More

The food at the Oil Lamp is always good. There is something for everyone as they have several meat choices as well as numerous vegetables to choose from daily. On Thursday and Friday nights, they offer several additional choices from the kitchen. The smoked ribeye is very good. The price for the ribeye is reasonable as well especially if compared... More

LOVE this establishment and food choices! There is something for everyone and staff is so friendly. Don't forget a slice of pie or cake---best ever and the sweet tea is pretty good (and they do to-go cups!)!!!!

A desk clerk at a local motel told me about the Oil Lamp Restaurant and said, "It's like having home cooked meals away from home." I found them on the Internet and found they are open Monday-Friday and they have hot and cold foods. items change daily but the food is always well-prepared and tasty. They offer desserts in addition... More
