Our party of four visited late one evening. Unfortunately they were out of roast beef which was my number one choice. We ordered fried okra as an appetizer. No complaints; the okra was fried just right. We selected different entrees including meat loaf, fried chicken and fried pork chops. The entrees were good and had the home cooked taste. The... More

I guess I am in the minority here but I found the Swanson very underwhelming. Don't get me wrong...the food was excellent and the service was above average. But the wait for the food was obscene. Maybe it was just an off night or something, but it took an hour to get our food, and we were not alone. We... More

Great atmosphere. Food is amazing and plentiful. Great prices. ..highly recommend. Our hotel actually recommended it and I am so glad they did. It was beautifully decorated for the holidays and is registered as a historic place. It is Perry's first school.

I wanted to try the bread pudding but was too full from lunch. Our server was very attentive but not overbearing. Great service. I loved the biscuits as well. Great place... More

This is a nice little restaurant in small town Georgia. Awesome food - biscuits were great, chicken and dumplings were awesome, Mac-cheese was great. Pricing was excellent. Place was clean and our waitress - Autumn did a great job. If you every stop in Perry, GA. You need to give them a try.

It is in a very old house with a lot of character!! I had the fried chicken and my husband had the chicken and dumplings! They also bring... More

Newly renovated and looks great. Food is always very good, well presented. Service is usually good but sometimes they need a little wave to be reminded to come your way.

I was in town to make a quick sales call with a colleague from New Jersey (bless his heart!) and I wanted him to experience real Southern cooking. This was certainly adequate. It was enough to wow my Yankee friend, but this Southerner knew it didn't far overshoot the mark. Prices were reasonable and staff was delightful, but the food... More
