Ordered chicken salad and it was great! Service was good and fast. Large windows to see the lake and a very nice outside eating area.

A landmark and delight we always stop in. My husband craves bed beans and rice and this place always delivers. NICE TIP: They package perfect for big or small group take out

Thoroughly enjoyed the seafood salad. The house special dressing is quite good...would have had one of the good looking sandwiches...but cutting back on the carbs.. Beautiful setting

Our motorcycle group from Alabama visited Proffitt's Porch on April 12, 2014 based on reviews we had seen online. We are always in search of unique restaurants that are close enough for us to make a day trip for lunch. Each one of the 16 people in our group was very pleased with their meal. We ordered a variety of... More

Proffitt's Porch is "dining understated" with a twist, informal and delicious. This could be Columbus' diamond in the rough and it surely goes a long way to great, informal dining. Secluded on Officer's Lake in Columbus Mississippi, stands an older frame structure with a large outside porch with picnic tables. You climb the stairs and are greeted real friendly like,... More

My fiancé and I chose to visit Proffitt's Porch for our Valentine's Day dinner. We were looking for a more casual, quaint feel, and it did not disappoint. Their seafood gumbo was fantastic, and both my fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed the French dip sub. Bottom line: great prices, delicious food, and a relaxing atmosphere make Proffitt's Porch a must-taste... More

There is nothing better than enjoying a great meal on the deck overlooking Officer's Lake at Proffitt's Porch. I have been going there for twenty-four years and it is always great. If you like good sandwiches, red beans and rice, and chocolate chess pie, this is the place for you! Skip the chains and ask a local for directions.

We have eaten at Proffitt's Porch several times and always enjoyed the experience. Love the open air porch and the 'out in the country' setting! Their Red Beans and Rice is some of the best around, and the Chicken Salad plate is always a treat!

I rode here with a friend and may never be able to find it again, but everyone else seems to be able to because on a Monday afternoon, it was SWAMPED! The food is decent; it's down home cookin'. The service is ok; they were REALLY busy. The location is adorable, though, as is the inside of the restaurant. Sit... More
