Great food!

We enjoyed our lunch very much. The fried catfish was wonderful, as were the onion rings. My mom and I split a reuben which was just excellent, piled high with tender corned beef and plenty of sauerkraut, served with 1000 island dressing on the side.

I had not been to Dale's for approximately a year or more and decided to dine with a friend who loves southern style cooking, Dale's certainly has great choices of southern side dishes as well as entrees like chicken fried steak and catfish. They have several steak choices as well and they were offering a special with your choice of... More

If you love "fried green tomatoes" and "fried catfish", this place is for you! My traveling buddy rated this the best southern meal she's ever had! I can say that the fried okra and mac-n-cheese were outstanding! For down-home cooking, southern-style, this place is great! Kudos to the desk clerk at the Days Inn who recommended it to us!

Start with the fried green tomatoes and go from there. All fresh and hot, great home cooking. I have the catfish dinner with 3 sides and it was perfect. Service was excellent, the tea glass never ran out. They know how to keep you coming back to this place that has been here almost 50 years.

Dales has been around it seems forever. They started as a small drive up icecream stand and today are a full service sit down family restaurant and a tradition for may families. They serve fresh vegetables and a great variety of them. The burgers and steaks are excellent - Dale will probably be back in the kitchen grilling your steak... More

I had chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, pink eye peas and corn bread. Sweet tea to drink. Great place to eat.

I've never actually been to the restaurant but have had their food catered countless times and we've never been disappointed. The dressing is delicious, taste homemade. Casseroles are consistently yummy!!

I was there over the weekend, and left my debit card after paying. I didn't realize I left it until two days later. I went back up there and the bus boy had found it, gave it to the waitress and she put it in a safe in the office. They returned my card, and I was very happy. The... More

We chose Dale's Restaurant for our Thanksgiving meal this year. I called in my order and was told that I would receive a free pieces of sweet potato pie with our meal. What a deal. As always the food was delicious and the to-go staff were friendly and efficient with my order. Great job! I have never been disappointed with... More
