I don't know quite where to start, but I guess discussing the sweet tea is a logical place since this is what I first tasted. It was the perfect blend of tea and sugar, not too sweet, not too bitter...just right. Fried chicken was excellent and the collards were HANDS DOWN the best I have ever had in a restaurant.... More

Decorating reminds you of grandmother's or your youth. Pimento cheese is to die for. Saturday brunch can't be beat. Get there early if you don't want to wait in line. I like grilled liver or chicken & dumplings. Also has plenty of vegetables and other entrees.

Quaint little restaurant in Plaza Midwood. They have some old time favorites, as well as some original plates. The service is good, the food is just as good or better. On a nice day, sit on the back patio, and don't forget the desert.

Being a local, and being a Southern Belle, I know my comfort food! Dish is simply wonderful and if you've never been you need to give it a try. You'll be hooked. It's real home cooked food with flavors that make you want to go back for more. The salmon patties are to die for! The chicken dumplings make you... More

Dish is a great place for a quick bite with friends. The food is quite good; the portions are generous. I enjoy the vegetables. The menu is eclectic - a little something for everyone. The servers are personable and take good care of guests. Prices are reasonable.

All four of us enjoyed our food. I'm not sure that there was a crumb left on any plate. So the food is great down home style cooking, the choices are plentiful and each of us found something we really enjoyed. The service, though, may keep us from returning to this neat place. Our waitress delivered our menus, took our... More

The service was excellent. I had the chicken dumplings the gravy was thick and flavorful. The only problems were that the dumplings were small and the butter was to hard to spread on the cornbread.
