My family and I ate at Ms. Lois' for dinner. I ordered their special ''meatloaf" and It was really good. Although it was crowded, The service was excellent too. I'll be back when I'm back in town. Thanks!

I was looking for good Southern cooking, and I found it at Ms. Lois'. The blackened catfish was to die for, tho the front desk clerk from the gulf coast said it's not as thick as where she comes from. Even the standards - macaroni and cheese and coleslaw - were great. I highly recommend.

In this little town, we found some great breakfast, friendly service, and southern atmosphere. You just have to get over the locals looking at you funny. Must have the fresh blueberries pancakes.
