Good but hot

My coworkers & I ate at this restaurant on a day when the temperature outside was 100 degrees plus with a heat index of 105 plus. The air conditioner in the restaurant had been out since the day before. Let me just say that if I had been by myself or with my husband, I would have left because it... read more

I visited Plymouth while exploring the area by bicycle and found a nice place beginning to reach for its potential as a small riverside town. I took a little extra time to enjoy lunch at the Garden Spot in downtown. I truly enjoyed this little oasis. The service was excellent and the offerings varied and very tasty. Love the sweet...

This is a locally owned family run place that has the best burgers and deserts. The staff is friendly and speaks to you like you are family. So stop in and have the ghost pepper cheese burger and some spirits and maybe some oysters for the G spot upsairs.

We ate dinner here on recommendation of clerk at hotel we had just checked into and this was the only place that looked open in "historic Plymouth" on Friday evening-other places and fast food out of town on route 64. Service was prompt, food very good- fried shrimp dinner and that amazing sweet tea! There was a group of about... More

We had a nice lunch there, but the visit was tainted by the woman at the cash register. When we mentioned we were from Massachusetts it was like we'd fouled the air. Her response was "well, God bless you. I'd come south every chance I got too". When we left my husband said "what the heck was that?" I replied,... More

Garden Spot lives up to its name - light and airy with trellises, plants and flowers. There is a subtle Christian presence here along with a full ABC license, no draft beers, but a good selection of bottles. We split a shrimp wrap, which came hot and toasted, large shrimp embedded in gooey melted cheddar. After lunch take a short... More

The shrimp wrap was outstanding. This is a spot where the locals eat and it is easy to see why. Food looked and tasted home made. No microwave here.
