We stopped at this restaurant for breakfast at the recommendation of some of the local residents we had met. We were not disappointed. It is a place that the is frequented by many locals. It is always a good sign if the food is good enough for repeat customers, not just one time tourists. The atmosphere is that of a... More

Food was fine. Onion rings especially good. My husband had the Philly Cheese Steak and said it was one of the best he's had. I had the grilled fish sandwich. Would have like a bigger piece of fish but what I had was good. Nice to have it grilled instead of fried. I had the fries, fat ones, that could... More

Visited during a visit home to Georgetown and had a wonderful time, as usual. The food was cooked to perfection, especially the fried green tomatoes! Great portions and amazing quality for the price. Someone in our group left a package at the table and the server actually tracked us down to return it! Always a great experience at Thomas Cafe.

We stopped in here for lunch after attending to some business in Georgetown. It seemed like a real locals' place and had an appealing menu. Entering the café is like stepping back into the 1950s, in a very good way. I'm pretty sure the booths and tabletops go back decades, but they give you a homey feeling. You know you're... More

Thomas cafe still serves the kind of food I remember growing up in the south in the 50's. If you're lucky and gumbo is on the menu, take a quart home and put it in the freezer for a winter day. This local hangout is always our first choice for lunch.

Came here for lunch with the family while visiting Georgetown. I got the crab cake sandwich which was good. My daughter got the cheese steak which she loved. Waitress could have smiled a little more, but she kept up on our drinks which was good. Would go back again for lunch if in the area.

Things you should know before you go to this restaurant: 1. This restaurant closes at 2:00 PM; stopping in for a late lunch doesn't work here. We entered the restaurant at 1:45 and rather than tell us they were getting ready to close we were given poor service and sub-par food. 2. The "shrimp and flounder basket" is like an... More

It was actually 2008 when I was here. I am a foodie who travels for great eating experiences. The shrimp and grits and key lime pie here still rank as the best eating experience if my life.
