This is one of the best local restaurants in town. Great food, especially the fried zucchini, served with a smile. Always happy to support small businesses.

The Hungry Man breakfast is excellent for someone who is hungry for breakfast. Lots of eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns, grits, and pancakes.

My friend and I enjoy eating breakfast at Compton's Kitchen on a regular basis. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly. The service and the atmosphere feel like you are eating in your own kitchen. Everyone makes us feel welcome and we enjoy meeting the other folks who are eating at Compton's too.

Compton's is a great place to enjoy typical diner/comfort food. Their breakfasts are wonderful and their lunch plates are awesome. Everything appears to be home made and is very tasty.
