What a treasure in this tiny town. The Monty Cristo w pimento cheese was inventive and delicious. Po Boy rocked, too. I'd like to come back for the rotating blue plate specials.

We both had the turkey and brie sandwich with sweet potato fries. It was very yummy and I would eat here again. Nice atmosphere and good service.

Traveling through Fayetteville on backroads traveling South one Sunday and ran across this restaurant for lunch. I was surprised it was open, since Yelp seemed to show that it was closed on Sunday. Overall, I'd say it has unrealized potential. Three categories below -- things I liked, things I didn't like that are choices that the restaurant made, and things... More

I ordered Togo from Okra and the sides were just ok. The smoked pork was delicious, but could have used some more sauce. Also, the corn bread thrown in my bag was rock hard. No joke. As someone who orders Togo often when traveling for work, my biggest pet peeve is getting the worst bread, potato, etc. because you are... More

Located on the town square, this is a lovely cafe in a beautifully decorated old building. Lunch and dinner are offered with brunch on Sunday. I enjoyed lunch here yesterday. Blue plate specials are featured daily and bar-b-que pork and fried catfish were the day's. The catfish was superb as was the fried okra. The sweet & spicy slaw was... More

This restaurant is in the center of Fayetteville. You might drive right by if you aren't looking for the address. Inside it is small but nicely decorated. We were greeted and seated quickly. The waitress was extremely friendly and answered our questions about items on the menu. We tried the shrimp and grits and the shrimp and andouille gumbo. Both... More

After four times eating at Okra, I hope I'm through. The food is not particularly good and the price is too high. Owners want to be gourmet, but just don't quite get it. No bar, but you can brown-bag your own wine.

Drove up from Huntsville, for a little "Day Trip". Checked TripAdvisor, for the best spot for lunch. Intrigued by OKRA's menu and reviews, we decided to give it a whirl. I got the Roast Chicken (very moist & tender), Wild Rice (very good), Sweet & Spicy Slaw (ok, not great), Fried Okra (fantastic). My husband got BBQ Pork ( excellent),... More

Went to Okra on Sunday, March 30, to celebrate wife's birthday. Both had smothered pork chops, fried okra; I had mashed potatoes and she had the baked apples. Wonderful meal! At a time when so many restaurants use powered potatoes for their mashed potatoes it was a treat to have something which had been pealed in the kitchen and cooked... More
