Go to place for out of town guests!

Whether we do takeout of dine in, many of my out of town guests always want to eat here. Our favorites are the fried mushrooms, soup, and sometimes fish (only thing I don't rate high). Service is sometimes wonderful, sometimes where you have to ask for everything. I always have to ask not to have... read more

Skip the tourist barbecue joints in Memphis and head north to Millington for tender, smoky, fall-off-the-bone ribs. I've been a regular at Old Timers for over 20 years, and their food is always fresh and delicious.

Liked the atmosphere and lots of Southern food selections. Catfish and smoked chicken salad good. Good service.

Lots of people say this is the best restaurant in Millington. I don't get it. The catfish is over cooked to the point of being rubbery. Like it was fried, reheated and then fried again. The mashed potatoes are bland. The corn bread and rolls taste store bought. The fried chicken is good but be prepared to wait 30 minutes... More

My luncheon with friends was average. I ordered southwest egg rolls, which appeared to be made in-house. They were tasty. One of my friends enjoyed some of her meal, but her greens were gritty. When we complained to the server, she just said, "They weren't washed thoroughly". The model train going around the room was charming. Our service was slow;... More

My husband and I recently visited some family in Millington, TN. We decided to take everyone out to eat and came across this restaurant. There was nothing special about this place. The food was just ok. Three of us ordered the catfish plate. Unfortunately this restaurant, like many others, passes off Swai as catfish. So, the price should've been much... More

Looks like it's closed forever. Or, if it is there, it's behind an abandoned restaurant. Too bad, it's a cute downtown area, but there's not much going on.

As you will find there are not a lot of dining places in Millington in comparison to Memphis. Old Timers is a locally owned and operated restaurant that you should definitely try when in Millington! There are daily lunch specials that are awesome! On Wednesday' the lunch special is Corned Beef and Cabbage and it is great! The menu is... More

Staff was very friendly. Many locals go there for lunch. Dinner was nothing to write home about but friendly staff.
