It's a small country kitchen restaurant. All the food is homemade. The grilled catfish was great. It's not on the menu but you can get it grilled instead of fried. The homemade desserts are pretty tasty.

Overall,a terrible experience. Ate there today but never again. The food was ok but i wasn't impressed. My husband ordered a burger. His bun was stale. The prices were way overpriced for what you get. Our waitress was not very friendly at all. It is really small inside which made me feel uncomfortable. Wish I had just went to Mickey... More

We read the reviews which were not very complimentary, but the catfish deal (all you can eat) intrigued us. However, we set aside our catfish crave and ordered the 2 steak special for $11.99. With this price, we were expecting a small thin steak, and we got them. Both were cooked as ordered, but Hubby's had a large piece of... More

Chicken charred chicken instead of chicken-fried. Too much sage in the coating, when there really shouldn't be any. Cooked so long it was dark and after the first cut, all the coating popped off a dried piece of jerky. Potatoes were just ok. I hate to go to a chain when my money can go to a local business. But...

We've eaten at Higdon Square Cafe a number of times. Alas! Each time gets a bit worse than the last. Alas! As locals, we really wanted this place to make it. Tuesday evening at 7:00. The waitress seemed annoyed that we were there. While we waited for our meal she stacked chairs on adjacent tables and swept the floor. While... More

I started going there when the chef was from Louisiana and the food was home cooking. At its best. But in the last six months it has gotten worse. I wonder if the chef left. I won't go back again

We stopped by this place and yes, staff are friendly and outgoing as others have mentioned. How-ever-down home country food? To some maybe, but actually no, it isn't. We ordered liver and onions and a small salad each..It took over 20 minutes to get the order and I had to ask for my salad which turned out to be lettuce,... More

I can't put it any plainer than that! It's the best I've ever had in 36 states!
