Service was spot on. Breakfast menu offers a lot. Was told that they offer full menu all day. Breakfast served was hot and as ordered. Very tasty. Will visit again for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I had a friend invite me to breakfast at Old South. The service was great and the food was too. It is very reasonably priced and the owner even came to the table and talked to us.

Last Friday night, 6 of us went to the Old South for my Birthday dinner. It was my selection, and of course, I picked the Old South. You can never go wrong going there......always excellent food & service. And, a large selection of choices.

Small town diner feel, waitresses that know you by name, inexpensive food, home cooked style meals, and owners who are truly good people!

They have lots of good food and friendly servers so you can't go wrong. But if you love chicken livers you've got to try these. I think they're done absolutely perfect.

We have been eating at Old South since 1994. I love the salad with the house dressing, their patty melt, and breakfast. We have found that one has to time their meal because so many people are there all the time. If we go at...More
