Jenn was an excellent server. She listened and made great suggestions. The serving size was perfect for lunch. The soup was yummy. Peanut butter pie was divine.

We keep giving Plates a shot and keep getting mediocre food from the specials but excellent food from the standbys. It's sad to see how this restaurant has gone downhill recently and am rooting for them to get things together again. Most evenings, they run out of the specials almost immediately, and the specials are rarely something recognizable or appetizing.... More

Wow just Wow!!!! The waitress was very nice and so was the Manager. My husband didn't like all his tuna, so they gave him half off the price. They gave us a military discount. Parking is not the greatest. Burgers are the Bomb!!!

We had a late lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. Enjoyed one of the few outdoor tables on the balcony overviewing the square. Good chicken salad. Excellent service. Will be going back again.

Very good food. I've only been for lunch and the food is always excellent. Not a place to go for a quick bite, but worth the time it takes. They are always accommodating of a large group.

Friends and I stopped for lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. We were extremely pleased with the atmosphere of this restaurant! The tables were clean and there was plenty of space between them to enjoy private conversation. We ordered fried green tomatoes for our appetizer - delicious!! We enjoyed Ahi tuna tacos, shrimp plate and the turkey Reuben sandwich!! We... More

The location of this location is great, right on the Carrollton Square, however, the foo was okay. I worked at Georgia Power and stayed in Carrollton for a few months. This place is overpriced, but I guess the location makes up for that.

We had a private family breakfast upstairs and it was fantastic. The server was energetic and fantastic and the food was equally fantastic. The square is full of great food eateries and this is right up there with Samba Loco for the first places to stop. Absolutely recommended.

Pros: The food is very good here. We had specialized omelets that were delicious. The service was good. This restaurant is a little on the small size and has a long wait to get in on the weekend; but, we feel it's definitely a place we would go back to. We enjoyed this restaurant.
