We stopped by for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. They weren't too crowded, as we got there around 1. There were were 6 of us and we were seated quickly. Our waitress was personable, and she was very helpful. We had the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer, and they were good. Two of us had the guacamole grilled cheese... More

Time for a night out!? You should try Plates. It was our fist time. The food was great. The service... they were very busy, yet they were still very attentive. The atmosphere was welcoming, and we enjoyed our time together.

We were on our way home from Nashville and stopped in Carrollton for the night. The front desk clerk at the hotel suggested Plates on the Square. Weather was beautiful so we chose a table outside. The food was very good and served promply. The Charleston grits are the best grits I've ever eaten. Our server was Silvia and she... More

We had the best waitress. I enjoyed the crab stuffed flounder and was able to swap sides. Everything was great!

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
