Poe Brothers Cafeteria is a lovely local spot that serves home cooked meals just like Grandma use to make. The portions are of good size and the quality is excellent. The ladies that work the line and the dining area are very sweet and knowledgeable. We had the Beef Manhattan which was piled high with fresh cut beef. The green... More

We stopped by and enjoyed a home cooked type meal. Atmosphere average but food was good, not outstanding, but good for a cafeteria and wasn't as expensive as their competitor down the road.

Poe Brothers has been around for many years - serving comfort food & excellent, delicious desserts. It's just down the road from Gray Brothers & usually there isn't a long line. Perhaps fewer offerings, but price is reasonable,and staff is friendly. My serving of green beans was huge. Husband got the beef manhattan & it covered his plate. You won't... More

The selections are so vast it is hard to pick. This is a hidden gem that deserves a great rating. From ham to fried chicken, mashed potatoes to rice, green beans to greens and apple pie to banana cream...you will not be disappointed!

Brings back memories, kind of like the old Howard Johnson Oasis. The staff was very friendly and responsive. The place has a nice atmosphere. Really felt warm and homelike, kind of like Grandma's house. The food was ok but good. Lot's of vegetable selections and choices and as it is a cafeteria service was fast. Unique dinning and you should... More

Went with a friend some criticisms on here are to harsh but somewhat valid. Food was fine, people were friendly. Other places are better but this place is less expensive. Value should be considered when eating out! I've paid three times as much at places that were brand new and not any better!
