Stopped in for an early dinner and have to say that most of the reviews got it right. Good sweet tea (essential to any meal) and large portions. Oyster po boy platter with jambalaya as the side can't be beat! Roast beef po boy and...More

We’v been coming to Oby’s for nearly 40 years and until the past few months, it’s always been wonderful. Our 2 most recent visits, though, one on a random quiet weekend in August, and the other today, on a game weekend, have been disappointing. Both...More

I took my son to eat there and Oby's has been an established place for over 35 years. Quality and service in dining is unparalleled in a very casual atmosphere. This continues to be a top 5 restaurant in Starkville. Others come and go. You...More
