have been here many times. Have always had very good food and service for brunch and for their lunches - highly recommend for those meals. As for their dinner, while my wife has always enjoyed her meals at dinner, i have never had a dinner there that was worth eating. they have the singular distinction of serving me the worst... More

No surprises. Good food for a good price. You can reliably take business partners or families here for lunch and have a nice meal in a good environment.

The best time to hit this place up is on a Sunday. That is the day they have lunchtime blue plates. For $9 I can get fried chicken with Crawfish sauce on top (seriously divine) and two sides (I prefer the mashed potatoes and purple hull peas.) My only complaint is the sweet potato cornbread that comes with the meal... More

I've been here once with friends for breakfast, and was extremely impressed. Everything on my plate was artfully presented and delicious. My friends had similar experiences. It is a bit pricy, not too bad, but enough to make it a special occasion kind of place. I'll take my wife there for dinner some evening, without a doubt.

Restaurant Tyler has the deserved reputation of being one of the top two or three fine dining experiences in Starkville. Of the three ( with the Veranda and Harvey's being the other two), I consider the menu at Restaurant Tyler the most interesting and I have never tried an entree that I didn't enjoy. The decor and lighting sets an... More

A fine upstairs restaurant doing excellent farm to table lcoal dishes. But an even better bet is the lovely downstairs bar The Guest Room, where you can eta almost the same menu in a cool subterranean setting with excellently made fine cocktails. I suggest mixing a classic Sazerac or margarita with the weekly taco special as a first option.

Tyler is always one of my favorites in Starkville. They have exceptional blue plate specials. Even on Sundays. Their Sunday brunch menu is outstanding. Chicken and waffles, waffles your way, and several breakfast items are all wonderful.

Went here for lunch. Nice lunch specials. Great vegetables and entrees. Service was prompt and courteous. Southern food at lunch. Reasonably priced.

Superior friendly customer service. The hot food was hot and cold served cold/cool...perfect. I started with the Crawfish Dip. Then, from the Blue Plate menu, their Fried Shrimp (Fantastic!) a Vardaman Sweet Potato Cornbread muffin along with Vardaman Sweet Potato Casserole (to die for) Purple Hull Peas! I love sweet potatoes! The atmosphere is classy yet casual; and I felt... More
