They serve breakfast, hot plate lunches and dinner options. Homestyle comfort food. On Friday nights they have all you can eat catfish complete with your choice of 2 from a large selection of side dishes and hush puppies!

Great service, good food, cozy atmosphere. Pork chop lunch was very good and how can anyone go wrong with beer biscuits? Will come back on a Tuesday to try their corned beef lunch!

An original “Blue Plate” Restaurant. It has recently remodeled the seating and is a great place for a home cooked meal. The portions are very large (ask for a take out carton) & the prices are amazing.
