Ten of us ate lunch at the Old Greenbrier Restaurant. Each of us ordered a different meal and each each remarked that he/she very much enjoyed the individual selection. The Hush Puppies are excellent and are unlimited...always more freshly made. The drinks are served in very large glasses and refills are free. The atmosphere is nice. We look forward to returning.

When I move to a new city, I search for some little "mama papa joint" that has the flavor of great home cooking and no upscale atmosphere at all - but that of the local community. If you love great BBQ, this is the place to go. And you'll always see it surrounded with cars and trucks - guess why! If you're looking for a nice place to take your wife on Mother's Day - this may not be it. Try Conner's Steakhouse for that. The Greenbrier Restaurant has been one of those family owned businesses for many years and serves the community very well. You can also take a group to one of their larger rooms - surprising how many people they can actually seat.

Home of the "true hush puppy"… The old Greenbrier restaurant is as home-grown as it gets. Overalls are not required, but our regular attire everyday. This truly is food like grandma always made.

Catfish is incredible. Hush puppies are amazing. Chicken fingers are shockingly delicious. Everything is fried. Service is fast and friendly. Definitely recommend. This is a staple of the community

Used to be a favorite, but NOT SAFE ANYMORE. Heath Score of 74, Repeat offender, last score was only 80. Ice maker needs cleaning. Dirty bins and utensils stored as clean. Cheese 54, Ham 55, Chicken 57, Ribs 54, Hamburgers 120. Damaged lids & bins. Great hushpuppies are not worth getting sick.
