“Way out, but worth it”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I rode here with a friend and may never be able to find it again, but everyone else seems to be able to because on a Monday afternoon, it was SWAMPED! The food is decent; it's down home cookin'. The service is ok; they were REALLY busy. The location is adorable, though, as is the inside of the restaurant. Sit outside and watch the hummingbirds or overlook the lake. It's gorgeous! IF you can get a table out there, that is!

“Hidden gem.”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Used to eat here for lunch regularly untill I took another job out of town. Very good sandwitches and the red beans and rice are NOLA worthy. Proffits is out of the way near the Columbus Air Force Base situated by the aptly named Officer's Lake. Look for Officer's Lake Road sign and you will find it. Very popular with the pilots from the base.

“Great sandwiches in unique location”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Proffitts' Porch is difficult to find--located on a back road in the middle of a swamp between Columbus and the Air Force base--but it is worth the trouble. In the summer, you will eating on the porch and watching the hummingbirds. The Po Boys are good, but our favorite sandwich is the cold seafood pita.

Great atmosphere right on the river. Friendly staff. Lots of people enjoying themselves. Great food with a local flavor including killer red beans and rice and gumbo.

“Nice local place”
Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

I have been several times for both lunch and dinner. Cool, fun atmosphere. Don't expect much from the food, but they do make some decent sandwiches. Kids love it. Sit outside if the weather allows.
