Courtyard Cafe is the place to go for great southern cooking at lunch in Gadsden, Alabama. I have never had a bad meal here. I usually get the grilled chicken but the fried catfish and chicken pot pie are favorites as well.

Whether a special occasion, or just a daily lunch, the Courtyard Cafe is absolutely the best restaurant in Gadsden. Lunch specials daily include meat and veggies and dessert, for dinner, you must try the steaks.

The Courtyard has been around quite a while. The staff is always friendly. Locals keep it busy, especially at lunch time. A great place for dinner.

This was our first time visiting Courtyard Cafe for Dinner. We both ordered steaks - a 6-oz Filet and a New York Strip. They were both cooked to perfection with a wonderful garlic butter on top that melted as we ate, adding to the amazing...More

Good food at affordable price - sometimes the wait may be a bit long, seem to have reduced portions over time.
