Had dinner tonight at Plates. The food is always great and the atmosphere is perfect for dinning. I had the steak special and it was cooked perfect. Very nice relaxing dinner and great food.

The atmosphere was simple. Service was prompt and kind, but the food was the best. We split a bowl of french onion soup (lovely), and the Croque Monsieur, a sourdough sandwich with black forest ham, smoked gouda, bechamel sauce, and we added a fried egg. Everything was well prepared, though the bechamel sauce was a bit bland. I would visit... More

Had lunch and my wife tried the turkey reuben that was ok. Not real flavorful. But the Harvest Turkey Melt was outstanding! Different combination with turkey, crisp apple slices, cheddar cheese and an outstanding brown sugar mustard sauce. Wow! Fries and grits were good! Service was fine.

We stopped in for a late weekday lunch. The menu was fabulous. It was difficult to decide. Everything we ordered was fantastic. This is a very nice restaurant right on the square. Server was friendly and helpful. He even tried to help us with our biking questions.

This restaurant does NOT deserve one check, they should get a THUMBS-DOWN 👎 for having the most exponentially rude staff I've encountered in quite a while. My friend & I dropped into "Plates" after reading the menu on this website, thinking, yum, and desiring a nice dinner, and evening out in Carrollton... BUT, we arrived at 4:55pm, the sign "downstairs"... More

I apologize profusely for your experience. I have researched what happened, and I truly hope the bulk of it was a misunderstanding. I do not believe my staff has ever refused service to anyone who could not make it upstairs. That is doubly true in that we were going to be opening the downstairs dining room in just a few... More

Maple bacon cheesecake! Not a combination I would normally consider but it was delicious! Our waitress was very knowledgable about the menu and made helpful suggestions. I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the special Rosemary chicken garden plate and the Guinness stew. Very different meals but both were excellent. You can tell that the chefs take... More

We are staying a week in this area. So far this is the best eating experience we have had. I choose the Pad Thai simply because it sounded interesting and I applied my rule of if you don't try you will never find anything new. It turned out better than expected. I hope we can return before we finish our... More

Have eaten repeatedly at Plates over the last several years. Food has always been good to terrific, bu the service can be spotty and even indifferent. Personally, I don't mind service if the food compensates for it, but recently it hasn't. We will return, but with diminished expectations.

Thank David W
