The service was good and the food was great. It was the best chicken fried steak I have ever had in a restaurant. They made it like my mother makes it. The service was good and the price was reasonable.

In town for a conference. The place seems like a local hangout but was welcoming. Service a little slow at first. I had the Defendants Dirty Martini which was excellent. I was hoping for a good beer selection but it was lacking. My coworker had a Bloody Mary that she was not impressed with. I had the bacon chicken ranch... More

The salad bar was very good, but the crackers were quite stale. I had the mac and cheese with brisket. It was tasty, but others had the soup and sandwich. They were disappointed there was a limit on which sandwiches they could choose from. The onion strings were a bit greasy, but otherwise fine.

I have eaten there many times and always had excellent service. All the food is very good. The salad bar is small but a good choice.

I enjoy eating at the Courthouse Exchange, the menu is varied, they have a great salad bar and I love the tenderloins. They offer a choice of sides and their applesauce is outstanding. The is a great place for a casual lunch or dinner.

When I want a home-cooked meal, but don't want to be the cook, Courthouse Exchange is the best I've found. I started with the fried okra for an appetizer, had chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and green beans. The American fare menu covers all the favorites, including pot roast, fried chicken, and meatloaf, with a wide array of specialty hamburgers.... More

I loved the decor and history of the building. The food was incredibly tasty and decently priced. I had one of the burgers and it was incredibly juicy. The pie was really good too.

We were able to park right outside the restaurant at 2:00 p.m. We had beef stroganoff and beef roast. Both were excellent. For dessert we had chocolate fudge cake which we did not finish and took half with us for later.

Our first time at this establishment. We told James our waiter and he gave us a bit of background on the menu, comped us on a trip to the salad bar and gave us a tour after our meal. The place is very comfortable. My wife had the meatloaf with Mac and cheese as a side. She raved about both.... More
