We stopped in for lunch and both had the special. The flounder was flaky and came with three sides and the Palau was tasty.All for $8 95! The place was crowded with mainly locals and regulars. The booths are probably unchanged since the 1920's and the atmosphere is like going back to a sleepy southern diner. Try the bread pudding... More

My husband and I ate here on Wednesday. Since I don't eat seafood, I have rated the cafe based on his review. He states that his meal was very good, especially accompanied by fried green tomatoes. My plate was a daily special of roasted pork loin and vegetables. It was good, but not outstanding. The cafe could improve with a... More

Great Food made southern style, Very friendly staff. Located in beautiful downtown Georgetown, SC. They close a 2pm, not knowing that we went in at five till two, yet they served us a great lunch.

This no frills cafe had some of the best food we've had in awhile. The shrimp and grits are cooked like they are supposed to be without all the modern adaptations. And the onion rings were one of the stars on the table! Everyone was very friendly and it was certainly a local place. You know if you see shrimpers... More

We love coming to Thomas' Cafe! We usually come for breakfast because they make grits like no one else in the area! Everyone in the family has their favs - mine is cheese omelet, grits and a side of bacon. My hubby's favorite is corned beef hash, eggs and grits and adds that the pancakes are really good! Have always... More

Friendly service and great food Thomas Cafe has both. My favorite is the Shrimp and Grits with green fried tomatoes and a side of pickled okra.

Food is always served piping hot and all homemade. Wish they would stay open later in the day, but overall excellent.

While visiting this rather quaint and lovely area, my lady companion and I stopped here for lunch...its was say just after 1:00 p.m. and the waitress was removing the daily special from the window....had a shortage! They close at 2:00 p.m. Here the place may accommodate ~ 26 people. The interior is initially cute, but quite dated. We seated ourselves,... More

We make a point of stopping in for lunch when we are anywhere nearby. The daily specials are so good. Not a fancy place but just good tasting and filling food.
