Love having Dean's for a lunch meeting or as a great dinner for takeout. Food is delicious and the price is right. Reasonable portion sizes too-you won't leave hungry and you won't be wasting food either. Friendly staff and daily food specials.

Ribs are the best in these parts, but only served on Fridays. Very inexpensive and good, homecooked meals.

Turkey and dressing, fried catfish, and grilled pork loin were amazing. The greens, grilled squash, and deviled eggs are all A +. We three shared a coconut cream fried pie and wished for more. We'll be back next time we're in the area.

We are located in historic Jackson Square. This property once housed Jackson Square pharmacy. After 55 years in the same family this property became available because the previous owners wished to retire. We were lucky to get it. We renovated and tried to keep as much of the original charm as possible. We hope you like it.
