We were out for a leisure Sunday drive and decided to stop by this little eatery for lunch. So glad we did. The plate lunch was fabulous and ample portions. But the Lemon Crunch dessert was to die for. Best I have EVER had. I highly recommend this locally owned restraunt. We loved it. Service was wonderful. Staff very friendly.

Great service, great food, pleasant atmosphere. I enjoyed my visit here over the weekend. I got their catfish which tasted great and their corn salad was absolutely delicious. I will come back.

I was happy with every item on my plate, but even happier with the waitress. So friendly! The portions were large enough to take home a to-go box. If I had... More

Don't go expecting good service or good food. We were very disappointed. The service was terrible. Our first hint should have been that the patio bar was packed and there were few people in the restaurant at 7pm on a Saturday night. We waited 30 minutes for our server to take our order and that only happened after we ask... More

Heard about this place from the tourist information center as we crossed the Alabama line. Got there at 1:57 which was fortunate because the stop serving lunch at 2. We love the fried chicken, and the fried green tomatoes.

My daughter and I went to Romie's after a day of Christmas shopping. Our waitress was nice and helpful. We had fried mushrooms as an appetizer. They hot, the batter tasted great, and they were not greasy at all. She had the Ribeye Sandwich, and I had the Cuban sandwich. The Ribeye Sandwch was stacked with meat and grilled just... More
