Enjoy eating here. They are consistent and the menu has just about everything you could want. I had fish tacos and they were very good.

Good food, especially on Monday (Chicken Fried Nation specials). Sometimes the pork chops can be dry.

If you like down home food and lots of it, Cotton Patch Cafe is the place for you. I went with a group of friends and we ordered a bunch of appetizers: fried green tomatoes, fried pickles, fried mushrooms and bacon cheese fries. Are you getting the message? I left feeling like I had gained 10 pounds.

We have eaten dozens of chicken fried steak dinners at this Cotton Patch restaurant, and I can say the serving I had was the worst we've been served. It was smaller than usual, thin and over cooked. If we hadn't been short of time, I would have sent it back. The sides were good as usual.

If you've moved away from your MeMaw's cooking, this this place should be your home-away-from-home. Delicious potato soup, fried green tomatoes and the best Bloody Mary. Don't pass this place up.

This restaurant is near our home and we have eaten there numerous times, always hoping for a better experience. The food is American home style and my favorite is the fried chicken breast.

Portions are NEVER the same! Used to love going there. Nice variety of menu selection. However, two of our favorite items have been their chicken strips and the chicken friend steaks. Finally stopped going rather than continue to be frustrated EVERY TIME!

I love eating here especially on my birthday, its free! I love the service, staff and the view. I ordered the catfish and shrimp combo. It was hot and fresh. the catfish was fried crispy on the outside and flaky on the inside. the shrimp is a good size and has a great batter. The squash casserole is quite yummy.... More

Has some good southern dishes. I recommend going before 8:00. Good prices and a good variety of healthy dishes and heart attack evoking food.
