Looking to get the maximum amount for your buck? This place serves a plenty! The value for the meal is exceptional, especially, in today's economy. I loved the mac and cheese, squash souffl , lemon chicken and Waldorf salad! They also have a take-away store where you can choose from a wide-array of goodies. Every bite was music to my mouth!

Yesterday I went to the OK Cafe take out. They have all kinds of great stuff to go including vegetable soup. I asked the cashier if the soup had gluten in it. Her response was "Gluten, what's that? No, I don't think so." Thank goodness another employee heard my question and was kind enough to go get the chef for me. Some waitresses in the dinning room do know about Celiac's Disease and are a wealth of info about what you can't have at OK. Like all their fried foods are fried in the same oil with items containing gluten. Other than all that, their breakfasts are wonderful, and on Saturday you can have breakfast til 2pm! They are pretty pricey compared to other restaurants, but their food is pretty good.

This is NOT the place to eat if you are on a diet or want to eat healthy! But oh is the food DELICIOUS!!!! Their cornbread muffins are to die for! We went for lunch, and yes while there was a wait, it went by really quickly (we were seated in less than 5 mins) and the service was good - our server kept the ice tea flowing and made sure we were taken care of. We love this place and can't wait to go back!

They have good food - food that a bumpkin like me can pronounce. Good service - they take your order and bring you your food... simple. Nothing extraordinary and unexpected. That's why everyone goes here ... hello? If you want upscale for a business lunch, go to a foo-foo place. If you want decent grub in a decent place with easy parking right off the expressway, go to OK.

This is my favorite place for a weekend brunch. There is always a wait, but it is worth it. Bisquits and gravy, and all the trimmings. Then you can take home meatloaf and fried chicken for supper too.

OK Cafe has been a favorite of mine for 20+ years. I believe that I have had everything on the menu over the years and honestly, never had a bad meal there. My favorite was formerly the chicken-fried steak but I stick to the more heart-healthy broiled salmon now. As others have mentioned, the sweet potato chips and milk shakes are fantastic. The squash souffle, macaroni and cheese, and collard greens are also recommended. As one appalled reviewer mentioned, there is an artistic rendition of the old Georgia state flag, a relief sculpture, containing the Confederate stars and bars on display. There is also a framed explanation stating simply that the piece is there as artistic expression and not as a political statement. There are, in fact, numerous interesting pieces of art on display in the restaurant. OK Cafe is owned by the same company that owns Bones, the famous steakhouse and Blue Ridge Grill, right across the street and rated by some as one of the 10 best restaurants in the country.

My husband and I go to Sunday breakfast at OK Cafe quite a bit. They have awesome pancakes, omelets, biscuits, and cheese grits. The food is reasonably priced and the service is usually good.

Good, unpretentious food--the service is usually fast and friendly. The Ok Takeaway section in the back of the restaurant is a great option if you're in a hurry. It's a little more expensive than your typical diner, but still a decent value.

The food is average, a few sandwiches, salads etc. Their meatloaf and the shakes are pretty good. Food is priced ok. It gets loud and very busy, would not take clients here.

My husband & I ate at OK Caf for the first time in March 2008. I loved their onion rings. We were sitting at our table in just ten minutes, (great for a Friday night) and had a waitress at our table in no time. Everything was cooked to perfection and the service was outstanding.

My experience here was so-so at best. The service was extremely poor. We waited and waited to be served, while the waiters/waitresses were standing around chatting with one another. The food was typical bar-like food: greasy & lackluster. We'll be taking the company credit card elsewhere from now on. Sorry.

A HUGE Confederate flag hangs on the back of the wall. Only in the South. Management did not care about the concern. Food was o.k. but service was very good. Not recommended for negative atmosphere. Thanks!

I have been to OK Cafe many times and I have always found it to be an enjoyable experience. It is fun to sit at the counter to eat and watch the "runners" get the orders out. It gets crazy sometimes but it is fun to watch.

Ok Cafe has the best macaroni and cheese that I have ever had. Their pot roast and gravy is to die for. The service,quaility of food is always consistent. I have gone there for 20 years and I rave about it every time I leave. Love it!
