Love to eat here on Sundays after the early service. Great food and wait staff. Easy in and out at 11AM.

The best luncheon menu yet. Moist baked chicken, fragrant rice and a Greek style Ratatouille with a light salad with a home-made vinaigrette.

Have a meal here and you will know why they have been in business for so many years.

Came during karaoke and staff was amazing! Server gave great recommendations on drinks and even helped find a ride for a friend who had drunk too much. If you are looking for a place that has karaoke and good drinks, The Plaza is an amazing option!

Oysters, Oysters, Oysters along with Great Service and Delicious Food.

Excellent lunch buffet with classic Greek specials and southern country food. Private rooms for parties of any size to dine in.

My Mother & I had the BEST supper at The Plaza, 02/21/18. She had the eggplant Parmesan, I had the lasagna. We followed up with vanilla cream brûlée & chocolate pie. Everything was FABULOUS from start to finish. My favorite was the chocolate pie. Finally someone is making a truly homemade pie, not just pudding. Service was 5* too.

My sister-in-law and I spent a day in Thomasville. We had a great time capped off with an afternoon snack and a couple of Cosmos sitting outside at the Plaza. The food and drinks were perfect. And the entire staff couldn’t have been nicer or friendlier! Thank you Plaza Restaurant. We look forward to our next visit!

Happened upon this historic jewel on the way to Savannah. It was obviously a local’s hangout and I can tell why... eating from the lunch buffet is like eating from your grandmother's tables. Homemade fried chicken, greens, real baked macaroni and cheese and butter peas amongst a lot of other selections. We even bought two of the crested water glasses as souvenirs. I highly recommend a stop at this classic southern restaurant. If you like homemade southern fare, you won't be disappointed.
