Our Story

The Plaza Restaurant & Oyster Bar

The oldest restaurant in the state of Georgia

Established in 1916, The Plaza has been the restaurant southwest Georgians have come to for fabulous meals, celebrating special occasions, breaking bread with elected officials, or just to enjoy the company of family and loved ones.
When The Plaza opened it was located at 115 North Broad Street and could seat only 26 patrons at its white marble tables, but through the years the restaurant has grown with Thomasville. Now located at the corner of Broad and Smith, The Plaza offers formal and casual dining plus a cocktail lounge and outdoor seating.

The Plaza has had a variety of owners, most of who were of Greek heritage. In 2007 a new era began when it was purchased by Michael Regina. A restauranteur and chef. Born in Manhattan, Michael has owned and operated restaurants in the 80’s and 90’s in New York. Since coming to Thomasville it has been his mission to make The Plaza an even better.
