    If you like sandwiches, salads, or soup this is a place to go. We shared a burger and the crab sandwich. The burger was better. The fries were tasty. They have sports games on while you eat.

    Friendly staff and service. I had the hash off the bunch menu which was delicious with their corned beef. My wife had catfish and grits. Fish was perfectly fried and the grits were top notch. One of the best Bloody Marys in town (and I’ve had many!) Good parking and a nice bar area. This has the feel of a nice little neighborhood bar and grill. Definitely will be back

    The food here is always delicious and our visit last night was no exception. The four of us all ordered different things, and we all loved every bite! Service was a little slower than normal, but the restaurant was also more crowded than at other times. While I enjoy many things on the menu, the BLT with sweet potato fries or Mac and cheese is still the best IMO.

    Everything was great except for the noise level. It was difficult to carry on a conversation with those across the table. It may have been just that particular day because there were several large groups in the front of the dining area.

    Two words: okra fries. These are a must have at Rutledge Cab Co. One of the other people who I dined with eats a ton of BLTs. She said that Rutledge's BLT is the best she's ever had. My husband said the same about the ruben. I had the pork & it was terriffic too! Great dining experience from top to bottom.
