They need more room in between tables hard for hadicaped

It is real loud inside not a great atmosphere the tables are to close together very crowded the food made up for it though



A hometown favorite!

My family loves this place. Although crowded at times, they never fail to please. Delicious catfish fillet dinner, chicken fried steak to die for, heaping plates,( the grilled chicken salad is HUGE!), super friendly wait-staff, great sweet-Tea. They have family pictures up around the restaurant, antiques in the window-sills, and my kid's favorite, a jukebox. Definitely a family atmosphere.

good home cooked fooe

Everything you order at the Ole Jody's is very good. Good old fashion hamburger, good fresh breaded onion rings, fried tomatoes. Fresh cut and hand battered chicken fried steak. The grilled fish is very good. The service is very fast and very friendly servers.
