The pork chop was delicious and generous and the filet was perfectly seasoned and cooked. This is a nice date restaurant although it is very small and open so... More

Service was quick and our server really knew the menu and preparation. The beer battered asparagus was perfect, the pork belly was beautifully cooked but could use a little acid to... More

This is a very nice restaurant converted from an old pharmacy. It has white tablecloths on each of the tables and the atmosphere is very elegant. The service at Café 123 is really excellent and the waiters are knowledgeable and do not mind sharing their opinions of menu items. The menu is somewhat limited but there is a good assortment...

I went here with 3 others and from the fish special to the steaks, everyone really enjoyed their meal. You can't go wrong eating here and think it is the best place in downtown Opelika for a nice dinner with good friends and family.
