My family and I enjoyed our meals. The waitress was very friendly and provided outstanding service. I enjoyed looking at all of the art on the walls. Whomever the artist is/was, job well done! I had the beef tips with rice, green beans and carrots....More

Yall! This place is delicious! Even something as simple as a breakfast sandwich explodes your tastebuds! The chocolate pie is my favorite, and even though I know they're known for their pies, I would go to this place just for the food itself. Definitely a...More

A friend had recommended this place. I had the strawberry. Hubby had chocolate. Scrumptious. A great treat to the end of our day.

Strawns is everything you could want in a diner. The food & service is excellent with a classic diner menu that's not complicated. Do not leave without a slice of their infamous strawberry pie.

I'm sorry you do not like our hash browns. They are the Greek style we've served for over 70 years, but we understand they are not for everyone.

We have given out the recipe before to Southern Living, but the secret to our recipe is the people who make them. They've been making them the same from scratch, daily; a tradition passed down for 80 years.

Yes they serve that daily. They have their meal special of the day but you can order anything they have on their menu. It's just good down home cooking. All their pies are delicious.

Strawns Eat Shop specializes in Southern Food, and is best know for their famous ice box pies. We have breakfast all day, including fluffy pancakes and "Football" omlettes. For lunch and dinner try a hamburger, chicken fried steak or a blue plate special. Our famous Ice Box Pies have been featured in Southern Living and on The Food Network. Most of our employees have been here for decades! We are the truly one of the last remaining "mom and pop" run restaurants around! Think Norman Rockwell America!! Stop by and eat with the locals because everyone is family at Strawn's!
