Lloyd's is a great place to eat some home-cooking in a friendly atmosphere. Growing up, the older folks always wanted to go to Lloyd's to eat. I never really understood why. As I have grown older, I now know. Good food! Fair prices! Family feeling!

Consistently excellent fried catfish filet with best hush puppies in town! We have been eating at Lloyd's for almost 50 years and have rarely been disappointed.

My wife and I were passing through Birmingham recently and needed a place to eat. We get tired of eating the same food - we wanted to "break the chain" for lunch. Well, we saw that Lloyd's was packed at lunch time. We almost said,...More

Nothing fancy, just real southern hospitality and food. Lunchtime visit satisfied four of us without costing much.. Waitress couldn't do enough.
