Ahna, our waitress was great. We had six people in our group and she was welcoming, professional and knowledgeable about the menu. I do think the kitchen needs to pare down the menu selections and focus on doing fewer entrees, and doing them better. They have burgers, pub food, sushi and complicated entrees. It's hard to figure out what kind... More

Can't wait to go back. The food was so good! Husband ordered the Bison burger and said it was good but smaller than he would have liked. Loved the variety of the menu. I ordered sushi as well as the cheese platter. I ate it so fast I forgot to take a photo for this review. Staff was great too.... More

We were not familiar with the area and but had heard "Plates" was good but could be pricey. We found it to be good and even better, not terribly pricey. I was looking for "southern comfort" and my spouse wanted breakfast...we happily found both. The grits were excellent as was the fried green tomatoes. The fried chicken with country gravy... More

We stopped by for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. They weren't too crowded, as we got there around 1. There were were 6 of us and we were seated quickly. Our waitress was personable, and she was very helpful. We had the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer, and they were good. Two of us had the guacamole grilled cheese... More

Time for a night out!? You should try Plates. It was our fist time. The food was great. The service... they were very busy, yet they were still very attentive. The atmosphere was welcoming, and we enjoyed our time together.

We were on our way home from Nashville and stopped in Carrollton for the night. The front desk clerk at the hotel suggested Plates on the Square. Weather was beautiful so we chose a table outside. The food was very good and served promply. The Charleston grits are the best grits I've ever eaten. Our server was Silvia and she... More

We had the best waitress. I enjoyed the crab stuffed flounder and was able to swap sides. Everything was great!

Jenn was an excellent server. She listened and made great suggestions. The serving size was perfect for lunch. The soup was yummy. Peanut butter pie was divine.

We keep giving Plates a shot and keep getting mediocre food from the specials but excellent food from the standbys. It's sad to see how this restaurant has gone downhill recently and am rooting for them to get things together again. Most evenings, they run out of the specials almost immediately, and the specials are rarely something recognizable or appetizing.... More

Wow just Wow!!!! The waitress was very nice and so was the Manager. My husband didn't like all his tuna, so they gave him half off the price. They gave us a military discount. Parking is not the greatest. Burgers are the Bomb!!!
