Recently had an anniversary dinner at The Club. It was a Thursday evening. Not crowded. Was seated promptly . Was cheerfully created by our server Haley. She was very friendly and attentive. We split the large filet. We ordered it medium well. It was cooked perfectly/ Nice sear on the outside with just enough pink in the inside the maintain... More

All the food is good to excellent. Friendly and homey . You can not go wrong on any of their food. I have been eating there for more than 20 years. I have had my office Christmas party there in their party room. They also have an outdoor patio.

I had dinner here one night. The place seems like it is in an older building, as the floor in one area of the dining room floor was a bit uneven. The booth I sat in wasn't overly comfortable and the table needed cleaning. I had fried oysters as an appetizer. I specifically asked how many you get and the... More

I like the idea of a small town supper club. That is where the excitement ends. There is nothing about this restaurant that would EVER draw me again. The service was attentive. The food was an overall MEDIOCRE. Except for the "filet"....IT WAS GARBAGE. it was some substandard cuts of beef pieced together and wrapped with bacon. This crap pisses... More

Took my mother in law out for her birthday. We had a party of 10 people. We were sat at an 8 top table. Crowded in there because the staff didn't want to give us a bigger table. The service was terrible. The waitress didn't clean off our dirty dishes, didn't refill our drinks. I took a cake in for... More

Don't let the name "Possum Trot" push you away. They are a full service supper club with a private room for wedding receptions and a beautifully groomed area behind the restaurant staged elegalantly for wedding pictures. The wait staff is great. There is a Piano player in the bar. Very good food, atmosphere, and people!

We overall enjoyed our dinner here. We had the "filets" and they were actually pieces of the tail of the tenderloin that were cobbled together and wrapped with bacon to make the filet. Three pieces made the small filet and 4 made the larger one. See picture. They were well cooked on a charcoal grill they have in the dining... More

The main courses offered at Possum Trot are well done. The lightly breaded shrimp and steaks are well prepared. The problem is the lackluster salad and sides. The salad looks anemic & like it was dumped out of a bag. The sides have potential but are sometimes over cooked. If the Possum Trot would offer better quality on more than... More
