“No longer in Business”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

I'm sorry to report that this restaurant has closed after many years in service. Whitesburg has lost a great restaurant and great atmosphere for small town dining. This was my favorite place to eat or even just stop in and order iced tea or coffee and do some computer work. Even though I have the recipes to their best dishes, I'm sure they won't taste the same. Good job Courthouse Cafe! You are already missed!

“Courthouse cafe.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Food was delicious...although out of lobster tail unfortunately. Service was very slow, but a busy night. Would recommend just for the food and environment.

“Great little corner restaurant with rustic appeal!”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Im local to the area, and this is one of my absolute most favorite places to eat. I enjoy the quietness of the restaurant, the decor with local artists paintings, quilts, etc. My favorite dish is served on Wednesdays, Hot Turkey Salad, which in fact is NOT a salad, but a type of casserole. Soft music plays in the background, you can watch the local traffic drive by from the window. The creak of the wood floors just connects you to life from an earlier time. The menu is not expansive, but what they do serve is delicious. The coffee is great, Tanglewood pie is my favorite dessert. Alcohol is available here. Recommend highly to those looking for something out of the ordinary and not of the fast food theme. They are closed on Sundays, and nightly at 8pm. So go early evening if choosing dinner.

“Special Catfish”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

I stopped in on a recent visit to Whitesburg, after being suggested by a friend at WMMT radio. I had the catfish sandwich, one of the specials of the day. Although fried, it was quite light with a great tasting, light coating. The cole slaw was also delicious, with a nice amount of carrot grated in, making for an interesting taste and a lovely presentation.
