My first experience with Beef O Brady's. Loved the fries and the burger was good too.

We came here because all the other restaurants closed at 9:00 p.m. We got drinks and chicken nachos. So, so good! Our waitress, Emily, was fantastic and owner, Yvonne, was so helpful in helping us plan our weekend in Thomasville. This is the best Beef’s I’ve ever ate at!

Always a good atmosphere and food. We missed out best server tho Kenzie!!! Always running and service with a smile and always eager to help! Keep up the good work Kenzie, good help is hard to find!!!!! And good service isnt easy for customers to find either!

Had to wait a while to have our order taken. Too few servers working. Had to go to the bar to get our bill so we could pay and leave. Very unusual to have poor service here. Hopefully it was just a fluke.

We had blackened fish. It was pretty good, a little salty to me. The season was in the rice also. My sister in law loved it, though. The service was great.

If I could give this place a 0 review, I would, I spent 37 dollars. I wanted some bbq. I look at reviews, and alot of the restaurants in Thomasville seem to have negative reviews. This seemed to have the best reviews out of all the bbq spots, that I looked at so I chose fallins bbq. Worst decision. The burnt ends were mostly fat, no taste. In addition to being tasteless, the Mac and cheese was pale in color with no cheese as you can see. the ribs were literally the worst ribs I’ve ever eaten in my life, they were fatty and tasted undone..the Texas toast was just burnt toast. I’m from miami and I always hear about Georgia bbq. Fallins bbq does not represent what I’ve heard Georgia bbq is, I get ten times better bbq in miami. The Brunswick stew was watery but had a slightly ok taste, the collard greens were tasteless. I didn’t even bother to go back because obviously this is the kind of food they put out. I should’ve followed my first mind and went to longhorn which was closer to our hotel. At least for the most part I know what I’ll probably get there besides the longhorn here having questionable reviews also. The worst bbq I’ve ever had in my life. I’d never come back here.

Passing through from Alabama and got delivered by DoorDash. Absolutely sad we may never be in the area again to eat here again!! So good! Mac n cheese was awesome, pork dinner awesome, burn ends platter a tad dry but still delicious!! Fried mushrooms were a bit too salty but I like them that way anyways. Would eat here every week if we were local!!

Food is amazing. Service is great. The building is dated. My only negative is that no matter what table I sit at, it is crazy sticky? It appears clean just sticky? Definitely recommend the food. Try the banana pudding.

Our waiter was friendly but time he started to take our order he had to start telling us he had to go to bathroom bad and he went to bathroom. Then came back and had to explain when you pass 40 when you had to go you had to go. Came back with wet hands and grabbed a dish towel and dried them. Do not know how good he washed them as he had turned my stomach. Did not really enjoy my food. Some of us humans have a weak stomach. I just think if he had to go that bad should have gone before he started taking orders and kept his mouth shut and just told us he would be back in a few to take our order. Then he forgot to bring my husband's banana pudding then slapped some in a very small bowl to take with us. Bananas are very dark. Do not know if I will go back or not. He could have had on cleaner looking cloths. Woman waitress waiting on other tables looked very clean.

Great food, friendly service! They're usually pretty busy, but still a good choice for a quick sit-down lunch...You'll be fed, happy, and on your way in no time! My only complaint is the mac n' cheese had barely any flavor on this trip, but it's been pretty good in the past. I guess it's hit or miss. The Brunswick stew was excellent. 👍

A New American menu with European touches is served at this relaxed eatery with warm, rustic decor.
Without any bias...my meal this afternoon (birthday) was probably one of the most delicious meals I've eaten in years! I'm thankful for the Foster family and to watch CHEF Tyler grow into who (in my opinion) may be the next greatest chef in the states! Hat's off to Liam's...well done, friends...p

We don't get to Thomasville often, but when we do, Liam's is a must-stop place for us. I've never met anyone who knows as much about cheese as Rhonda. By far the best cheese and meat plate we've had and trust me, we've had a lot! Carol took good care of us this time, and I was interested to hear her approach to cheese. The staff is excellent! (Apologies for not taking a photo of the charcuterie board). They pickle their own vegetables, too, and that makes a difference. Our drinks were excellent. The bartenders are extremely talented and didn't mind my constant questions. It's nice to sit at the bar and watch them craft beautiful and tasty drinks. We look forward to our next visit!

My husband and I were so happy to find this restaurant. It's a cozy little spot to sit and enjoy a delicious meal and creative cocktails. My husband had the duck leg and I had the gnocchi and both dishes were exquisite. So flavorful with generous portions. This will be a go-to destination for our date nights!!
5 / 5
Liam's has been one of our favorites for the past decade, but I'm only getting around to leaving a review now. But because of knowing them over such a long time, I can admire and compliment the consistency of their presentation - the decor and ambience have stayed the same, even through expanding into the space next door with a bar and lounge; the creativity of the drinks menu still impressive; the cheese selection and thoughtfulness astonishing; and the menu itself is genuine, personal, and of an exceptional quality.

Liams is an incredible one of kind experience! From the handcrafted cocktails made by the crafty bartenders to the absolute dishes of art that head chef tyler creates, you can not go wrong hitting this spot!! The atmosphere is awesome as well!

Straightforward seafood spot with a bottled beer list, combination platters & an in-house market.
I would eat here regularly if I lived closer. Lovely indoor/outdoor atmosphere. Friendly service, excellent food! The gyro had perfectly warmed bread, a lightly flavored tzatziki sauce, and tender sliced lamb meat. Baklava was okay--I prefer a lighter, flakier version. My companion had the Po Boy and said it was better than any they'd had in New Orleans, so definitely trying it next time!

We were looking to get out of town for the day and found this seafood restaurant on Google. It was slightly awkward walking in and not seeing any other minorities. Normally, I would've left for a more diverse restaurant but staff were so friendly. They made sure we felt comfortable, they kept checking on our needs, and they even greeted us on the way out. We were also worried that the food would taste bland but it was perfectly seasoned. They ran out of grouper but the staff was nice enough to suggest a different fish and give 1 extra. I would eat here again and I definitely recommend it for everyone else.

No frills seafood joint. Nice selections, staff was very friendly. Food was decent. Had the grilled Grouper sandwich with hush puppies and grits. I also had a feature of seared Mahi and Shrimp. Both were good and very simple. Prices were reasonable.

Adorable and delicious restaurant close to downtown! The food is amazing, the atmosphere is quaint, and the staff are quite friendly. The deviled crab, hush puppies, and Greek salad were especially great. The owner even stopped by our table to introduce himself, he was incredibly hospitable.
5 / 5
We love this place! The Greek salad is simply amazing. The fried green tomatoes are to die for and the gyros are simply the best. I believe the girls name is Kelsey, but she provides phenomenal service! And the owner is the sweetest! Because of the awesome service and food, we will always return. ❤️

Bright, colorful pizzeria featuring specialty pies, lunch slices, calzones, salads & draft brews.
Gave 4 stars instead of 3 because the service was so great. I was greeted the moment I got in the door. The gentleman (Jason) was friendly and fast, made me feel like we were old friends. The pizza however was lackluster. Slightly undercooked crust and the toppings weren't very even. I think with maybe a bit longer in the oven it would have been pretty good. The sourdough starter dough tasted really good even though it could have been cooked more.
4 / 5
Decent food. Service was less than perfect. We were a party of 8 but we had to ask for our salads and our food came out before the salad. The cheese sticks are great the first order was better than the second. Next time I'm getting to be Alfredo with no chicken. All in all I'd go again.

Let me start by saying Lexi and Dena were great servers! My husband enjoyed the hunter’s pizza and the Caesar salad and breadsticks were great but the Angel hair pasta was over cooked. I tried it with the basil sauce and meatballs, but it was very spicy and I didn’t realize the meatballs were pork and beef mixture. They allowed me to trade it for angel hair pasta with butter and Parmesan but the pasta was still overcooked. They were nice enough to take the pasta off of our ticket. But told me that nobody else had said anything and they’ve been selling it all night.

We have not been to Moonspin in months. Today’s visit was disappointing as it is not the place we were accustomed to. Outdoor appearances are less than attractive with silk flowers galore and dead trees in pots. The tap handles are neat but the location and expectation to not touch or allow children at those tables is a bit much. The food was mediocre at best. They are using the same menu that’s been used for years but not executing the dishes or using fresh quality ingredients. Too bad. Service started out good with three different people taking care of us but went downhill to the point we had to ask for more tea. Not sure we’ll be as excited to make the 45 minute drive to have a meal there. I’m giving a 3 plus.

We had great food and great service in this lovely restaurant. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was incredible. The portions were generous. I actually ate my pasta dish as leftovers for two more meals.

This popular locale offers Southern specialties in a casual, lofty space with outdoor seating.
Love this place you decided to eat outside as it was less crowded and it was not too hot. Turned out to be a good choice as we had a little fan that blew a breeze and we actually got to speak with some folks coming by walking up the walkway it was very enjoyable time. I had their classic shrimp and grits which was excellent and my wife had The cyclone shrimp which was very good also. Classic hush puppies for starters and we finished with peanut butter pie which was so very good. I look forward to the next time I'm in Thomasville so we can stop in and eat here again.

Jonah's may not be the only shrimp and grits place on the planet, and you've seen most things on the menu before. But you will never have every single thing cooked as perfectly as this. We thought that after our first visit two years ago, when we found Jonah's by mistake, and it was still true on this trip when we drove 4 hours out of our way like heat seeking missiles to get here. We had shrimp fried exactly right (not overdone, great batter); heavenly white cheddar grits (possibly cooked with milk or cream instead of water); salmon with a gingersnap crust with their "signature butter" (maybe the lemon butter. No idea. Fab); incredibly generous corn and crab chowder with a dollop of sherry; fried green tomatoes w/sun dried tomatoes, feta and balsamic glaze; and finally their floaty hushpuppies that should make all others just hang up their skillets. Worth seguing right over to (charming) Thomasville, Ga, if you're within 300 miles.

Literally the best meal I’ve had in years. We stopped there on our way to our honeymoon bc it was recommended by a family member. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. There was a bit of a wait but it was worth every second of waiting. Not only does the restaurant have a nice story but it was AMAZING food. I hope we can venture down again one day to eat it again!

Why was this food so delicious! Enjoyed every minute of this lunch with my son. The drive is about a 25-30 minute drive time but well worth it! Just note it does get busy very quickly so plan accordingly! However this the first in a long time the customer service was excellent and food was delicious.

Yesterday was my first time visiting this restaurant and there was almost an hour wait…and I’m not surprised, the food here was absolutely incredible! My wife had the bourbon glazed salmon and she said it was the best salmon she ever had. I had the “Classic” Shrimp and Grits and it was delicious. We are already planning our second trip to this establishment and if there is a two hour wait, so be it!

Great place to eat! Oysters 3 ways, delicious. Smoked whitefish starter was incredible. Had the Mahi and grilled Caesar also. Both were delicious! Our server was attentive at times and lost at other times. Menu selection was decent. Loved the decor

This was a girl's trip to try a new local place. It was for us, and we tried a little of everything. For the most part, the food was delicious. We had reservations at 5, and the restaurant opened promptly at 5. We were seated, and drink orders were taken. Our server was John. I ordered a martini; Cherry Lavender. One of the other ladies ordered a Prickly Pear Magarita. They were both tasty! For appetizers, we had duck tacos (they were a little on the dry side), Rockefeller Oysters, Fried Oysters, and Onion Rings. All of which were appetizing!! For our main entrée there was trout over a bed of rice (which was the special of the day). Two people ordered the Chop Burger, and they were disappointed steak fries as advertised was not served with the burger. I ordered the dry aged ribeye. The first one came out overcooked, but the manager Ryan made sure I was happy and had another one prepared for me, which was absolutely AMAZING! It was served with "corn cake" and creamed corn. The corn cake was delicious. Made me crave more. I was the only one who ordered a dessert. I had the pecan pie with a scoop of vanilla I've cream. The pie had a nice flavor, but not enough filling and too many pecans( and I love pecans). I gave the atmosphere a 3 because the building had an old smell to it and the tables were a little sticky and small. I will be back to try the Chop Burger. Give this place a try. Hidden gem with nice service. Reservations are required. Bon Appétit!

Our first time eating at Chop House. My wife and I were extremely impressed with the food and the service was top notch. Can't wait to go again!

Thank you for your excellent service and delicious dinner. We had started with your smoked fish dip, moved on to the Ribeye and NY Strip, and ended with Bread Pudding. What a wonderful way to spend our 5 year anniversary. :)

Loved the atmosphere, service and the incredible food! Beautiful day outside, live jazz music on the streets and the brick road reminded me of home as we sat down to eat. I had some of the best scallops I've ever had here and also tried a great piece of sirloin. I definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting an exceptional meal with a touch of nostalgia if you grew up in a small town.
