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!

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

My dad had their fried oysters and couldn't stop saying how great they were. I got their homemade banana pudding and it was delicious.

We love to eat at Lloyd's. It's a quaint diner that serves southern food and the staff is very friendly. The coconut pie is delish! They have a variety of vegetables - my son loves the sweet candied yams. My husband likes the fried shrimp.
