Start with the fried pickles and when your meal comes ask for some of the sweet pickles. Salad dressing are homemade along with almost everything else. You can’t go wrong on anything you choose. Try to save room for dessert

We had lunch here, and was very pleased. The brisket was as good as it gets. The sauces only helped with the experience. Customer service was also good. Definitely would recommend

Needed to feed 30 people, last minute. They were able to put it all together within 90 minutes when I called at 10a. The food was great too. Brisket, chicken and sausage were divine!

This place has amazing fried pickles but they were out of cornmeal so no fried pickles, no corn bread and no catfish. They were out of turkey too and we were there by 11:15 am. Sad day we left and ate somewhere else

Clem's has delicious warm biscuits, served with cinnamon honey butter. Their ribs are large and meaty. Very little fat on them. Large restaurant that can handle groups/gatherings. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice plate of ribs with 2 sides costs about $10.00
