Living in Russellville we often drop in for breakfast here. Food is always tasty and service is friendly. Sometime it can be very busy but who wants to eat at a place that nobody else is frequenting. We have found the prices reasonable and the atmosphere very nostalgic. Makes me think back to the days when my Dad and I... More

Any thing that is on the menu is great! On the weekends they have specials on prime rib and fish. The chicken fried steak is the best that I have ever had.

My wife and I had lunch at The Old South Restaurant while in Russellville and were pleased with our meal. We both had the turkey and dresssing, which was very good. The green beans were exceptional, they had bits of bacon and onion cooked in them. Service was fast and friendly and prices were reasonable.

Listed on the historic register, a great place to eat with awesome sweet tea! The fried bologna sandwich is always good and their house dressing is worth the trip!

I overnight in Russellville often and have breakfast here. My experience at this restaurant was out of this world. I was seated instantly. The coffee was very good. The waitress was friendly and capable. I was warned that my order might take 20 minutes because the place was full. It took only 10 minutes. The food was impeccable. My coffee... More

Was recommended by a friend. Showed up about 10am on a Saturday and the parking lot was full. We entered and was greeted by an older gentleman that I assume was the owner. He spoke to us like he knew us and welcomed us right in to a restaurant full of locals. Opened the menu to find most of the... More

Old South is a favorite go to to a lot of locals. Home made entrees and desserts. Best salad dressing around.
