Stopped by the Oil Lamp with a group while visiting in Perry. All the meals were just like home cooking. Meat loaf, catfish chicken and roast beef are all excellent. Vegetables, deserts and salad bar are all very nice.,

My daughters and I ate here and it was wonderful! I had roast, mac and cheese, Lima beans and cornbread! Both of my girls had veggie plates. They loved theirs too! The pies are great too! It was crowded but the line moved fast!
