Old Mill Country Kitchen in Opelika

Fresh coffee. A homemade breakfast. Fellowship. That’s only a taste of what you will find when Old Mill Country Kitchen in Opelika opens for business on Monday, March 20th.

About Old Mill Country Kitchen in Opelika

What was once the well-loved meat-and-three country cooking Sara J’s Restaurant and then Susie K’s is now under new ownership. No matter the name, the homey restaurant has stayed true to its roots—good, country cooking.

And soon, Old Mill Country Kitchen in Opelika will be carrying on that tradition while creating new ones in the renovated space. According to reports, new owners and friends, Shane Pope and Chuck Sumner, want to ensure the local spot’s loyal customers still have a place to meet and share a good meal.

They said it wasn’t unusual to visit the restaurant and find a Bible group or an old group of high school classmates dining and visiting. It’s their hope that Old Mill Country Kitchen, which pays homage to Opelika’s mill town history, remains a place people come to catch up and fill up on comfort food.

What to expect

We mentioned guests could expect much of the same style of food when they visit the future Old Mill Country Kitchen on Second Avenue. The menu will include Southern favorites such as chicken and dumplings, fried chicken, pork chops, vegetables and desserts.

Keep up with the upcoming restaurant and countdown the days until the March 20th opening by following them on Facebook.


You will find Old Mill Country Kitchen in Opelika at 1801 2nd Ave. Just off Opelika Road, the restaurant is less than a mile from East Alabama Medical Center.
