Monday-Saturday: Lunch and Dinner
Olde Tyme is a beloved mecca for poboys, from the half-shrimp, half-oyster seafood sandwich to fresh salads. If seafood isn't your thing, try the Olde Tyme Special poboy - it's ham, turkey, roast beef and swiss cheese on soft French bread with mayo, lettuce and tomato. Grab a bag of Zapp's and an ice cold soda and have a seat in the courtyard. Don't forget your checkbook or some cash since this icon doesn't accept plastic payment.
