The Oil Lamp Restaurant is a cafeteria serving country cooking. It has been in Perry since 1996, but moved to a new location and was decorated with a tractor theme in the summer of 2009. New hours were added as well, so evening meals are now an option. It is as a good place for family dining and is an easy stop off I-75. The Oil Lamp is also close to the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter.

There are usually at least four entrees that may include shredded roast beef, fried chicken, meat loaf, shredded ham, turkey, or fried fish. At the start of the cafeteria line, a salad bar is an menu option. Desserts include a variety of homemade pies and sometimes cake.

The Oil Lamp owner Judy Wenger was raised as a Mennonite as a child, so her cooking style reflects this upbringing. But this is not an Amish Mennonite restaurant.
