Welcome to The Real Southern Hot Spot.
Our reputation for relaxing is well deserved, but we also like to get dressed up and hit the town every now and then. Mr. Friendly’s New Southern Café is a great spot for fresh takes on southern classics like fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits. Motor Supply is another excellent choice for a fancy, farm-to-table experience with a menu that changes daily, based on what’s available at the local market. If you’re near Main Street, Bourbon serves Cajun-inspired dishes and custom cocktails in a speakeasy atmosphere.
For a more casual outing, try Kiki’s Chicken and Waffles, self-proclaimed the “hands down best soul food in town.” You’ll be hard-pressed to disagree once you take a bite of their melt-in-your-mouth red velvet waffle. Doc’s Barbecue and Southern Buffet is another local favorite, with piping hot trays of mac and cheese, fried chicken, barbecue, and baked beans. Don’t miss their fried catfish nuggets—they’re delicious!
If you’re near the historic Robert Mills House downtown, you can walk to the Spotted Salamander for lunch. This local catering company opened their small café a few years ago, offering fresh, delicious southern food like pot roast po’boys, chicken and dumplings, and even a “deviled egg of the day.”
Bottom line is, we pride ourselves on our southern cooking and there’s an amazing restaurant on every corner around here. So order an ice-cold glass of sweet tea, kick back, and taste the good life.
