Meal was absolutely delicious. We shared three appetizers and three desserts. Each of us had our own entrees. The pimento cheese with bacon jam is fabulous, the peach pie and the lemon chess pie were superb. Our waiter was quite friendly albeit a tad forgetful. We loved sitting on the veranda and watching Saturday evening Athens life pass by.

We had dinner here one evening as we were passing through Athens. It was a throughly enjoyable meal. We started with Bruleed Figs- an unusual starter with grilled figs, whipped goat cheese, bacon, enoki mushrooms, fennel. It was light and delicious- the creamy goat cheese complemented the figs perfectly. For an entree we had Frogmore Stew- a classic low country... More

Sitting on the wide verandah, under ceiling fans, in the summer twilight--how much more southern can you get! We enjoyed squash fritters, watermelon sale and Tuesday Raman bowl ( my daughter), roasted peach salad and scallops (me), shared classic creme brûlée for dessert. The service was friendly and professional. A nice special occasion restaurant, for sure.

First, there was a mosquito in the dining room, and it bit me twice. But the food was really good, especially the seafood stew and the flounder. Excellent wine pairing as well. I recommend it highly even though it did not blow me away.

We went as a group of 10 people and their food and service was excellent. I had the Frogmore Stew and it was outstanding! Bob our waiter has been with them for 16 years. He provided excellent service and suggestions.

Enjoyed visiting Hugh Acheson'a acclaimed outpost in the Athens. The setting, in a home, is charming. We went for brunch. The chicken and biscuit with pimento cheese is excellent. So is the shrimp and grits.

Fantastic local and non-local food. Local food included interesting peach dishes and non-local included braised octopus - both of which were delicious. Local beers from Athens are also available and highly recommended. Service was great and I highly recommend eating on their huge porch (which has ceiling fans, if you're worried about the weather or mosquitos)

My husband and I were in town and celebrated my birthday dinner here. First, cocktails are amazing!! Bartender was very kind. We snacked on the boiled peanut hummus. I'm smitten! Dinner was great. I had the gnocchi and the flavor exploded in my mouth. You can tell the pasta is homemade and seasoned with care. My husband had the well... More
