Savor the flavors of Southern Appalachia artfully prepared by our renowned culinary team. Our menu is rooted in southern traditions and highlights locally grown, seasonal ingredients. Everything is made from scratch on site using fresh natural products.
You and your guests will feel at home as our culinary team prepares your meals and snacks in our semi-open kitchen. Our massive outdoor wood-burning smoker is sure to make you salivate as the delicious aromas of smoked meats, fish and vegetables permeate the air. Enjoy farm-to-fork food, presented buffet-style, either in the main house dining area or outside under our open-air pavilion. Our culinary team will personally guide you to create a spectacular dining experience for you and your guests.
Leading our innovative culinary team is proprietor Phil Rampy who brings deep passion for fresh and naturally nourishing food. An Alabama native with over 30 years in restaurant and catering, his deep southern roots and warm hospitality set the tone for a unique dining experience.
