    Doesn't look like much from outside, but inside you will find wood paneling, a roaring fireplace, and finely dressed wait staff. Known for their generous portions, wide variety of cuts, and surf'n'turf options, this is the place to go if you simply must have an 18 oz. ribeye.
  • The Blarney Stone Public House

    715 Caroline St
    The bright green color scheme overplays the "Irish" theme a bit, but it is actually owned and operated by a local Irish family. If the front dining room is empty, check the back bar room where the real action is. Plenty of Irish beer on tap, pairs well with the fish and chips, shepherd's pie, or corned beef and cabbage. Acoustic musicians are regularly featured in the back.

  • Allman's Bar-B-Que

    1299 Jefferson Davis Hwy
    Funky old barbecue house right off of US Route 1. Unpretentious, authentic interior down to the hand painted menu on the wall and cutaways to the kitchen. Aside from the obvious menu selection, their onion rings and hamburgers are a nice, greasy treat.
  • KC's Music Alley
