One of downtown Newnan’s first fine dining venues! We’ve been here multiple times and nothing disappoints. The best collard greens I’ve ever had, as well as the sweet potato au gratin. Pork chops were to die for, and their steaks are some of the very best around. Their signature cocktails are truly something to behold and worth every penny!
