Great band playing and the food is really good! The sweet potato fries are very yummy and the shrimp and grits are splendid! The walk is not far from Downtown Athens!

Very cool old metal Foundry that is now a bar/restaurant/live music venue. Anything involving the grits is great and the Mac & cheese is killer. Respectable selection of craft brews on tap. Try anything by SBC and the Tropicalia from Creature Comforts is a great...More
