"Southern Charm" Restaurant, Blue Ridge, Georgia
During our recent visit to Blue Ridge, Georgia we ate at
one of our favorite restaurants, Christy Lee’s Court Yard Grille. I can’t say a thing bad about that restaurant
except I wish it was in my backyard!
We almost went back to Christy Lee’s our last night of
vacation, but I decided to try to find something new, something different, a
place we had not tried before. I have no
clue why my restaurant searches didn’t pick up Southern Charm until that
day. My husband and I both wish I had
found it sooner!
I was also curious as to why I hadn’t heard of Southern
Charm during our previous visits to the area.
That’s easy, it didn’t open until 2013 and the last time we were there
This place is loaded with "Southern Charm"
I saw the photo of the restaurant on their website, and
thought how adorable it was! Just my
kind of place so I read the menu and was happy to find out their menu held
several items that I would like. My
husband is easy; I knew he would get a burger if nothing else caught his eye or
his taste buds!
Off we went to find this new taste treat…
Once seated we were hand menus and we ordered our
drinks. I usually avoid sweet tea at a
restaurant as I have never had a really good glass of it out. I had read some reviews and knew I would be
happy with it at this restaurant – and I was.
It was served in a mason jar and it was the absolute best sweet tea
I love a good pot pie and guess what they had on the menu
– Grandma’s Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie! It
isn’t your typical pot pie with a bottom and top crust. It was more like a bowl of pot pie filling
with two southern biscuits in the bowl also.
It was the perfect item for me to order and I couldn’t have been
happier. I choose a baked sweet potato
(served with butter and brown sugar on the side) and steamed broccoli as my two
Grandma's Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie
My husband did order a Burger and Cole Slaw. He declared
it was a better burger than he has had at several restaurants recently. See, I knew that’s what he would get!
Great burger says my husband!
Let me back-track a little, while waiting for our dinners
they served two Southern Biscuits with a small dish of the best apple butter
(warm) that I’ve ever tasted. I should
have bought some to bring home….darn!
The atmosphere was great, the service was fast, the
prices were reasonable and the food was excellent. If you plan a trip to Blue Ridge, Georgia
make sure you check out Southern Charm’s website and read their menu and their
specials. I know you will find something
you like and once you visit you will want to make a return trip.
PS: We ordered a
slice of Grandma’s Coconut Cake to-go.
It certainly was a southern charmer of a cake…be sure to ask about it.
