Southern / Soul Food Restaurant
$$$
“Antebellum has been rated the #1 restaurant in Georgia on several occasions. The food and cocktails are incredible. Antebellum Restaurant is a fine dining establishment located in the Historic District of Flowery branch. Set in a quaint, 1890s style home, the restaurant is the perfect hub for this Southern theme. Complete with a charming wrap-around porch and candlelit by lanterns, the restaurant ambiance lends itself to an elegant dining experience. The cozy, off the beaten path location merits a drive. The restaurant serves a seasonal menu, complete with ingredients from local farms and traditional dishes with a twist. Come experience Antebellum, where flavorful dishes, exemplary service and southern hospitality are in abundance.”

“The food is REALLY GOOD! But is smells like smoke inside, going by water is dangereous because their dock is HORRIABLE and it can get crowded. Somtimes they have a band outside on a nice night, it may be worth the trip.”
