Lynne & Jerald like to share their favorite places. They cover so many counties, we asked them to send us items in their weekly travels to post to the site and share with you, so you get a local’s perspective on what’s delicious, fun, and interesting in our region. First up? One of Jerald and Lynne’s favorite restaurants: George’s Lowcountry Table, Athens

Local Recommendation: George’s Lowcountry Table, Athens, GA

Welcome to George’s Lowcountry Table in Athens, GA. Their Sunday Brunch is fantastic! George’s has a great variation on Eggs Benedict they call Cakes and Eggs, made with awesome lump crab cakes, poached eggs & Hollandaise sauce over drop biscuits!  YUM!  Not to mention their absolutely wonderful southern favorite: Fried Green Tomatoes.

Why George’s?

When Jerald helped a client buy her first home, he would meet her in the parking lot during the home search process. He mentioned George’s might be an interesting place to try. So, as a thank you, she gave him a gift certificate to the restaurant, and Jerald loved it. He and Lynne have been regulars ever since.

By the way – who is George?

Per Reggie, current owner: “George Davis founded Gus Garcia’s and Harry Bissett’s in the 1980s. I went to work for George in 1995 at Gus Garcia’s. Soon after, I was promoted to the chef at Bissett’s. In the years to follow, George taught me many things about the restaurant business. Among them, the importance of good food, good wine, and good service. The Lowcountry Table is our way of remembering George. So here’s to George!”

The Menu – Highlights:

In addition to a spectacular brunch menu, you can enjoy southern-inspired classics like Seafood Jambalaya, Classic Crawfish Étoufée, and Country Fried Chicken. George’s also hosts Scotch Dinners, boasts an extensive wine selection and tastings, offers unique cocktail creations (Lowcountry Lemonade, anyone?), and will cater your events as well.
