The building is a bit off the beaten path, but the food and wine were excellent. We had a goat cheese called Rowdy Gentleman, great Shrimp and Grits (menu calls them 'life changing') and wonderful salmon. Would recommend this place. Would certainly go back.

What a surprise to discover destination dining, hidden away in the mists of Sewanee Mountain. The inventive, chef-driven menu features local farmers, foragers, and organics. BYOB. Seating from 5 to 9 PM on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
