Already nationally known for its delicious Southern cuisine, the Blue Willow Inn of Social Circle is now accompanied by the Blue Willow Village which promises visitors an idyllic afternoon spent walking through an old-fashioned Victorian village.
Beloved for its fried green tomatoes, first made famous by Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist Lewis Grizzard, the Blue Willow Inn has become a regional tourist destination in recent years.
Serving a buffet-style lunch and dinner, seven days a week, popular menu items include the Inn’s fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, baked ham, collard greens, chicken and dumplings, a full salad bar, candied yams, peanut butter pie and cheese cake.
On Friday and Saturday nights the Inn features a Southern/Seafood buffet with a prime rib carving station, Alaskan snow crab, whole baked salmon, fried shrimp, fried scallops and barbecue ribs among other menu items.
Once you have feasted, be sure to take a stroll through the newly opened Blue Willow Village which features among other things a creationist and natural history museum with accompanying gift shop, a 1950s style soda fountain and diner and a Georgia Originals store where customers can peruse items handcrafted by Georgia artisans.
