The simple, Southern atmosphere of this restaurant is furthered by the fact that it is well off the beaten path. Yet the food within is well worth the trip. Once you enter, it just exhudes the feeling that you've stepped into some nice elderly woman's living room for some cornbread and buttermilk. Then, you're seated, and you can help yourself to some of the best country cooking in America. It's all simple dishes like cream corn, fried catfish, fried chicken, and even frog legs! The staff is friendly and helpful, and will refill your glasses with satisfying Coca-Cola, or some rather decent sweet tea. Whatever your choice, Red Minnow Lighthouse is not a restaurant to pass up when driving through Elberton, GA. Then again, how often is one just driving through Elberton?
- Order: The way this restaurant works is simple. You pay at the door, then come in and eat whatever they have out on the buffet. Now, the buffet is full of wonderfully prepared food that exemplifies all the best of Southern Cooking. They had catfish filets, cream corn, frog legs, fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, etc. The cream corn was by far the best I've ever had! It was cool, but still creamy and not clumped up or anything that is so common with creamed corn. My overall dining experience was unforgettable!
