The scenic city of Swainsboro is so pretty that it was once almost named after Paris. Today, the city's most popular dining options are fresh and infused with Southern charm. Great food is served from establishments as varied as rustic lodges, downtown bistros and historic homes. The menus are diverse, though overwhelmingly American. Comfort food classics like fried green tomatoes, buttermilk chicken and stuffed flounder are found easily and prepared expertly. Locally sourced seafood is steamed, grilled, seared, baked or fried to your preference and portioned by the basket. There are also plenty of picturesque eateries where you can get a good old-fashioned steak.
