Most folks know the history of the Old Vinings Inn, from its days as a post office, as a general store and even as a filling-station. But we did not come for a history lesson, we went for its commitment to upscale Southern food.

Old Vinings Inn is a very quaint restaurant, and quiet enough for a nice date night. Plus if you have to wait, the waiting area (former living room) has a fireplace to keep you warm during these cold winter months.

As far as the food, we ordered the Charcuterie Plate, which was very good, especially their “lighter” pimento cheese and broad bean hummus. We also ordered the Trout and the Pork Chops. Despite the Trout being one of their staple items, I was underwhelmned. The Pork Chop, however, was fantastic, particularly with the shallot mustard sauce drizzled on top. Not being a huge Mac-and-Cheese guy, I subbed that in favor of brussel sprouts, which I was pleased by.

All in all, a fairly decent meal. Not the best, but certainly not the worst.

We were seated right away. Lauren, our server was very attentive and fun. The appetizers of calamari and fried green tomatoes were excellent. 2 ordered shrimp and grits, one salmon, one scallops, and 2 red snapper. All of us thought the food was great. I hope to go back and highly recommend this restaurant.

Great ambiance and an overall pleasurable dining experience. The service was outstanding. The only negative was that some of my shrimp, from the shrimp and grits, were under cooked and were raw. In the spirit of full disclosure, they had lost their chef shortly before we dined with them. My wife's meal and the rest of mine was very good.

Always enjoy this historic restaurant with its cozy rooms and romantic ambiance. The menu has Southern roots with a creative flair and executed as promised. The service is always consistent and friendly. We have to travel a bit but it never fails our expectations.
