Restaurant Week – Day 1
October 1, 2014
About one mile from the interstate, nestled behind Red Lobster, Garfrerick’s Café and its modern but welcoming atmosphere, serve Scallops with fresh cream corn and sugar snap peas, Halibut with coconut Rice and Grilled Pineapple, Rainbow Trout with Lime Avocado Sauce, Shrimp and Grits and the favorite Pecan Encrusted Grouper. Known for their Sunday Vegetable Buffet, Garfrerick’s accommodates vegetarians and those needing gluten free. This year, Garfrerick’s features their Vegetable Plate and Sweet Potato Brownie for Restaurant Week, just $10 at lunch including a drink.
Known for their coffee and coconut cake, Java Jolt serves breakfast, lunch and dinner on the square in Jacksonville. Their Cocky Chicken Salad, with dill, is mouthwatering, especially on a croissant. For Restaurant Week, they’re serving it with their House made Blueberry Vinaigrette and a dessert. If you catch the Apple Pie Cookies or Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies, you’re in for a treat. They also have a great s’mores pie. This picturesque spot on the square in Jacksonville is a great place to study or chill. *Their Cappuccino Chocolate Muffin and Cinnamon Scones pair perfectly with a morning cup of Joe.
Their Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Chicken Salad, and Honey Mustard Vinaigrette are great choices at Cheaha; however, their smoked chicken paired with mac and cheese and green beans is scrumptious! Many people comment on how their mac and cheese is a delicious homemade treat, and their smoked chicken is packed with Smokey flavor and coated in a flavorful rub. This relaxed atmosphere, with high ceilings, local art and frequent live music, is welcoming and unique. The local brews like the Pinhoti, Old Reliable or Noble Street Wheat, pair perfectly with the dishes served. It’s always a treat to stop at Cheaha, on Walnut Avenue in Anniston.
