Blue Willow Inn
Housed within a Greek Revival mansion in the small town of Social Circle, the Blue Willow Inn is a traditional Southern, buffet-style restaurant. The Blue Willow rose to fame after an exemplary review from columnist/humorist Lewis Grizzard and has regularly been lauded as one of the region's best Southern restaurants by publications like Travel+Leisure and Southern Living. The interior has a plantation feel, and the burgundy and green dining rooms feature antique tables and chairs, crystal chandeliers, and Blue Willow china place settings. The buffet features four to five meats, including the restaurant’s famous fried chicken, along with sides like collard greens, mashed potatoes, soups, and chicken and dumplings.
