Shaderette and I get the House Zalad most often at Zaxby's - fried fingers for me please, grilled for Shaderette. The kids usually get either the Zax Snak or the Chicken Finger plate.

The Zax Sauce completes the chicken fingers. Fries are crinkle-cut steak fries with seasoning shaken over them.

It's not noisy in there usually, and tables are spaced wide enough that it's not difficult to make your way to an open table or booth.

I love the salads at Zaxby's. They are as good as you can get anywhere. I had one last night.

I love the fried chicken salad at Zaxbys!!! Very Delish!

Lately for lunch, we've been going to the Sawmill, and dang it's good! Their country fried steak is the best i've had in a LONG time, and that is something that i don't usually order because you never know if it will be tough, etc. But it's GOOOODDD!! Their burgers are awesome too. I'm getting awfully hungry and it's 10pm!! We need to quit this food discussion so late, LOL!!

Well, we made the 30 minute drive to Brothers in Murphy last night. We got there and had to wait for 15 minutes to get in. Once we sat down, we knew we made a mistake, it was not the kind of restaurant we like to eat at.
If you enjoy the noise of a school cafeteria (or the cookie jar) you will like this place.
I had called in advance to see if we could have mixed drinks, plus I asked in the lobby and was told both times, that we could.
We decided to make the best of it, so we asked for two glasses and a pitcher of ice and told the girl we were going to have cocktails first.
She came back with glasses only and told me she would have to pour the drinks in the kitchen, that it was against the law for us to pour at our table.
Well, we never have any problem with that at Shoebooties or Monets and i am not letting anyone "pour" my drink in the kitchen, so we thanked her and left.
Came back to Monets and had a nice QUIET Peaceful meal. We told Joan about our experience. Guess there is no place like "home"

That's a bummer to drive all that way and find out it's not the place for you. Are there any restaurants in Blue Ridge that you might enjoy? The drive wouldn't be any longer than the one you took last night.
(By the way, thanks for the comment about the noise. We like dinner in quiet places too.)

Maddy,

Wow. That's some news about Fieldstone! I've been wondering what would happen, since the owner died last spring.

I love the Fieldstone and it's practically in my back yard (I could walk to it along the lake from my house), however, it's beginning to need upkeep. It was built in the 1980's.

I hope all the plans are an improvement. It's always amazed me that more restaurants here aren't able to take advantage of a lake view! Shoney's has one of the best views around, which still blows my mind. It would have been a great spot for a really special place.

Even the trash guy in Hiawassee has a lake view lot right on the highway! What a waste. But, he'll get a great price if he ever sells it.

It's too bad about all the firings. Maybe they'll rehire some of them after they reconfigure everything?

Maybe Enrico's will go back to their old location, since it's still for rent.


Shadow,

Thanks for the rating for Asiano's! Good news.

Coosa,

I lived in Marble from 2001 to early 2005. Marble is like a suburb of Murphy, even though it has it's own post office. All shopping is done in Murphy.

Although I prefer living here now, I have a soft spot for Murphy just because of the time I spent there.

But, I have to say . . . I think we'll be waiting a long time for Murphy to get a restaurant right.

Even Shoebooties . . . the food is good, but they often have the most chaotic service I've ever seen.

I used to work for a native who had a business right down the street from Shoebooties, and they would only get take-out from them because of the service. I often went there at lunch to get the take-out and witnessed the chaos.

The other good restaurant, "Doyles", is all over the map. They vary from wonderful to so-so on any given night.

In North Georgia, it seems like all the restaurants are supported by both natives, tourists, and newcomers.

In Murphy, the better restaurants are mostly supported by newcomers; you don't see that many natives in them.

It's just a different sort of town.

I guess Enrico's thought that selling beer & wine there would increase the sales, but it hasn't as much as they thought it would.
I love sitting outside at Enricos or the Yacht Club. Love the view of the lake.

The only place that allows brown bagging in Blue Ridge is the cabin place next to Roses. I understand that it is quite crowded there also. Guess we will stick to Monets til someone buys the Village!

Coosa, did y'all ever try Olie's on a weekend evening? Are they still doing dinners with the new owners? Monet's is good, but I just couldn't eat at the same place 5-6 nights a week.

Ollies looked packed last night. They were having some sort of special German meal for dinner. The menu sounded appetizing and I thought about going there until I saw the parking lot.

They did do a german menu, for the 2nd time on Thursday night. I only ate there once on the weekend and the menu was so limited, almost all seafood, which I can't eat. Maybe the new owners will change things.

I haven't been to Enrico's since they were at their old location. It used to be wonderful!

But when they moved, everyone kept telling us they weren't the same. They said the quality had gone down, the prices had gone up, and it was a different crowd. They also got rid of their great bread. All they gained was a bar.

So, I have been discouraged from going.

I also heard from a worker at my bank, that Enrico's used to have a lady who managed them at the old location. They demoted her when she got pregnant (or something like that), and Enrico's has never been the same since.

My business partner was just saying that he prefers to brown bag his wine anyway.

That way, he gets exactly what he wants to drink at a lower price!

No one went to Enricos for the drinks anyway back then; they went for the incredible food.

Well I have been to Doyles twice and I did not care for the food. I have always had good luck and food at Shoebooties, but it is so hot in the summer! I use to love Enrico's but I have not been there since they moved.
Actually, Monets is a lot cheaper. They don't charge any set up fee for ice and glasses like Doyles and Enricos.
Since we drink diet sprite and they don't carry it, Monets does not charge us anything for drinks, we provide our own. Most restaurants would not let us do that. But we are good customers who eat there 6 nights a week so they are lenient!

LOL! Thats one of hunnys fewest best friends. He can be hilarious.
Thats been in their family since land lots and trust me when I say, they dont need to make money off of selling it. They are VERY sentimental over that land. The father started specing wayyyy back when and then did the owner financing which back in the day in other areas of Hiawassee. He done well. I can ALMOST bet money that NO Amount of money will make them sell that land. Hunny said theyve been offered LOTS of it before and said no thank ye kindly. However, I think with MOST of the junk cars gone from when he had a car lot there, its lots more appealing than it was back when it was a car lot.

We are partial to that family. Hunny dont call many people friends and well he and the feller been close since they were itty bitty.

DoC,

And guess what else?

He's OUR trash guy too!!!! They do a great job; we like them. Heck, they were the only ones who would answer their phone when we were calling around for trash pickup!

How interesting. I had a hunch that he must have gotten offers before. Now, don't you think it would make a great lot for a lakeview restaurant???

Tell him I said so! LOL

I sure think so too. They could even do it cause his wife can do some reallly terrific catering. I told hunny to tell him you said hello ;). hehe! Heck, they have a building right there they could restorate and walah.

Hunny ya know asked me to marry him on Bell Mtn after we had discussion over it being a great place for a restr.

Yes I totally agree with you about Shoneys.. what a shame! :(
