Magpie Meat & Three
The best smokehouse - Ribs (evening only), chicken, pulled pork. Fried Catfish! Great sides! Many regional beers on tap. Vegetarian options.
Their ribs (available after 5:30) and pulled-pork are unparalleled, though the cornmeal-crusted catfish is pretty great too. We inevitably order the hushpuppies, and sharing a meat & 3 order is usually enough. Pet-friendly patio.
Great local food with great local vibe. The option to get 4 sides for $10 is a great deal!
One of the best BBQ and Craft Beer restaurants in town. Very casual, kids welcome.
“Brunch, lunch, and dinner right in downtown with live music on the weekends. Great atmosphere for a night out. ”
“The best music students in the world come here summers to practice playing with top conductors and teachers. Listening to rehearsals is free. Tickets to performances are available online and at the box office. Do check online, many performances get sold out. ”
“Best brewery to hit after your outdoor adventures. Food truck and family friendly!”
“Opens at 5pm (closed on Mondays I think), AMAZING AND CREATIVE bar food, nice outside seating area (check out the specials board that floats around the restaurant). There is also a more upscale dine side attached.”
“Bike shop that sells beer, often has a coffee truck and or food truck, sells basic gear and supplies for your adventure. Hip place to hang out after your day in the woods.”
