Tuesday’s Treats #128

The Village Tavern

Location: Alpharetta, Ga

This place is great. The staff is nice. The food is yummy. But the warm butter cake is A. M. A. Z. I. N. G!!

This restaurant fills up quick during the lunch hours of the weekdays; so, be sure to get there early, or better yet, just call and make reservations for the time you need. The warm pimento cheese dip is definitely a great start to a great meal. The salmon is absolutely delicious. We also ordered the blackened grouper, but it wasn’t quite the favorite. The shrimp and grits was tasty, but the shrimp was boiled or steamed rather than blackened, as I like it, and it had a lot of bacon in the dish. I’m probably just a little more partial to the Charleston-style preparation to shrimp and grits, but if you like your shrimp and grits prepared this way, you’ll love the dish. If seafood isn’t your style, they have a plethora of items to choose for lunch, but be sure to save room for dessert!

There are several desserts that look delicious, and one in our party ordered the creme brûlée. She said it was wonderful, but I have to say that warm butter cake is ABSOLUTELY delicious!! Be sure to share it with a friend, because even though, you’ll want to scarf down the whole thing, your tummy might just not thank you for it later. Lol! I’m still having cravings for this thing, and I’m begging my husband for a return date very, very soon!! 😊

This is this is one of our favorite places to eat in Daytona. The seafood is wonderful, and the huge salad bar and “fixin’s bar” is to die for! It. Is. SOOO. Good!! The salad bar has so many great choices, and the fixin’s bar is full of cheese grits, baked beans, fried cinnamon apples and cornbread. You could simply fill up here, but the seafood is worth ordering. They have tons of choices, from fried shrimp to blackened swordfish.

We have had several different entrees, and the menu is quite extensive. I think our absolute favorite is the blackened swordfish and the bblackened mahi mahi. Oh. My. Word! It is so delicious!! You even get a homemade cinnamon roll served with your meal. Oh, I’m craving these things right now. Yum!!
