Nicknamed, "The First Mountain City," Jasper is the county seat of Pickens County. It's located just 50 miles north of Atlanta and it is known primarily as the home of the Georgia Marble Festival, which is held every year on the first weekend of October.
But, what isn't that well known by those who don't live here is that Jasper enjoys a very exciting culinary scene. Anchored by down-home southern staples, the restaurants in Jasper offer truly outstanding fare, if you know where to look. Here, Southland's home builder in Jasper shares some of the best places to eat in Jasper.
Ask any resident of Jasper where the best place to eat is and you'll hear "61 Main" mentioned quite a few times. Specializing in American Southern cuisine, 61 Main also serves up gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and kid-friendly farm-to-table delicacies. The restaurant also has outdoor seating available and free Wi-Fi for its guests. The menu features local favorites like trout, rabbit, shrimp and grits, seafood lasagna, and so much more.
Sure, Jasper has its share of fast-food chains, but why eat fast food when you can get your burgers made-to-order and lightning-quick at Quick Burger Drive-In? Quick Burger Drive-In serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner with its varied menu of drive-in standards, like hamburgers, hot dogs, and sausages. Plus, the prices are as low as they can go.
Peking Garden gives you generous portions of your favorite Chinese dishes, but at very affordable prices. Its menu offers the standard-issue Chinese restaurant dishes, like Won Ton Soup, General Chicken, Chow Mein, and others, but it also has an inventive menu of seafood dishes that include Walnuts Prawns, Snow White Scallops, Sweet & Sour Fish Fillet, and Squid with Snow Peas.
Georgians know their barbeque and at Bigun's Barbeque, they serve the real deal. With a menu packed with standards like BBQ ribs, smoked chicken salad, and pulled pork, as well as fried pickles, broccoli slaw, pineapple pudding, and Brunswick Stew, Bigun's has everything you need to enjoy good old southern BBQ in northern Georgia.
If you want a great breakfast when you're out early on the town (or getting in ultra-late), then the Carriage House is the place to go. Only open until 2pm, you have to get here early if you want to enjoy the restaurant's all-star breakfast and lunch menu which features local favorites like Jack's French Toast, Breakfast All The Way, Quiche, Biscuits and Gravy, and Pete's Delight.
Arguably Jasper's culinary linchpin, the Woodbridge Inn Restaurant & Lodge provides its guests with impeccable service and outstanding American and German cuisine, and it's a tradition the restaurant has adhered to since 1880. It's most popular dishes include house-cured smoked pork loin, rainbow trout, apple strudel, authentic wiener schnitzel, bananas foster, chicken parmesan, and that only scratches the surface of the restaurant's menu! You simply can't live in or visit Jasper without stopping at the Woodbridge Inn Restaurant & Lodge.
Along with its growing culinary scene, Jasper provides its residents with a small town atmosphere and a beautiful mountainside setting. The fact that it is also home to the Sharp Mountain Vineyards only makes residing here even better.
