I took advantage of the great reviews I've seen on the net lately for the Shores Restaurant and took a dear friend there for lunch today. I used to go there back in the 70's when they had the best prime rib dinners in the history of that area. I see now that it has changed its venue to Southern Cooking and I really wanted to go here today after spending about 6 years in Chattanooga, Huntsville and Atlanta in the mid 60's. Long story short, we walk in and the place is literally empty, dark and drab with one lone bar fly at the bar sipping vodka out of a straw. We were informed that until further notice, no food will be served at the Shores Restaruant after they re-group. It seems that the lady that was running the kitchen with her husband had suffered some sort of nervous breakdown and walked out a few days ago.Needless to say, we were very unimpressed with this dump!

I went out with a friend looking for a food adventure, and found it at The Shores Restaurant. Admittedly, it's more pub than restaurant--not the kind of place I'd take a date. However, I know Southern food very well, and this place serves the real thing. The catfish was cooked perfectly. I recommend the hot sauce over the tartar to compliment the catfish. And whatever you do, don't pass up the gumbo. As a meal, the helping of gumbo is a little light for a big eater, so compliment it with an appetizer and a side of hush puppies. (For a lighter eater, the portion is just right.) The prices are just right. In a more upscale environment, these offerings would demand a much higher price. I have quibbles about the service. Our hostess was friendly, and treated us like welcomed family members come to dinner. This contributed to the overall Southern food experience. However, had she asked, we would have ordered desert and another drink. Overall, I won't be taking my mom here because she'd be turned off by the liquor and football (if your mom is into liquor, football, and food she'll love this place), but I will be going back and I can't wait to try the breakfast menu.

This is a great Date Night restaurant. The food is excellent and upscale, the service is good and the atmosphere is very quiet. Get a window seat the view is great.
