Looking for a hidden gem to enjoy a casual lunch or dinner in Woodstock, with a warm and inviting atmosphere, friendly southern style service and some of the best food around? Check out eat. Yes the name of the restaurant is eat. Eat at eat. See how fun a name and lowercase branding can be? 🙂
The restaurant called eat at river park is already ranked No. 1 on Yelp for Woodstock restaurants and has 53 5-star reviews on Facebook and seven 5-star reviews on Google. Eat only opened a few months ago in April 2018, and is creating a fantastic following in the community. It is well deserved!
It’s even more incredible considering they are only open three days a week, on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. The owners believe in a balanced life, and raising children while owning and operating a restaurant is hard. Hats off to them for having their priorities straight.
Why is eat so popular?
Food is presented in a beautiful and unique way, in mini cast iron skillets, on bamboo cutting boards, and in cute little dishes. Food is cooked from scratch by a passionate chef and her staff, like the coffee & spice rubbed wings with a sweet heat sauce, house-made creamy pimento cheese, creole red bean hummus, apple & pecan chicken salad, and crispy grits with creole aioli sauce.
The locally owned and chef operated restaurant offers one of a kind cuisine in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Georgia residents for over a quarter of a century, and Cherokee residents for 18 years, Chef Mo’s Louisiana heritage coupled with her husband Jackson’s fondness for southern comfort foods creates one of a kind food offerings. Popular menu items include chicken and waffles, braised short ribs, potato salad, shrimp po boy, and incredible homemade desserts like Louisiana pralines “pecan candy”, glazed doughnut bread pudding with a vanilla-rum sauce, and peach waffles foster with a scoop of brown shugah vanilla ice cream.
