Appalachian Grill
About North Georgia

Eclectic as a way of life
Restaurant: Appalachian Grill
14 East Church St. "Under the Bridge"
Cartersville, GA
770.607.5357

e·clec·tic Selecting; choosing what is excellent from various sources.

Walk into the Appalachian Grill and see (and hear) what we mean when we call it eclectic. Whether you are talking about the music, architectural style or the food, eclectic is the word that comes to mind. Bluegrass and country mixed with blues and light rock. Stone and brick walls that blend into the dark tones of aged wood creating a warm ambiance. Food from across the country. It is truly a joy to behold.

Whether you like prime rib or shrimp, or anything in between, the Appalachian Grill is an excellent choice for lunch or dinner. Service is good, as is the food, but the home town attraction to locals and the proximity of I-75, where the restaurant is well-known to long distance travelers, makes it difficult to get prompt seating at peak times.

It is best to plan a stop before 12:00 or during the afternoon if waiting half an hour is going to be an issue. They only seat complete parties, so don't send someone early to get a table. Once seated the rich ambiance of this casual eatery enhances the experience. Even at its busiest it is possible to sit and enjoy a cozy conversation with friends or romantic chatter with a lover.

Appetizers are wonderful. One favorite is the crab-cakes, large enough to be a meal for a small eater, but a good start for those with an appetite. The breading is not heavy, as is often the downfall of this delicacy, but light and enjoyable. No fishy taste either, always a turn-off in this seafood delicacy. Another treat is the shrimp bisque, well-made, although a bit too much flour. Zesty cajun popcorn shrimp is another favorite.

Sandwiches are popular at lunch, and we liked both the French Dip and the open-faced prime-rib. The French Dip was served on a standard hoagie, but the dip was not overly salty and did not taste as if it were served from a can. The open-faced prime rib sandwich was essentially the French Dip with lettuce, tomato and onion.

Main courses run the gamut, mostly American, from scrumptious seafood and fish, to excellent chicken piccata, and of course, beef. The prime rib (which I don't normally order when eating out) was excellent, heavily laden with pepper and other spices, with a minimum of fat, cooked correctly to the order. The pork chops are good, but just slightly overcooked, which probably won't bother most people. A filet mignon steak, ordered rare was cooked to perfection, sizzling on the outside with a cool red center. A children's menu is available as well.

Our rating: Excellent
Pros: Eclectic menu and music.
Cons: Somewhat hard to find, wait times can be long.
Pricing: Moderate
