The restaurant occupies a historic building full of southern charm and history. That building is Historic Butt House, circa 1914, in downtown Blue Ridge, Georgia. The Butt house was originally built by Col. William Butt, attorney, Mayor of Blue Ridge and member of the Georgia Legislature. Margaret Mitchell, author of “Gone with the Wind,” was a friend and frequent visitor to the home. Fanny Butt, wife of Col. Butts, is said to have hosted a party to celebrate the book’s success at which all the guests dressed as characters from Gone with the Wind.
The restaurant is open most evenings and offers an afternoon brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 12-4. Reservations are highly recommended at any time and especially during the summer Ocoee River rafting season.
