Peachtree Section will gather at the river! That is on Saturday June 10th at the Toccoa Riverside Restaurant on the Toccoa River in North Georgia, located 9 and half miles south of Blue Ridge. This rustic watering hole is on the edge of the Chattahoochee National Forest and is bustling with residents in the evenings. The owner Tim, confirmed that they had served over 500 dinners of catfish and locally sourced mountain trout the Friday evening before I arrived on a Saturday morning in October. We will have a private dining area on the lower river level or weather permitting be served in the courtyard “al fresco” (French for outdoors on the river bank). You will have an entrée choice of:
- Grilled Salmon on a garden salad
- Sautéed Pecan crusted mountain trout cooked in pecan butter (the owner’s specialty)
- Broiled mountain trout
- Chicken marsala
Entrees are served plated and accompanied by locally sourced squash medley and turnip greens. Bread and hush puppies will be available as well as coffee, tea, or water. The water helps wash down a desert of homemade peach cobbler with ice cream. A cash bar will be available with orders taken by the dedicated servers. Tim has a sign upstairs that announces that “bad water, drink at bar”. I did not see any locals at the bar drinking water!
Members and one spouse/guest are FREE. Additional guests will be $18 per person.
Registration is required.
