Southern Charm Restaurant

Welcome! Our goal was to create a restaurant with a warm, inviting feeling. We want an atmosphere where you can enjoy a little Southern Charm. The menu is designed to give you a taste of the Deep South where everything is finger lickin` good and our service should offer you the best Southern Hospitality around! I enjoy meeting new people and conversing with old friends, so please know that my managers and I are here to make sure you feel like part of our family here at Southern charm. We pride ourselves in knowing our customers, making new friends, and insuring the best possible dining experience. My brother (Dwayne), my sister (Christi) and I opened our first restaurant in August of 2004. Our experiences throughout the years have taught us many things, but the most important lesson we have learned: our customers come first. Without each of you, we would not have been blessed with the success we have had thus far. After selling our previous restaurants in the spring of 2013, we realized that we missed our family (employees) and friends (customers) a little too much; therefore giving us the inspiration for Southern Charm!

Black Sheep

The historic Butt House (circa 1914) was built by Colonel William Butt, one time alderman and Mayor of Blue Ridge, Attorney, and member of the Georgia Legislature. Colonel William Butt and his wife, Fanny Butt, were prominent and beloved members of the community. They frequently held social gatherings in their home. Notable friend Margaret Mitchell, author of Gone With The Wind, visited the home on several occasions. Fanny Butt hosted a tea in the home to honor Mrs. Mitchell and all those invited dressed in Gone With The Wind costumes. The Butt home was one of the first homes in Fannin County to have indoor plumbing, most of the windows and marble steps are original. The home has been given a gentle facelift to restore it to its original glory.
