OK all of you foodies. There is another restaurant slated to open in our area the first week in August.
A few weeks ago I reported that Kim and Danny Adams had purchased the 5,000-square-foot empty building near the intersection of I-16 and Highway 67 South that once housed the gift shop/restaurant - Morgan Creek.
The Adams are opening Bay South restaurant in that building. Many of you may know the Adams, as Kim Adams is the owner of the 67 Antique Mall, which also is located along that section of Highway 67.
Kim Adams said she and her husband strongly believe in the location as it has proven to be successful "spot" for her antique business.
"We really, really like it here, and feel very attached to this part of Bulloch County," Adams said. "Historically, this has been referred to as the Bay area of Bulloch County, and that is why we chose Bay South as the name for the restaurant. We wanted to stick to the heritage of this area."
Adams said the restaurant will open for breakfast and lunch on Mondays and Tuesdays, and for breakfast, lunch and dinner Wednesday through Sunday.
"For lunch we will have a hot menu with meat and vegetables in addition to other items," she said. "For dinner, we will have a full menu as well including steaks, seafood and salad bar."
Adams said she and her husband spent the last several weeks visiting different restaurants from Jacksonville to the South Carolina coast.
"We want the food to be great, and not something that is in every restaurant," she said. "We are going to be serving certified Angus beef, and fresh seafood, not pre-breaded seafood that you can buy from a food supplier. We want everything as close to 'home cooked' as possible."
Adams pointed out that there isn't another restaurant within 10 miles of her location.
"I believe in this area, and feel that people will respond to a restaurant here," she said. "Also, we hope that the interstate will fuel a significant part of our business."
So, until next Tuesday, I bid you au revoir.
