The view at sunset is amazing here. Get a table by the window and feast on the view and yummy food at that same time. This restaurant would be perfect for romantic celebration. It offers a breath-taking view and quaint, cozy southern charm. Fantastic experience.

Previously featured on The Food Network and in other notable publications, the Old Fort Pub has become a tradition for over 35 years. Guests enjoy The Old Fort Pub’s “New Southern” favorites inspired with influences from around the globe. An excellent choice for celebrating a birthday, holiday or a romantic evening.
