Our trip to Greenwood was filled with many good food stories. I should mention that over the course of the weekend, we ended up eating at The Mill House restaurant not once, but two times. We loved our pizzas so much on Saturday night, we thought we should try out more topping combinations on Sunday. (For the record, my favorite was the chicken, spinach and sundried tomato scenario on pesto sauce.) The Mill House is also home to Good Times Brewing, a local craft beer company, and my husband sampled their brews both at the restaurant and back at the Inn’s Fox & Hound Lounge.
There are many good restaurants located in the Uptown area and all-around Greenwood. Howard’s on Main (a deli), Polo’s (more upscale), and Buenavista Cuban Café (self-explanatory) are just a few that offer an interesting menu. We weren’t in town long enough to sample all of them, but we did stop into the newest restaurant, Southern Soul on Main, for our morning caffeine fix – coffee for my husband, sweet iced tea for me – and received a very warm welcome.
When we weren’t eating at the Inn on the Square or the Mill House, we did sample one other Greenwood restaurant, and it delivered on everything you should be looking for in a Southern “meat-and-three” place. Though we walked to everything else I’ve mentioned so far in Greenwood, we had to make a short drive to the Amish Oven, but the trip was worth it. We arrived right as they opened at 11 a.m., and the parking lot was already packed. They offered everything a self-respecting meat-and-three should have – crispy fried chicken, thick slabs of meat loaf, mac and cheese, okra and tomatoes, corn bread, peach cobbler, and (obviously) sweet tea. Stay tuned for the third and final update on our trip to the Old 96 District!
