Winter at the Grill

November 30, 2013

The beautiful mountain winter is in full swing and it brings wonderful changes to our menu. Our herbs and greens are grown here and are coming in fresh. We are also featuring fresh produce from the Moore Family Farm as well as our very own. We have a wonderful fish selection every week direct from day boat fishers with American Red Snapper direct shipped from the Florida Gulf this week. We are very excited about our newest addition to the menu. Cioppino, an amazing mix of shellfish and market fish in a rich, house made tomato seafood broth. We are continuing to create more new dishes and can’t wait to share them with you all.

River Deep, Mountain High

Krista Reese | GeorgiaTrend | June 4, 2003

The Canyon Grill was born of simple foodways — owner Cal Hagood's grandmother cured ham and bacon and served biscuits and sandwiches here at a little country store called Bea's for more than 20 years. Cal's father promised her another restaurant would reopen on this spot, and after the place sat vacant for more than seven years, her grandson has more than done her proud.
