What’s cool to do from to

Capital Cool

The Cool Factor

  • Legendary country music crooner Hank Williams got his start in the capital city and frequented many Montgomery restaurants. He was known to often write songs while sitting at the lunch counter in Chris’ Hot Dogs on Dexter Avenue.
  • If you’re not from around here, some of the lingo you’ll read and hear at area restaurants may be confusing. Here’s a little dictionary to help decipher Southern food speak.
  • Meat & Three: Usually refers to more casual “home cooking” spots and means the menu offers a plate with your choice of one meat (fried chicken, country fried steak, fried catfish — sensing a pattern here?) and three sides, usually Southern-style vegetables like fried okra, fried green tomatoes, squash casserole, creamed corn, collard greens (see definition below) and more. Often served with cornbread or biscuit.
  • Sweet Tea: The default setting when you order a glass of iced-tea down here. And sweet means S-W-E-E-T. Specify “unsweet” if you don’t want any sugar. Or ask for half-and-half for just a little sweetness.

Proud member of the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce

Montgomery’s not on the beach, but the coast is close, and you’ll swear it’s right next door when you taste the fresh fish, shrimp, crab and more being cooked up just right and served with delicious sides at The Wharf Casual Seafood. This fast, family friendly restaurant gets you your order quick, but it is not “fastfood.” Entrees come grilled, blackened or crispy and are served with two sides (try the cheese grits!) and golden hushpuppies. Try the signature dish, the grilled Mahi Mahi and Shrimp. And enjoy whatever you order with a glass from The Wharf’s worldclass wine list.
