The Term “Southern Cooking”
has deep roots and might create images in your head of a downhome, country atmosphere, and an easygoing, relaxed approach to living.
We built Highrail Southern Eatery as a way to capture a little of that laidback and rustic lifestyle, starting with the venue we chose. It helps make us a destination for weary travelers and loyal locals alike, and a place where you can enjoy Southern charm, delicious drinks, and mouth-watering meals, served in a welcoming environment.
A Special Setting
At Highrail Southern Eatery, we know that eating out involves all the senses and that every part of the journey can contribute to the overall experience. We know the setting is an essential element, which is why we decided to site our original restaurant in a renovated 1910-era department store in historic downtown Thomson, GA.
Thomson, named for Georgia legend and railway pioneer John Edgar Thomson, was the perfect place for us to set up shop. Highrail Southern Eatery recognizes and salutes the region’s long history with the railroad, going so far as to name our restaurant as a tip of the cap to the industry.
And the building we selected is equally as important. Highrail Southern Eatery operates out of the renovated Hadaway’s Department Store building, now renamed the Highrail Building. It’s a beautiful brick-and-beam structure that instantly creates a sense of heritage and connects us, and every guest who dines with us, to the past.
Highrail Southern Eatery is a place for enjoying good company and great food, with a menu of Southern classics both new and old.
Enjoy classic appetizers like chicken wings alongside new favorites like our Southern egg roll, and find out how good country cooking can be. And we offer specialty cocktails, draft beers, and wines that can be the ideal complement to your meals.
Our entrées keep our guests coming back as well, with the best and freshest surf & turf in town, and country favorites like shrimp & grits and fried catfish that help create a sense of coming home with every bite.
