Founders With a Dream

What makes Highrail Southern Eatery a good-time destination for folks across Georgia? It began with a dream shared by two weary travelers.

Ken and Lisa Sweet were veteran business travelers with decades of experience working and living on the road when they decided to build a restaurant that captured the sense of adventure and camaraderie they experienced while dining with strangers in new cities.

Ken and Lisa recalled the easygoing, downhome, country-style cooking they had loved growing up, and wanted to create a modern, updated version for today. All they needed was the right location.

Southern Eatery Is Born

Before long, Ken and Lisa found the perfect site to found their restaurant in the old Hadaway Department Store building in Thomson, Ga. They got to work renovating the space, and in 2018, Highrail Southern Eatery opened its doors and began its mission of delivering memories and great food to customers from across the state and country.

Today, Ken and Lisa are part of the team that keeps Highrail Southern Eatery serving up delicious drinks, tasty meals, and lasting experiences every day. Stop by and say hello, and see how a dream can become reality!
