I am excited to announce that we will have a new lakefront dining destination on Lake Hartwell this year. Sarah and Shane Dowler have operated the Uptown Lounge in downtown Anderson for the last 11 years. They will be opening The Local Pub and Eatery at Stone Creek Cove on the shores of Lake Hartwell in April. I have seen a preview of the food and drink menus and they look awesome. There will be great appetizers (can't wait to try seared scallops), made to order pizzas and sandwiches, and a full dinner menu. And you should be able to find something you will love on the craft beer and cellar wine list. They are in the midst of a complete remodel and have ordered 23 farmhouse tables from a local artisan. All will have great views of Lake Hartwell while you dine. Stay tuned for more details including the opening date, and when you come, make sure to save some time to let us help you find your spot on the lake.
