One customer said we put her in a “happy food coma.” We’re taking that as a win y’all.

Our RYE Bar & Grill Americana classics, from Buttermilk Fried Chicken to Angus Eye Fillet on the grill, will have you saying, “YES MA’AM!” And that’s before you’ve even seen our dessert menu.

Everything is made in-house with fresh products and paired with the finest whisky. Or if you’re feeling like a different tipple, our spirits, wine and cocktails are damn good too.

No matter what your belly desires, you’ll find it served with a side plate of good ol’ Southern hospitality.

We’re ready for y’all. Grubs up.
