My wife and I have been here several times and it has always been a great experience. They have great food for the price and a good selection of choices.

This is just more than your stop on the way restaurant, this is simple, tasty, culinary art on a reasonable price, see wine doesn't have to be expense to be that good, the good wine is the one you like for 10.00 a bottle, that's one of my philosophies, when we travel we avoid fast food and restaurant chains, we...

My husband and I had the honor of winning the chef's experience and what an experience it was! We received superb service and had a phenomenal meal! The steak and lobster were to die for and the gumbo was some of the best we've ever had! I've eaten at The French Market on numerous occasions for brunch, lunch, and dinner... More

We stopped here late on a Sunday morning, while traveling south from Atlanta. Just a few minutes from I75. When you walk thru the door you're in a very cute shop with home and garden accents, French country style. Super menu, many unique food items. Loft style brick rooms, nice decor. They also have a function room and an outdoor... More

Our Family of four had a wonderful experience at this locally owned,professionally run,establishment !! I would highly recommend anyone traveling through Henry county via I 75 to stop and enjoy a tasteful menu loaded with delicious entrées at reasonable prices accompanied by flawless service....an absolute recipe for success (pardon the pun). The ambience is warm and classy that paired with... More

I have not eaten food this good in a very long time! The restaurant has a previous french country store. The food is New Orleans fare. We have tried the boudin balls, shrimp and grits, red fish, coconut cake, and peanut butter cake. I cannot even stress enough how delicious this food is. I can't wait to go back. Our... More

This is a cool little place that offers something that I haven't seen in my travels. Boudin balls! They are a unique find in this area. They have an excellent Reuben and some of the best Mac and cheese offered in a restaurant. Their burgers are huge. The creme brûlée cheesecake was AWESOME. The service was friendly and not overbearing.... More

Great little place!. I love the little store with all the soaps and candles. The service staff was super nice. Restaurant atmosphere was wonderful. The Mahi was slightly over cooked but everything was wonderful otherwise.

Well, not ON the highway - close enough for convenience; far enough away to have a relaxing vibe. I saw the billboards advertising FMT, Googled it, liked what I saw, so we decided to have lunch there. A very short drive from the I-75. What a cool place! Interesting decor - good, fresh food - helpful server. I can personally... More
