Anyone know The Name Of this Place?!?

Okay, I am trying to figure out the name of a place somewhere in Ga. It was an old farmhouse or a plantation that had a Southern style eatery on it known for really good food. Think you could relax on the front porch in rocking chairs too while waiting. Also there are women there that are dressed up in colorful frilly hoop skirts like Southern belles. Think the ladies were some type of group with a funny name or something. Could have sworn I saw it on Ga. Hidden Treasures show a long time ago or something. Any help would be welcomed, would like to take a day trip and include this in the future to see & eat at lol but cannot figure out what it's called? Also if anyone has a list of places from those Ga. treasure shows, I sure would love to have it for future refernce as it had lots of great spots to visit:)

Could it be Bullock House or Blue Willow Inn? I haven't seen women in antebellum attire at either but that doesn't sound like an everyday thing anyway.

Thanks for both the replies. lol I have searched and hunted and have come to the conclusion that I must have confused some place in Ga. that I saw on a Ga. Treasures show with the Alabama Trail Maids cause that's how I remember them being dressed. To my knowledge there are no such groups in Ga. like this so I must be crazy in this case. Still, I plan on going to both your suggestions at some point & Buckners in LG. LOVE to find new things to do in the state especially things that involve good eating:)

The women did wear antebellum attire at the Blue Willow for years, may still do it on the weekends, but I don't remember them wearing that the last time I ate there (less than a year ago). The Blue Willow fell on hard economic times, and that may have been something they cut.

Buckner's is not open 7 days/week, so make sure you are going on a day they are open.

While eating at Blue Willow, downtown Covington and Madison probably have the biggest concentration of antebellum homes in a small area, in GA. So worth a drive. Buckners is about an hour drive down Hwy 36 from Covington.
