We enjoyed our meal at Yahoola Creek Grill. The grilled salmon with grits was quite good. The ambiance is nicer than what you would expect at a strip shopping center.

The daily specials are amazing and the menu has a great selection too. The pricing is a little high. Spent $32 (before tip) on a cup of soup, daily pasta special and a grilled cheese. No drinks.

I had an amazing entree called vegetable cakes and there are several excellent salads that are vegetarian. I'm not sure whether they would be considered vegan.
