Well, we've been coming to Cahill's often enough since... since they opened the restaurant, if not before... and we've never been disappointed, particularly with their signature fried chicken. But this time, my poor old chicken pieces, one breast and one wing, must have come from a chicken that hadn't had a drink in months. Small and dried up. The veggie... More

This place is crazily amazing. You can not have a more authentic southern experience with locals, staff, farm fresh food, and scenery. We positively loved the fresh food (OKRA AND TOMATOES WERE AWESOME!) For southern food, it was surprisingly "healthy" meaning not laden in butter and lard. The grits were perfect. I did order fried chicken here (How could I... More

The Southern-style cuisine was great! The fried chicken and catfish were fantastic and the sides took a long time to decide since there was such an array to choose from. I loved that most of them were a different take on the regular way of cooking. Each one had that little bit extra added in. The waiters are really friendly... More

Cahill's is a popular place to eat. Much of the food is local. In fact, you can buy fresh fruits, vegetables, and local honey to take home. I like the grilled fish and fried chicken. My husband lives the fried chicken livers and collard greens.

This is one of the most unique restaurants we have eaten at in a long time. The fried chicken was great and the farm to table vegetable are fantastic. The portions are large and if you go away hungry, it is your fault.

Very tasty, good quality ingredients. Had my first taste of biscuits, they were light as a feather. Coffee was great and constantly refilled. Service... More

Oh my, if you do nothing else go here to eat the candied bacon waffles. It comes with chicken tenders that are melt in your mouth and is what I get most visits here. Their biscuits are great and the orange juice is fresh squeezed! Yum!

Our friend drove us up here from Savannah. He said that the place would be special. He was right. The outside of the building is meager. The inside is a store and cafe. Our service and meals were exemplary. We had a passing storm while inside. The rain on their tin roof only added to our dining experience.
