Dine Out

Red Cabin at Green Acres

My favorite restaurant is Red Cabin at Green Acres. Great food using local ingredients. Fun, yet relaxing atmosphere, with friendly service. You can even see the wildlife outside by the pond while you eat.

Everything on the menu is delicious, however my recommendation would be the Dotyville Italian Chicken. For a side, make sure to try the green beans. Lastly, the bread pudding is amazing for dessert.

 

Thanks for sharing your yummy Dish with us and others, Jodi!
