This restaurant has amazing food. It is classic southern food, with slight twists that are amazing. There was nothing negative about the food. They do not give free refills this caught me off guard. Also, the house has a musty smell and the outside needs...More

The house is charming and the service was as attentive as it could be considering there were only two waitresses. The food was plentiful and okay. Our crab cakes were more bread crumbs than crab but tasted delicious. The experience was delightful even though the...More

My Husband and I have been here a few times for different occasions. Each time we had great service and the good was delicious. It is a great atmosphere for date night, gatherings, or for lunch for a girl's day out! Truly a hidden gem.

Visited Buttermilk Hill on a whim a few weeks ago, on a Friday night. We had had an early dinner and were passing through Sylacauga from visiting friends. We had heard of this restaurant so decided to stop in for dessert. We arrived about 8...More

We visit Buttermilk Hill at least annually; however, we should visit more often. Kara is a gracious host and the restaurant feels like walking into a friend's house for dinner. We are vegetarian and she will always accommodate our requests for a vegetarian meal. You...More
