Owner description: We've been making blue-ribbon-good candy since 1935, and we still make it the old-fashioned way, hand-dipping pecans and candies using family recipes. Only the pick of the harvest makes it into our candies. Watch from our upstairs viewing area as favorites like pralines and pecan brittle are being made. Taste it all at the Free Sampling table. If the car's too full to take it all home, order from our website we'll ship it fresh to your door. Southern Living has named us one of their top food finds. You'll agree when you find our slow-cooked Southern favorites. Our hot buffet served daily, and you can make your own favorite sandwich or salad at our cold bar. Our hot lunch bar is served from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and our cold bar is served from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.. Our food area is filled with many delicious items including pickles, syrups, gourmet coffees, salad dressings, jams and jellies. We also have sixteen flavors of ice cream! Browse through our gift shop and find many unique and wonderful gifts. There is something for everyone. Home decor, gardening items, toys, garden flags, greeting cards, baby gifts, t-shirts, and a large array of regional and seasonal gift ideas are always available. We look forward to seeing you soon!

They have the best pecans. Lots of samples of the different flavors they make. Fudge is smooth and creamy. They have a nice size gift shop and lots of Alabama spirit wear. They do have a lunch buffet but we arrived after it had closed for the day. Staff is friendly and helpful.

This is a great place to shop, eat and sample pecans. We always stop here when we pass through heading south. Clean restrooms, great samples and wonderful gift items to bring home or to give to the people you plan to visit. The restaurant is a good value and I always stock up on pecans. Unique gift items as well as a friendly atmosphere make this a must see.

We try to always stop at Priester’s! From the rockers on the large front porch to the retail offerings to the abundant ways to eat pecans to the restrooms, Priester’s rarely disappoints.

We always stop at Priester's on our trip to the beach. It's the perfect place to stop, stretch your legs, grab a snack and shop. Be prepared to shop!!!!

We have been going to Priester’s for years! Any time we are remotely close, we stop by and load up on their flavored pecans. We haven’t tried one we didn’t like yet! The cinnamon honey glazed is our favorite but we truly do like them all. We are road trippers and this is our favorite stop of them all!!!
