If it's a cold wintry day, make a lunch stop at Satterfield's at 120 New St in downtown Macon. This friendly, relaxed, homey BBQ restaurant features a menu with plenty of choices. Be sure to grab a bowl of boiled peanuts as an appetizer while you ponder your selection. The Hobbit recently enjoyed some toasted pimento cheese sandwiches and a bowl of Brunswick stew, all sent south with a generous bowl of peach cobbler and ice cream. They know how to brew a good jug of ice tea too! Don't overlook this Macon gem!

Jeneane's Cafe

Eating lunch at Jeneane's Cafe, located at 524 Mulberry Street, Macon, is a step back in time and out of the fast pace of the work week. This causal homey cafe serves up good ole' country food in a really relaxed environment. Friendly staff and local people make lunch at Jeneane's a pleasant experience. One of the Hobbit's favorites is baked chicken with turnip greens, corn bread, and whatever other vegetable takes his fancy. They bake some tasty pies too! Swing by Jeneane's for some country soul food!

Bonefish Grill

The Hobbit had a treat recently when he went to the Bonefish Grill at 5080 Riverside Drive, Suite 506, Macon. This smart seafood restaurant is described on its web site as "Polished Casual®" and that is a fair self-assessment. The atmosphere was a smart-casual environment with an efficient air about it. The numerous waitstaff, dressed to impress, glided to and fro and were knowledgeable about the tantalizing menu.

In his usual procrastinating style, the Hobbit had difficulty committing to one item from the menu. However, he settled on one of the specials of the day: Swordfish steak. This sumptuous, thick steak was cooked to order and was very pleasing to savor. The Hobbit's guest selected Imperial Longfin stuffed with shrimps, scallops, and crab. The flavor of this dish was incredible. Bonefish Grill is definitely a quality inland location to enjoy seafood.

Prices reflect the quality of the food and service, but are not outrageous. All in all, a very satisfying experience and a place where the Hobbit will take guests in the future. Only negative was that the music was a little on the loud side, making conversation a tad difficult. But Bonefish Grill is a place to try, for sure.
