Maury County, Tennessee, delights visitors with entertainment and delicious food. Take a culinary trip and indulge your taste buds.
Erin Jaggers, tourism director for Maury County, invites you to visit the area and experience tasty meals served with friendliness in a warm atmosphere.
“We are fortunate to have several locally-owned restaurants with great food,” Jaggers said. “You can get a steak the size of your plate at Campbell Station Restaurant on Friday or Saturday night.”
Campbell Station Restaurant’s menu also includes catfish, frog legs and burgers.
Food lovers will have an unforgettable cuisine experience when visiting Marcy Jo’s Mealhouse and Bakery. The eatery has welcomed guests since 2007, when it was open in an abandoned general store built in 1891. Marcy Jo’s Mealhouse is famous for its cinnamon rolls and connection with country and bluegrass duo Joey and Rory. Joey, who passed away in 2016 after a battle with cancer, started the restaurant with Rory’s sister, Marcy.
“At Marcy Jo's Mealhouse and Bakery, you can get made-from-scratch desserts, breakfast, and meat-and-three lunches,” Jaggers said.
Marcy Jo’s other location, Marcy Jo’s Muletown, is just off the square in Columbia. The eatery opened in 2019, and in addition to delicious and healthy options, it features a stage for local musicians and storytellers.
Another must-visit destination for food lovers is Mt. Pleasant Grille.
“At Mt. Pleasant Grille, they have a variety of family friendly items on the menu and a soda fountain bar where you can get a root beer float for dessert or any other kind of ice cream,” Jaggers said.
“This is a hidden gem in Maury County,” Jaggers said. “They offer authentic and delicious Cajun food in a quaint atmosphere that you will love.”
Papa Boudreaux's Cajun Cafe and Catering Co. will satisfy your appetite with mouthwatering options, including crawfish and shrimp etouffee, gumbo and Papa’s Andouille Creole, made with Andouille sausage, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers and celery. For a sweet end of the flavorful meal, finish up with beignets and coffee.
For more sweets and coffee, make your way to Buckhead Coffeehouse. Latte, mocha, cappuccino or iced coffee will energize you and bring you happiness. If you’re in the mood for a cold and fruity drink, order a smoothie, which the barista will prepare for you from your favorite fruit - strawberry, banana, mango, peach, blackberry, raspberry or pomegranate.
Muletown Coffee Roasters will also be happy to serve you coffee and chat with you. The baristas of Muletown Coffee Roasters are all about getting together, enjoying life and celebrating with whoever is around, “just because.” From espresso and lattes to teas, the drink menu is overflowing with tempting options.
From savory breads to pastries and cookies, B’s Salty and Sweet is ready to please. B’s Salty and Sweet makes sourdough bread, using a 36-hour fermentation process, adding extra flavor and making the bread healthier. For visitors that prefer a bit of sweetness, the bakery makes babka, sweet, braided bread loaves. B’s Salty and Sweet’s version of pop tarts are homemade and feature the bakery’s pie dough crust, and a delightful selection of homemade fillings. Like many of the other eateries, B’s Salty and Sweet is a family business.
Community members of Maury County work together and help each other to provide an inviting and exciting experience to visitors. You can find some of B's Salty and Sweet’s baked goods in other locations, including Muletown Coffee and Buckhead Coffeehouse.
