Good Eatin': Simple, Southern and satisfying at Bay South


November 04, 2014

    Is the lunch rush weighing down on you? Want to stray from your routine of the same restaurants on the same route? Bay South, about 10 minutes from Statesboro, near Brooklet, is a quaint little restaurant self-described as “a little taste of Heaven on Highway 67.” The menu boasts country classics like fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy as well as more modern fare, like the mushroom Swiss burger.
    The simple building emits a calm, comforting vibe consistent with the Southern feel of the rocking chairs on the porch and friendly atmosphere of the two or three servers present. The simplistic design of cafeteria-style tables and very little decoration only add to the hominess.
    A lunch special is offered for those who are local to Brooklet or are willing to venture out that way. The meal includes one of three meat dishes available, which vary daily; two sides from a long list of a country girl’s (or boy's) favorite Southern dishes; and cornbread or a biscuit, all for only $6.95. For an additional $1.99, the well-stocked salad bar can count as one of those sides.
    With only a few other people in the restaurant, the dishes arrived in less than five minutes. The quality of the food was not impaired by the quick service. The mashed potatoes and fried chicken were the epitome of a Southern comfort meal while the biscuits were just fluffy enough to balance out the relative heaviness of everything else.
    If lunch here seems a little out of your typical one-hour time limit, the restaurant is open for dinner Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Sunday lunch is also offered and breakfast is served every day of the week. Although the special is only available for lunch, the menu includes a variety of other meals for both lunch and dinner, including steak, burgers and seafood.
    But don’t forget about dessert. Sweet treats at the end of a meal are always the best and Bay South strives to put your grandma out of the pie/cake making business. Once you have a slice of their 32-layer chocolate cake, you’ll regret that you’ve already filled up with the savory home cooked meals scattering the menu. A different sugary dessert is on special each day and is handmade that morning.
    For a less crowded alternative to the usual Statesboro eateries, Bay South is the classic Southern choice.
