Winter Hill's southern-style eatery is worth the trek (literally uphill from pretty much anywhere) for the shrimp and grits ($9.95), but if you've got a long afternoon to burn through we'd recommend trying a bit of everything—from buffalo-fried brussels sprouts ($6.95) to the pulled pork sandwich ($7.95) to the spicy coconut curried goat stew ($18.95). The cocktail list is dominated with bourbon and gin, and ranges from old-school classics to local favorites and house-made concoctions. A respectable wine list plus a wide variety of local and imported beers are also available.
