A couple we know told us about a wonderful little gem of a restaurant (in the small town of Thompson's Station, Tennessee, with a population of around 2,600), Circa Grill. Although it's not the type of restaurant we typically visit (We usually go for down home Southern country cooking, nothing fancy.), we were pleasantly surprised.
Circa Grill is an American Modern restaurant with Cajun/Creole food. Although it's upscale, it's also cozy and casual at the same time. The rural setting makes it even more unique.
During the warmer months, you can dine outside on the front porch.
However, since the temperature was around 45-degrees, we decided that indoors was a much better option!
We still had a good view of the scenery across the street which even included a caboose and pretty farmland.
The decor is stylish and vintage-
There is even a bar for those so inclined-
The food is Southern, gourmet, and delicious!

Greg thoroughly enjoyed the "BBQ Cheddar Burger" with "hand cut fries," because this menu selection encompassed all three of his favorite foods which are barbecue, cheeseburgers, and potatoes!
I decided to be a good little girl and eat salad, so I opted for the "Curried Pecan & Pear Salad" (not pictured) which I thought was beyond gourmet!
Our compliments to the chef, Lance Holcomb!
Our server Jo was was helpful and personable.
We were really impressed with our visit, and look forward to their Sunday brunch sometime. We heard their biscuits were especially tasty!
