Shenandoah at the Arbor Fine Southern Dining
Shenandoah was built around creative dishes inspired by the best American flavors. Our menus reflect not only the heritage of our restaurant, but the heritage of our family. Both of Rick’s grandmothers were Texan and their delicious home cooking inspired many of the recipes we use today. Granny Wilson’s Fried Chicken, served with hot mashed potatoes and gravy, is a true Southern classic that may be the best you’ll have. Our German butter cake is another family favorite; served warm with a dollop of ice cream, it’s serious comfort food.

Rick’s father was a colonel in the Air Force, which kept his family moving throughout the United States. Rick collected recipes from his years on the road, and our menus reflect his travels. You’ll find Cajun rib-eye and seafood gumbo from New Orleans, sand dabs from San Francisco, baby back ribs from Santa Fe, summer pasta from Sonoma, and maple-glazed salmon from Solana Beach, to name a few. Of course, we’re not short on Texan fare, as our hickory-smoked prime rib, chicken fried steak, and fried green tomatoes can prove.

Perhaps some of our best-known offerings are the hot apple fritters served with every meal — our version of a Southern welcome. We also take pride in our table-side salad basket service and our variety of gluten-free selections. Please check out our Special Events for regular weekly happenings.

And, if you are planning an event or celebration, consider our picturesque, outdoor patio surrounded by beautiful Mulberry trees.

So, check out our menus!  Then, stop by for a little Southern hospitality, a fritter or two, and some of the best American flavors you’ll find anywhere.
