Regulars say that the experience of dining at Rumors East is “like eating in someone’s extraordinary home.” That’s partly because the restaurant is housed in a renovated, Victorian-style Southern mansion that offers garden- and fireside seating—and partly because of the thoughtfully prepared food.
The menu is upscale and seasonal while at the same time showcasing the deliciousness of Southern cuisine classics like pork loin, grits with greens, and peach cobbler in generous portions. Locals love to sit in the garden for happy hour or after dinner with a glass of vino or one of Rumor East’s interesting and creatively prepared cocktails. The staff is known to be friendly, engaging, and willing to go the distance to make your evening special.
Offering complimentary valet service, Rumors East is open for dinner 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Most people recommend making reservations.
