When Chris and Micki first met, they quickly bonded over their shared love of food. Chris reminisced about the spicy jambalaya, the creamy crayfish étouffée, and the rice and beans of his native New Orleans, and Micki shared stories about growing up in her parent’s restaurant. Like shrimp and grits or onions and tears, the two were a natural pair. They got married and officially combined their culinary passions, forming their own restaurant, Who Dat’s Southern Food.
Guests are drawn into the shop by the wafting smells of spicily seasoned seafood, andouille sausage, and pulled pork that’s been slow-cooked with a dry rub for 10 hours. One weekend a month, they set up shop outside to have a southern boil, letting guests experience the sociability and great tastes of the south without meeting, befriending, and subsequently boiling Mr. Peanut.
Pairs cruise around The Ridge Golf Course's scenic tree-lined fairways in a four-wheeled conveyance, trying their hand at the par 3 through par 5 holes while carefully avoiding hazards. Located on the site of an old farm, the 18-hole playground provides a vintage, homey backdrop to four hours of meandering play. After finishing tee-projectile sessions, duos can refuel stomach supplies with a $10 credit at the Log Cabin Restaurant. Set inside a 240-year-old wooden dwelling, the eatery serves up homestyle cooking to links-rambling souls in need of a good meal to celebrate accidentally hitting that defunct Soviet satellite.
The friendly staff at Maggie Moo’s Ice Cream and Treatery churns dozens of creamy flavors fresh each day before enhancing frozen creations with inventive mix-ins and toppings.

Mexican culture permeates every aspect of 3 Margaritas, from its namesake cocktail and south-of-the-border fare to a colorful interior packed with festive touches. Scarlet hues smolder on walls like fire-engulfed strawberry orchards, working in aesthetic harmony with vibrant wooden chairs, each carved with an intricate bird or flower. Servers weave between these chairs to dole out menu items prepared with just as much exotic flair, including pizza mexicana—an entree that swaps crusts for flour tortillas packed with shrimp, chicken, and steak—and signature fruity margaritas.

Daily specials reinforce the pub’s friendly aura, including on Tuesdays, when kids eat for free with each paid adult entrée.
