If you haven’t been to Wedowee Marine South since they’ve opened their restaurant, you need to drop in for lunch or dinner sometime! We’ve stopped by a few times when we were out in the boat and the food was quite good! They offer wings, burgers, pizza, BBQ sandwiches, chicken salad, house salad, and several other items on their menu. They hope to have beer and wine available soon. Stop in sometime and grab a bite to eat and help support their business!
