When it comes to pub food, most people do not always equate it to the word fresh. On the east side of Atlanta, the City of Decatur is well known for its great taste in food and drink. However, one pub seems to stand out from the rest when it comes to staying fresh. The Corner Pub in Decatur, just a hop away from Avondale Estates, continues to make me a fan of their food and drink over and over again.
If you know this area of town well, you know that the Dekalb Farmers Market is just down the road from The Corner Pub. The farmers market is a place to find nearly type of food you could imagine and then some. The Corner Pub frequently uses fresh produce straight from the Dekalb Farmers Market, especially when it comes to their daily specials.
I visited The Corner Pub on Easter Sunday for brunch, and was pleased with my options for the specials of the day; mainly, shrimp and grits (a staple in the South). The spices and flavors of fresh shrimp were amazing. The Jerk Chicken Philly is another favorite of my family’s. My fiance has repeatedly ordered this sandwich, and I have enjoyed it at the pub and for leftovers as well.
The Corner Pub also maintains a great beer selection as well. It’s a great place to find local favorites like SweetWater and of course, their neighbor down the street, Wild Heaven Craft Beers. As many Atlanta locals know, Decatur folks love their beer, and The Corner Pub satisfies their thirst.
