From the time that I entered Windy Corner’s porch, I was completely charmed. My parents and I decided to take the baby for a drive on Saturday and ended up stopping for a bite at Windy Corners Market, Ouita Michel’s (of Holly Hill Inn and Wallace Station) latest creation. Since it was such a beautiful day outside, I was incredibly taken with the views of the horse farms across the street from the restaurant. We all sat at the table oriented so that we could see outside and enjoy a look at the beautiful bluegrass. Of course, the restaurant itself is adorable, too—complete with beadboard and hardwood floors. (LOVE!)
The charming atmosphere of the place and the cute Kentucky-made products on sale are reason enough to visit Windy Corner, but the food certainly did not disappoint. Our table enjoyed a cheeseburger, Mabel’s nut burger and a fried shrimp basket. It was so hard to choose what to order, so a return visit is definitely in the near future. We were so tempted by the extensive Po’ Boy menu and all said that we would like to try one of those next time. Everything sounded delicious! All dishes on the menu showcase local fare and produce (local beef, Weisenberger cornmeal, etc.), so it is certainly a restaurant that you can be proud to patronize.
Table space is limited, so plan to have someone in your party scope out a place to sit before you order. Hope to see you there—save me a seat!
