AMAZING food!!! The place is set in the middle of historic Decatur and has a great atmosphere. The food does take a while to come out, but once it gets there, you won't be sorry. I've never had a bad experience. The food can be kind of expensive, but believe me, you get what you pay for.
We really enjoyed the ambiance and fine food at Simps. We are new to the area and have been seeking out fine dining experiences and found Simps to be and real find. the food was excellent, well presented and the wine list more than adequate. The service was fine but needed some requesting and wasn't proactive. Overall a great evening and we will be back.
Old pictures, newspapers, maps, realia and all kinds of memorabilia from earlier days of Decatur and the Tennessee River create an ambiance of indescribable delight, in both the restaurant and the bar area. And if you are seated on the first floor and are lucky enough to be served by Howard Townson, you will have a meal served with the greatest care and attention. Southern classic favorites are served both downstairs (where as of this writing smoking is still allowed), and upstairs which is a smoke free environment. On the stairway landing, you will pass a player piano and additional pictures and relics of by-gone days. By the way, Simp McGhee's story is told on the back of the menu. Try SimpMcghees once and you will, like we do, go back for a memorable dining experience every time you're in North Alabama.
This restaurant has great atmosphere for having a wonderful evening out. The food was excellent - I highly recommend it! A good choice for adults having a nice dinner. The stuffed mushroom caps are delicious & they are on the list of 100 things to eat in Alabama before you die!
This is one of my favorite restaurants that we go to on special occasions. The menu is different than other places. I love the salads with feta cheese. It is a little pricey, but well worth going to for dinner. I highly recommend it to my friends.
