Bulloch House

47 Bulloch St., Warm Springs, GA - (706) 655-9068
Posted By Bill Golladay on 6/12/2014 5:37:00 PM
The Bulloch House features a Southern buffet with country cooking. This restaurant is located just south of the town center of Warm Springs. It is in a house that is over 100 years old and has several rooms that are used as dining areas.

The mainstays of this buffet are fried chicken and fried green tomatoes. There are usually about four entrees that vary daily. These may include baked chicken and dressing, tender and delicious roast beef, chicken and dumplings, baked ham, catfish, tasty chicken livers, and other Southern favorites. If you don’t want the full buffet, ask about the blue plate special which is available for lunch from Monday to Friday. Lots of good vegetables are available at the buffet that may include yummy creamed potatoes, lima beans, carrot soufflé, field peas, fried apples, black-eyed peas, green beans, etc.

There is a small salad bar at the end of the buffet line. Even if you don’t have room for a salad, there usually are sliced tomatoes available at the salad bar which you can get as a side vegetable. The biscuits have a good, old-fashioned taste. Desserts are not included as part of the buffet and must be ordered from the waitress. All are homemade including caramel layer cake, red velvet cake, slices of pie, and more.

There were some transition issues after the original owners sold the restaurant and the restaurant was closed for a brief period. But in March 2011, Peter and Sandy Lampert purchased the Bulloch House. They have done an excellent job of continuing the Southern traditions that made the Bulloch House a favorite destination for locals and tourists alike.

The town of Warm Springs is a historical attraction because of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. He came here often for medical treatments. His retreat was known as the Little White House and this is where he died in 1945.

Note: The Bulloch House is open for lunch seven days a week, but in the evening it is open only on Friday and Saturday. Dinner on Friday features seafood.
