Georgia Reese’s, created by former Indianapolis Colt’s player Gary Brackett and aptly named after his daughter, highlights the best of southern cooking. From alligator bites, to fried chicken and sweet potatoes, the menu is full of delicious soul food. With two locations in Indy, the north side and downtown, there’s twice as much goodness to offer.
The inspiration for Georgia Reese’s stems from Gary’s childhood and the suppers his father used to cook for the entire family. Both locations have a great menu, but uniquely different atmospheres. The north side location boasts mismatched chandeliers and prohibition era decor, while the downtown location is more urban and industrial. Of course, live music and a wide bourbon selection can be found at both as Georgia Reese’s is home to the second largest bourbon collection in the state.
Gary is an inspirational community leader always trying to achieve more and give back to those in need through his IMPACT Foundation. During our conversation, Gary let me sample some of Georgia Reese’s menu items. My personal favorites: Alligator bites, fish tacos, and the sweet potatoes.
Georgia Reese’s is also offering a full brunch buffet every Sunday from 10:30AM until 3:00PM. The cream cheese stuffed french toast and and live gospel music is calling my name. Maybe I’ll see you there!
