Creative Accents and Scarlett's Garden Tea Room is the perfect place for a ladies luncheon, a little girl's tea party or a special place to take mom and grandma. Designed around a Gone with the Wind theme, the Creative Accents shop includes a variety of tea accessories and gift items, as well as a nice selection of Gone with the Wind movie memorabilia. Scarlett's Garden Tea Room offers a selection of light lunch fare and fruit teas in an atmosphere reminiscent of the antebellum south. This Southern experience is truly a treat for any visitor, but perhaps best enjoyed by the ladies of the family. -Lynn-nore Chittom
McNamara's Irish Pub & Restaurant is a wonderful Irish joint with a family-friendly ambiance. This pub plays live music every night and the service is truly impeccable, even on packed days. The decor and atmosphere give you a typical Ireland feeling. Do not miss its Kerry Lamb and the Scotch eggs.
Shipley Donuts, or Shipley's as it is also called, offers more than sixty different varieties of fresh and delicious doughnuts. This small, Southern doughnut chain began in 1936 in Houston, Texas. The Hendersonville store has been serving up delicious doughnuts for as long as any of the locals can remember and way longer than the larger doughnut chains have been in town. Shipley Donuts have a little more to them than some of their national competitors, and they're not quite as sugary-sweet. If you want a tasty doughnut and you like the idea of trying what the locals love, Shipley's is the place. - Lynn-nore Chittom
This place is all about sports. Whether you want to talk sports, watch sports or read sports, you will feel right at home. Seats at the bar are great for hanging out, but if you are interested in watching a game you should choose a seat near one of the big screens. Standard bar fare includes sandwiches and nachos, but the pride of the Scoreboard is the barbecue ribs. Plan on staying for the entire game if you order the ribs, as the portions are huge.
Thank God Doughnuts are simply heavenly. The doughnuts are every bit as tasty as any of the national doughnut chains, and customers can enjoy the added benefit of supporting a truly local business. The shop itself is conveniently located in the middle of downtown Hendersonville and offers a bit of seating for customers wishing to enjoy a bit of sweetness while sitting down. While most of their doughnuts are standard styles, their apple fritters are exceptional and very much worth a try. A breakfast stop at Thank God Doughnuts will leave you saying "Thank God" for Thank God Doughnuts!

While you wait for a table, have a drink at the bar and toss peanut shells on the floor. The wait at Longhorn Steakhouse is often long, but the steaks are worth it. The chef starts with a lean cut of choice beef, rubs it with Longhorn's signature spices and grills it to perfection. The succulent filet mignon, the hearty rib eye and the ever popular t-bone are all part of the culinary repertoire. The signature entree, a huge 22-ounce porterhouse steak, is beloved by serious beef lovers. Non-beef eaters can enjoy chicken and seafood dishes.

Sam's All American Sports Bar has been voted "Best Sports Bar" in Nashville seven times by the Nashville Scene Magazine, and they know what they're talking about. With two locations, one in Hillsboro Village and one in Hendersonville, all of Nashville has an opportunity to enjoy a game at Sam's. Unlike many chain restaurants and bars, Sam's puts just as much emphasis on their food as they do on the big game. The pizzas are handcrafted and creative and the burgers are juicy and delicious, but nobody really goes to Sam's just for the food, as there are plenty of other options in the area. Check out their website for Happy Hour specials and events. You'll be sure to have a great time at Sam's. -Lynn-nore Chittom
