Upstairs the setup features a 22-person private dining room and 40-person capacity mezzanine seating.
The establishment hosted recent dinners for Georgia Military College presidential candidates, receiving complimentary feedback. Aubri Lane’s will open on any standard off days to do a special event or big group party.
They provide off site catering also.
Aubri’s cut out the late night crowd to refocus on great food. They do accommodate guests until midnight Friday and Saturday evenings.
“I want to get back to focusing on what we truly are, and that’s good food and entertaining people,” Medders said.
Together with chef Adam Meade, the Aubri Lane’s owner researches menu creation for months at a time, developing new items and ingredients. The restaurant places heavy emphasis on evolving the product.
The food has to look and taste perfect.
“You eat with your eyes first,” Medders said. “If it looks good, it has to taste good, which it does.”
For those take out concerns, the restaurant goes up on KNG Delivery next week. Customers can quickly order the same quality food for home consumption.
“We try to let people understand it’s casual dining with a taste of Southern elegance. You don’t have to pay fine dining prices to sit in a nice restaurant and enjoy nice food,” Medders said.
The restaurant is located at 114 S. Wayne St. Call (478) 454-4181 or visit www.aubrilanes.com for reservations or pick up.
