Colorful history and a delectable menu rival one another for the spotlight at Simp McGhee's, Decatur's signature restaurant. Located in the Old Decatur Historic District, Simp's saloon atmosphere lends credence to fascinating stories about the goings on of a riverboat captain who docked there in the 1800s. Experience the history while waiting to enjoy seafood-filled mushroom caps; snapper topped with shrimp, crab, mushrooms and green onions; and beef tenderloin marinated and cooked to perfection, all enhanced by daringly delicious desserts.

Seafood-Filled Mushroom Caps

Named for a 19th century riverboat captain known for his practical jokes and beer-drinking pet pig, Simp McGhee's serves a variety of Cajun-inspired seafood and beef dishes in a quaint, elegant atmosphere. The restaurant's signature dish, mushroom caps, makes a great appetizer to share, but you'll want to keep them all to yourself. Tender mushroom caps are filled with bacon, jack cheese and creamy seafood dressing for the ultimate in predinner snacking.
