The internationally acclaimed Blue Willow Inn Restaurant is located in the historic district of Social Circle in a  turn-of-the-century Greek Revival mansion. Formerly known as the Bertha Upshaw House, the mansion was built for Mrs. Upshaw by her husband, John Upshaw. At the time of construction, the house was one of the most substantial properties in Walton County.

While the Upshaws lived in their grand home, Margaret Mitchell, author of Gone With The Wind, was a frequent visitor during courtship with Redd Upshaw, her first husband. Redd Upshaw, of Walton County Upshaws, was the character basis for Rhett Butler in Gone With The Wind.

Whether dressing for the theatre or casually touring the area, you are invited to enjoy the Blue Willow's Southern feast. No one is allowed to leave hungry after feasting on a variety of Southern salads, meats, vegetables, breads and desserts. Along with your meal, enjoy sweetened iced tea, the "Champagne of the South," and lemonade.
