“This is really neat usually loud pub and restaurant located in downtown Macon that has a lot of really good burgers and a lot of burger toppings you would never consider like peanut butter (The Jimmy Carter Burger, I like it). It is a little more expensive but the burgers and atmosphere are really good.”

“Oliver's is on a corner in downtown Macon. It has a small bar and mostly seating for eating. Menu is smaller with good Italian, seafood dishes and sandwiches. Price is $15-$40 per person depending on entree and depends on drinks. Call for reservation and ask to sit in a booth in the front where the windows are and you can watch Macon walk by.”
