Farm to Table: Garfrerick's Cafe
Garfrerick’s started on the farm in Munford, with Dave taking produce to restaurants in Birmingham. He loved what they did with the produce, and he too could cook. So, Dave Garfrerick started Garfrerick’s Café in Oxford.
Dave wanted his customers to enjoy good food and be connected to it, not overly processed, see the pictures on the wall, where it comes from, and watch it cook. Dave wanted customers to know this food is truly a part of their community.
During the summer month’s Garfrerick’s dishes out their signature Tomato Salad, but they also have fresh corn, peas, and make their marinades and sauces.
About one mile from the interstate, nestled behind Red Lobster, Garfrerick’s Café and its modern but welcoming atmosphere, serve Scallops with fresh cream corn and sugar snap peas, Halibut with coconut Rice and Grilled Pineapple, Rainbow Trout with Lime Avocado Sauce, Shrimp and Grits and the favorite Pecan Encrusted Grouper. Known for their Sunday Vegetable Buffet, Garfrerick’s accommodates vegetarians and those needing gluten free.
Garfrerick’s also has a full bar with signature cocktails like their Old Fashioned Apple Pie and the I Love Lucy. Visitors come from all around, with many driving from Birmingham and Atlanta to enjoy. They have a banquet room and small meeting room available for events, and they’ve catered both large and small events off premise.
In 2014, the readers of Alabama magazine, a statewide lifestyle magazine, voted Garfrerick's "Best of Bama: Cafe," and local audiences voted Garfrerick’s “Best Fine Dining” in The Anniston Star 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards. The Café is also rated in the top 10% of restaurants in the Delta Sky Rewards Program.
