I noticed as were entering that there is a patio adjacent to the restaurant. I asked the hostess if the outside area is pet friendly and she said that it is. Another place where the 4LB Wonder would be welcomed. Nice to know.
The interior is stylish and inviting. It feels like it would be a great place to while away a rainy afternoon.

We ordered a lot of stuff. Most of it ended up coming home with us but I really wanted to try a variety of what was offered.
To begin we ordered two starters - Fried Green Tomatoes with Shrimp Remoulade and the Smoked Chicken Quesadilla. The tomatoes were crisp without being oily and just what you'd want in a good fried green tomato. The shrimp remoulade however made the dish. It would make just about anything you put it on better.

For mains we went with a couple of Southern staples - Shrimp and Grits and Country Fried Steak.
Crispy fried shrimp, creamy. cheesy grits and corn salsa. Every single thing about this dish was great. From the perfectly cooked shrimp to the bacon-pepper gravy; delicious, delicious, delicious.

In addition to all of that we also went for a plate of sides. Called a Veggie Plate on the menu. Four more choices... We ended up with Broccoli Casserole, Cucumbers & Tomatoes, Macaroni & Cheese and Jalapeno Slaw.

Last but not least is dessert. West Cobb Diner's desserts are made fresh daily so the selection changes. We went with a Lime Cake with some kind of amazing frosting. I can't for the life of me remember what the frosting was (cream cheese maybe?) but it was some kind of awesome.
If you're in the area of the West Cobb Diner, do stop in. The service is friendly and accommodating and the food is fantastic. The perfect antidote to the same old-same old.
