Welcome to Vickery’s: A Lowcountry Tradition since 1999
Vickery’s Crescent Avenue Bar & Grill in Atlanta opened to the public on August 25, 1983 by three guys (Sam, Chip, and Jerry) and a dog (Dave) as a place to go for a good stiff drink and a tasty cheeseburger. We called the place Vickery’s after Margaret Vickery, for whom the house was built. Until the late 1970’s, Margaret lived in and operated an antique and fabric shop in the house. Rumor, based on facts, has it that Margaret Mitchell used to visit Margaret Vickery for hours on end (in part because she liked Margaret Vickery and because she hated her own house up the street). Speculation has it that a great deal of Gone With The Wind was written in that house. A bald-headed regular who had been a fixture since day one (Stalker) said, “Hey boys, let’s go to Charleston, people live longer by the sea”…he quit his job…threw his bar stool in the back of the Cadillac, and here we are. He and his baby boy (Jason), found the spot and we went to work. Vickery’s 1313 Shrimp Boat Lane Bar & Grill opened February 13,1999 in one of the country’s most picturesque locations – Shem Creek, Mt. Pleasant, SC. It is Vickery’s intent to serve a variety of food. From simple homemade classics to fresh, local seafood to creative dishes from various regions and ethnicities. All consistently good and fairly priced, served in a friendly, fun, and casual atmosphere with attentive, professional service. Please let us know how we are living up to our goals.
