Oxford’s Restaurant Scene “Uniquely Carolina”

Downtown Oxford is certainly becoming a focus of attention. With new shops, a unique wedding and event venue, and an ever-growing list of festivals, the area of Main and Hillsboro streets are becoming the hub of the community. Helping to drive this renaissance is the emergence of a number of restaurants and eateries. 

Of particular value is the diversity of the establishments. From a Veteran woman-owned brewery to an upscale restaurant fulfilling the dream of a retired police officer (and the epicurean dreams of Oxford foodies), to an emerging bakery – Oxford offers an assortment not normally found in a community its size. 

So come join us – relax, grab a bite to eat – and experience what makes Downtown Oxford’s restaurant scene “Uniquely Carolina”….and “Uniquely Delicious.”
