Highlands Bar and Grill

Frank Stitt’s pays homage to the southern ingredients he grew up with in Cullman, Alabama. In 1997, Stitt’s moved to the south of France to learn skills and work for Richard Olney, a well renowned chef. After working for him for a bit, Stitt’s moved back home to bring his skills and passions home. What he didn’t know was that his restaurant would be one Birmingham most populated restaurants. Stitt’s received the James Beard Foundation Award in 2001 for Best Chef, and the Craig Claiborne Lifetime Achievement Award from the Southern Foodways Alliance in 2006. He was also inducted into the Alabama Academy of Honor in 2009, the most distinguished award given to an Alabamian. The seasonal curated menu changes constantly, because of the ingredients from the local farmers and fishermen that are used to make the southern dishes. Add this to your list and remember to try the Stone Ground Baked Grits with Country Ham our Alabama movers and locals recommend.

The J. Clyde

After unpacking all day and the stresses of moving, you deserve an ice-cold beer or cocktail. The J. Clyde is a historic spot to locals of Birmingham.

The bar proudly has 70 craft beers, and over 200 varieties of bottled domestic beer options. If you don’t drink, don’t worry. There is always kombucha on tap, or ice-cold soda. Our Birmingham auto movers suggest pairing the food with the beer. Don’t forget to ask your waiter or waitress on which beer they recommend themselves.
