The famed Copper Top Bar at the Homestead is enough to make the restaurant worthy of induction. First opened in the late 1940s, the Homestead has soldiered on through ownership changes and economic hardships. Yet, the establishment remains true to its culinary roots. Fried chicken, country fried steak, chicken and dumplings—we hope she never goes away.
The Homestead shut its doors briefly and re-opened in late 2010 at The Copper Top Southern American Cuisine.
