Swallow at the Hollow Restaurant Review

: Within the confines of an authentic, tin-roofed north Georgia residence brought down from the mountains, Bill Greenwood, who also owns Greenwood's on Green Street, dishes up tasty Southern fare. The patio fills with guests waiting for tables, especially on weekends. The barbecue (both chopped and ribs) has changed here; no longer smoked, ribs are braised then finished off on a grill and slathered with sauce before being presented. But still there's much to admire: Greenwood runs a farmers market and does a lot of farm-to-table, and much of the raw material is organic. House-made grilled sausages are Italian rather than Southern (and loaded with fennel seed), and there's house-smoked turkey as well as homemade pickles. Coleslaw is chopped fresh for each day's service; we also suggest the creamy, rich macaroni and cheese. For vegetarians, there’s a sandwich with portobello, smoked Gouda and fried green tomatoes. Chocolate chip-studded banana pudding and the famous pies from Greenwood's are available for dessert. There's a perfunctory wine list, so go with a good draught for a quaff.
