" It's like raking your hands through the sand and coming up with a jewel. That is how you feel when you discover Vickery Parke restaurant in the middle of Hartwell, GA. The exterior looks like many of the restored Victorian homes in this small town. It is inside that the culinary magic takes place."
...Johnny Beckman, Savannah Shorelines
"True to his hometown roots, Parke believes in bringing a touch of Northeast Georgia into his cooking... a local, homegrown chef using local, homegrown ingredients in dished he concocts daily from his head... no wonder Vickery Parke is a homegrown success story.
...Sean Williamson / Claudia Hopkins, Northeast Georgia Living
"As in many small towns, one of the venerable old homes has been turned into a bed-and-breakfast. But when you find that there's a fine dining restaurant here, you start to believe it might actually be a fictional place... but after meeting the Skelton family - you'll believe that just about anything is possible, even here in Hartwell, Georgia."
