Dining summer casual

ANDERSON — It’s summer. Sometimes there’s just nothing better than sitting outside with your friends, enjoying good food, maybe some brews, and, of course, lots of good conversation. Rigo’s at Grandview offers just such a possibility.

Nestled up to the city-owned Grandview golf course, the restaurant offers an outdoor deck for a relaxed bite to eat with friends, most likely washed down with a beer or a glass of wine.

“Every chance that the weather is good for the deck, people are there,” said John Rigsby. He’s one of the four owners of Rigo’s, and serves as general manager. “I don’t know of any other dining venue in Anderson as good as that. It’s just a great place to eat.”

Whether you’re outside or indoors, Grandview’s 18-hole golf course makes a natural surrounding for an unhurried meal. As pleasant as the view is, the restaurant is casual and unpretentious.

“This is where people kind of come to have fun, and always have,” said Rigsby. Rigo’s offers a menu that makes it interesting, reasonable prices, good service and inviting presentation in a comfortable atmosphere.

Inside, there’s table seating in the bar area with ample windows looking out on the course. This spot can get a little enthusiastic whenever there’s a big game on TV, with flat screens all around for easy viewing. If you want a little calmer atmosphere, try the spacious dining room.

“My grandparents had their wedding reception in that room,” said Rigsby. Indeed, take a peek at the black and white photo hung above the mantel in the dining room. That’s Buck and Julia Rigsby standing on the terrace at Grandview in 1933, on the day they celebrated their nuptials. Receptions and parties continue today at Rigo’s.
