When you have a craving for some upscale cuisine with a casual touch, it’s not always easy to find a restaurant that fits the bill. Until now. Dyron’s Lowcountry, located on Oak Street in Mountain Brook’s Crestline Village, combines seasonally fresh, upscale Southern-style cuisine with a casually elegant, relaxed atmosphere. The distinctive menu with well-considered, seasonally changing dishes represents owners Dyron and Sonya Powell’s dedication to serving local and regionally sourced fare, as well as their love for the familiar foods of the Lowcountry and coastal regions of South Carolina, Georgia and Louisiana.

I recently had the grilled tuna with butternut squash, turnips, rutabaga, onions, wilted spinach and a muscadine red wine reduction. Definitely a culinary highlight!

The shrimp and grits is always spot on, served with little green beans, tomatoes, capers and scallions.

Grilled salmon on a back drop of succotash may be enough to share, but trust me, you won't want to!

The Powells opened Dyron’s Lowcountry in 2009, bringing an authentic taste of the Lowcountry to the Magic City. Executive chef Alan Martin, who previously owned Anniston’s Victoria Restaurant in the historic Victoria Inn and also worked under the master, Frank Stitt, at Bottega, joined Dyron’s in 2014. And without a doubt, he brings passion and skill to the table.

Dyron’s is fantastically versatile, making it a great place to celebrate milestones and special occasions. Perfect for a date night or dinner with friends, it’s also a family-friendly destination offering a superb kids’ menu with options like chicken fingers, fried shrimp, fish bites, hamburgers and grilled steak served with fries or buttered pasta, a vegetable and a chocolate sundae.

Dyron’s is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday, and Sunday for a champagne brunch. October is the perfect time for enjoying the spacious covered patio, too!
