Jo Sanders, a longtime Cedartown restaurateur has re-opened the Creekside Restaurant in Cave Spring. “Business is great,” Sanders said.

Sanders is leasing the restaurant to buy from owner Dr. Marc O. and Brenda Wall.

The restaurant opens at 6 a.m. for a full breakfast and closes at 7 or 8 p.m., depending on customer activity. Sanders said at this time, she is closed on Mondays but is thinking about switching that to close on Wednesday of each week.

When asked about some of the favorite items on her menu, Sanders pointed to squash casserole and fried salmon patties. “Every Friday you get fried salmon patties and fish,” Sanders said.

“I owned one in Cedartown and sold it and I wanted to come to Cave Spring to start with, but my son said, no, let’s do it here at home,” Sanders said. She operated Jo’s Family Restaurant with her son Nick Sanders for a period of time before selling it. She said she’s already had a number of her regular patrons from Cedartown make the trip to Cave Spring and expects more to follow.

“We’re very happy with it so far,” Sanders said.
