Hillbilly Tea as its name implies serves tea, yet it also has brunch, lunch and dinner service as well. The restaurant remains true to its Kentuckian roots with dishes like succotash and corn pone for the children and frog legs or chicken liver paté for the adults. The 'concoctions' list also has some superb libations that highlight tea as a mixer. The Hatfield & McCoy is a simple smoked tea hooch and a shot of bourbon while the Beez Kneez uses Palmetto moonshine, honey, lemon and blank iced tea. Overall, Hillbilly is a little more upscale than what the name would have you believe.
