I grew up in the South, so I am very familiar with both country-style cooking and "fussed up" Southern. I'll be in town this weekend and am wondering which of the above (likely able to go to two) are worthwhile. I've been to Mary Mac's before and think they do a pretty fine job with classic Southern and sides, but I haven't been in about three years. The others are a complete mystery to me. Is Blue Willow worth the drive out to the "country"?
Of the more upscale options - Watershed, JCT, and Greenwood's (which straddles the line a bit) - which ones are worthwhile? Scott Peacock is no longer at Watershed, so it's an unknown quantity. I'm especially a fan of veggie sides (not vegetarian, but just like fresh farm vegetables - no problem if they are cooked with pork or fatback).
Other options I've seen mentioned here and there are:
