Seasonally inspired and Southern honored cuisine

Uniquely crafted experience with character and flavor

Inspired and thoughtful hand crafted cocktails


The Moonhanger Group’s Dovetail has established itself as one of Macon’s most critically-acclaimed restaurants. Located in the center of a re-emerging downtown district, Dovetail serves uniquely crafted, southern cuisine. With dishes inspired by seasonal availability and traditional southern fare, our chefs use their expertise to highlight character and flavor, creating an experience that is familiar to any southern dinner table, yet re-imagined in a rustic and sophisticated dining room that speaks to the strong agrarian history of Georgia.

Founded in October 2012, Dovetail has been featured in Southern Living Magazine, Atlanta Eats, Macon Magazine, and has received “Diner’s Choice Awards” for Most Booked in Macon, and American Cuisine in Atlanta/Georgia. Dovetail is part of the Moonhanger Group’s line-up of engaging Macon destinations that include sister restaurants, The Rookery, H&H Soulfood, Natalia’s, and the classically restored Hargray Capitol Theatre.
