lowcountry and coastal favorites

"To describe growing up in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, I would have to take you to the marsh on a spring day, flush the great blue heron from its silent occupation, scatter marsh hens as we sink to our knees in mud, open an oyster with my pocketknife and feed it to you from the shell and say, “There. That taste. That’s the taste of my childhood.”

~ Pat Conroy, The Prince of Tides


Dyron Powell and his wife Sonya love to travel. Over ten years ago, they were fortunate enough to happen upon the lowcountry of South Carolina and Georgia. There they found relaxed lifestyles combined with one-of-a-kind culinary tastes. In their opinion, it is the greatest place on earth to slow down and enjoy great food and great friends.

In June 2009, Dyron’s Lowcountry Restaurant opened in Mountain Brook to share Dyron and Sonya's love for the culinary offerings of the region. Joined by Head Chef Randall Baldwin, the restaurant focuses on serving the Birmingham community fresh, local food made with whole ingredients. Dyron's Lowcountry is a place for those who have been to revisit their memories and refresh their pallets and a place for those who have never been to get an authentic taste of the unique foods.
