A Culinary Experience

The Rawls Restaurant offers a variety of culinary delights that combine Southern hospitality with food. Located inside an old-world charm historic hotel, located in downtown Enterprise, Ala., the restaurant combines specialty dining in a casual atmosphere.

Built in 1903 by Japheth and Elizabeth Rawls, the hotel was first named the McGee Hotel after the general manager, James Henry McGee who lived there with his family. It was later changed to The Hotel Rawls. The original hotel was two-story, and the front entrance faces the train depot.

The hotel was left to Elizabeth Rawls niece Margaret who married Japheth’s nephew Jessie (J.P.) Rawls. The couple enlarged the hotel in 1928 making it three stories and modeled it after a Spanish mission style hotel they had seen in Florida. It features chestnut and rare teak made at the family mill.

Set to be torn down in 1978, Hayden Pursley bought the hotel and spent three years restoring it to its natural beauty. The hotel was listed on the National Historic Register on September 17, 1980.
