The history of Nox Creek Southern Grill

The land on which Nox Creek Southern Grill – one of the premier breakfast restaurants in Atlanta - and Nox Creek Lounge now sit has evolved immensely since its first known inhabitants, the Creek Indians, roamed the land in the early 19th century. The historically rich site has been occupied by Andrew Jackson’s military, shaped into a cotton and corn farm, a prime spot for the summer and country homes of some of Atlanta’s wealthiest and the location of a well-known tavern and grocery. According to legend, the owner of the tavern, Henry Irby, killed a Buck, hanging its head from a post for all to see — hence the name “Buckhead” was born.

Buckhead remained lightly populated for much of the 20th century until construction of nearby Lenox Square Mall began in the 1950s. The JW Marriott Atlanta Buckhead now stands on the site of an old stable, riding ring and WWII victory garden which sat adjacent to the shopping center.

Formerly called Lenox Grille, with its name derived from the “Nox” in nearby Lenox Square and Lenox Road, as well as the land’s original Creek Indian heritage, Nox Creek Southern Grill opened in 2011 and now provides Buckhead a unique, private event venue for lunches and dinners in Atlanta.
