Here at the Gage Hotel we love nothing more than some home-cooked southern comfort and fortunately we don’t have to venture too far down the road to find just that. Shirley’s Burnt Biscuit, right down the street from the Gage Hotel, serves up fresh-baked, warm, homemade biscuits with all the fixins.
