Pizza Worth the Drive

A short 30-minute drive from Lazy River Cottage in Mentone, AL to Summerville, GA will take you to our family's absolute favorite pizza place. When asked what their favorite pizza restaurant is, our kids will tell anyone that The Crushed Tomato in Summerville, GA has their favorite pizzas. It's a family favorite for kids and adults alike and a “must do” during our family’s visits to Mentone.

Located in the Maintenance Shop of the old Summerville Cotton Mill, The Crushed Tomato's friendly employees serve their delicious pizza straight from the wood fire oven that can be seen from the dining room. This quaint historical dining space offers a fun place to spend time with family.

Start your meal off right by trying their delicious Garlic Bites as a Starter. I'm sure all of their pizzas are delicious, but some of our family favorites are the Meathead, Buffalo Bill, and Chicken Bacon Ranch pizzas.

We can't call it a night without some hand-dipped ice cream. The kids love Supercow (colorful vanilla) ice cream and the adults love the selection of flavors as well.

If you like cheesecake, ask about their cheesecake flavors available that visit. They have homemade cheesecake by the slice that is divine, but check early because the tend to sell out quickly.

With prices to fit any budget, you can treat your family to a fun relaxing delicious meal you will look forward to coming back to again and again.

They are on Eastern Time so they are an hour ahead. It gets really busy in the evenings so plan ahead and don‘t be surprised if there is a little wait.

We hope you and your family enjoy your trip to The Crusted Tomato at 205 Montgomery Street, Summerville, GA 30747. Check them out on Facebook at The Crushed Tomato.

Hi, thanks for stopping by!

We happened upon this best-kept secret in North Alabama in 2017 when looking for a place to spend quality time with family.  The serene beauty of Mentone, AL along with its close proximity to Chattanooga, Huntsville, Birmingham, and Atlanta drew us in. 


Our family has spent as much time as possible on Little River by Desoto Falls ever since.  It has become a place of refuge and rest for our family and we have been blessed to have the opportunity to make countless memories in this extraordinary area of the state. 

We hope you and your family and friends will make as many wonderful memories here as we have.
