a few weeks ago my husband and i listened to a gravy podcast episode about fish camps around gastonia, north carolina. we were so intrigued. so, on a recent trip to charlotte, we headed over to gastonia. at 3pm twin tops fish camp opened and people flooded in. by the time we left, nearly every table was taken! our server treated us like family; i thought at one point she may sit down at our table.
it was a treat for sure! a southern homecooked meal with a dose of southern hospitality. you could tell it was a tradition for many families to dine here at their local fish camp.
