Our Story

Where It All Began

LaFayette’s Bon Temps Tavern opened on the Courthouse Square in Fayetteville, January 2021. Owner, Larry Graves, is a lifetime resident of Fayette County and committed to the community where he raised his family.

Ten years ago, Graves opened Olde Courthouse Tavern on the square. He brought a local gathering place, eatery and watering hole to downtown Fayetteville. He saw how it brought people together. He saw how it became a place where good friends, good food and fun could always be found.

In 2020, when the world was reacting to a pandemic, Graves saw a need to again give the Fayette community a local place to relax, escape the stress of the day and enjoy the comfort of good food. He knew he wanted to open another restaurant and decided to bring the flavors of New Orleans to his community. 

LaFayette’s Bon Temps Tavern is named after our county’s namesake, Marquis de LaFayette. It is also committed to being a place where Fayette countians can come for a good time (Bon Temps). 

The decision to choose Cajun cuisine was in hopes that it would bring a new and different dining option to our area. Graves knew that people like variety. And, people like good food offered in a good atmosphere. He set out to bring the feel and flavors of New Orleans to downtown Fayetteville. 

When you visit LaFayette’s Bon Temps Tavern, you will find a warm and inviting atmosphere and a menu offering a wide variety of authentic Cajun cuisine.

We are honored to serve our community and the south metro Atlanta area.
