About the Mystic Grill Restaurant
The Mystic Grill was inspired by two communities: the family and fans of The Vampire Diaries and the small town community it calls home. The television series, filmed in Covington, inspired partners John & Angi Beszborn and Ronnie & Kelley Johnston to bring the on screen restaurant to life.

Through highlighting local farmers and hiring locally, their vision was to create a restaurant that would not only provide the Covington community with incredible food, service, and atmosphere, but also foster sustainability and local growth. Chef-driven, the Mystic Grill provides southern food with an upscale and fun twist.
