LongHorn Steakhouse opened its doors here Monday.
Located at 825 West Oglethorpe Highway in the new Oglethorpe Square shopping center, the restaurant is led by Daniel Scoggins as managing partner.
Hinesville Mayor Allen Brown and Liberty County Commission Chairman Donald Lovette helped welcome the restaurant during a "lasso cutting" celebration with area and restaurant officials.
The 5,593 square-foot restaurant seats more than 200 guests and brought more than 75 jobs to the community.
A news release from the company said, "LongHorn Steakhouse prides itself on fresh, never frozen, expertly grilled and boldly seasoned steaks — like its famous bone-in Outlaw Ribeye — that are prepared by a certified LongHorn grill master. The restaurant’s design celebrates the natural beauty of the American West, with interiors featuring contemporary artwork and sculptures of horses, western landscapes and sunsets complemented by warm tones, wood and stone."
The restaurant is the first of several in the new shopping area to open. The center itself will mark its grand opening on Friday.
