Willie Thompson

Executive Chef

Willie started his career at Dale’s Restaurant in Florence, AL in 1990. With hard work and a willingness to learn Willie quickly rose through the ranks in the front of house and moved into the kitchen where he really began to hone his skills. A quick study, Willie was soon promoted to Kitchen Manager and began a long career of serving some of the best cuisine in the Florence area. After nearly 21 years of service at Dale’s, the business closed and he moved to another fine dining restaurant in town where he was responsible for designing menus and creating signature dishes. 

We are extremely lucky to have Willie on board as part of the team.

Hannah White

Bar Manager

Hannah has been in the food and beverage industry for over 16 years and has worked multiple positions including setting herself apart as one of the top bartenders in the area. Hannah is extremely excited to bring a new dining experience to the Shoals area for locals and tourists alike.

Using her experience, Hannah will team up with the other food and sales professionals on staff to not only develop Fizz as a top performer in the area, but to refine the banquet offerings for the hotel.
