Lives up to good reviews

Charming atmosphere. Food hearty and reasonably priced. Tried the fried green tomatoes since we are from the North and we wanted southern tastes. Awesome. Teenagers loved the cornmeal crusted salmon and the short ribs. I was a bit disappointed as my meal had a smoked flavor not in the description... read more

First time we ate lunch here it was fabulous! Food was very fresh - no complaints. Came back recently and was disappointed..had lunch on a Saturday - very crowded as usual - didn't have to wait long - they sat us in the sunroom which was very tight - you could hear everyone's conversation! Black bean burger nothing to rave... More

We stopped here for lunch after visiting the campus and unfortunately it wasn't the best stop for us. The service was slow and the food had some strong flavors (meatloaf and spinach salad) that weren't a hit with my crew. We'll try something else next time.

I had a great dinner here and was impressed with the attentive service and energetic atmosphere. While lively, it wasn't so loud you couldn't have a conversation at your table. The horseradish salmon was quite good and arrived hot. I would definitely come back.

Delicious burgers, yummy crab cakes & Rockville pasta are among my favorites at this gem of a restaurant. But, be sure to save room for dessert because they are fabulous!!

Not on the main thoroughfare going north on the highway but well worth the few extra miles and time. Fabulous well prepared food. Upscale college town ambience. Fast friendly service. Reasonable prices for the quality.

This was our second time coming here for Sunday brunch. It is the #1 restaurant in Athens so the 20-minute wait for a table was not surprising. We each ordered a different entree than our last visit (also reviewed on TA - I'm sure a name search will find it). Our son got the shrimp and grits, all seasoned and... More

We just cant say enough about the chef Jami; now he has a similar place a bit further down. A very unique experience. Having said this, I had a horrible experience the last time - the waiter must not have liked me as my dish was horrible. I called and mentioned it and they were sincerely apologetic. Hope no one...

This restaurant is well known for its delicious and innovative menu offerings. The prices do reflect the fact that this restaurant is a cut above. All of the tables were full, even on a weeknight. Attentive but not overbearing service.

Visited because of #1 rating. It delivered everything you would want in a restaurant. Great service, good food, well priced. Local craft beers at the bar and an extensive dessert menu.
