I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. The food is average, the menu is OK. But it's not going to blow you away.

The servicer was poor and the wait staff did not really appear interested. The food was mediocre, cold, and had a horrible presentation. The restaurant itself has a nice ambiance and bar area. There is plenty of room, but for why we got it was overpriced and clearly overrated. We love the town of Apex and wanted to bring our... More

You will not walk away disappointed by the food, although the bill can be a little pricey. My favorite saying about this place is great food at Manhattan prices. Good place to hang out with some friends for drinks and appetizers or to sit down and have dinner. Light entertainment, but more on the jazzy side.

Just moved down here from outside NYC and were certainly spoiled by the caliber of restaurants we had access to. First dined here in September and was very impressed with the whole package. Have been back at least 5 times since (sometimes we just drink and listen to music, a few times we sat at the bar for appetizers and... More

A ground of us came here for a work event and loved the placed. The waitress was attentive and very funny. Had a great attitude and handled all of us by herself very well.

I love Trip Advisor! We were in the Apex area and I checked TA for a lunch option and it directed us to downtown Apex for a great lunch. We had no idea there was such a lovely downtown area. We ordered the flatbreads which were amazingly good and the restaurant is decorated beautifully with handcrafted tables and quite an... More

This place rivals any of the top restaurants in Palm Beach Fla. I was beyond impressed with the seared tuna appetizer. I'll go as far as saying that it's the best I've ever had anywhere in this country. The cheese curds were excellent and the wine, I had the Malbec was a perfect companion. The only negative was the scallops... More
