Camellia however every time we though of popping it we were either too early of they were closed for renovations. We finally struck it lucky, and mean lucky. We got there right when they opened and even though we didn't have a reservation they seated us because it was so early. I had chicken and grits and my husband had... More

We went back in March and it was closed for remodeling. Bummer... Sure hope it reopens by next winter. We were very disappointed as we had guests visiting and had been talking about it for months.

I am not sure when they plan on the reopening, but are in the middle of a renovation project during this slow time of year. The place is in a super location around the corner from the Hampton Inn. Based on all of the great reviews, I am so sad that we did not get to taste the food on... More

Camelia Cafe is simply one of the best restaurants we've experienced. While not cheap, their consistent delivery of gourmet food paired with an excellent wine list is second to none. While definitely a "fine dining" establishment, the atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. This is our "special occasion" destination for anniversaries, birthdays, etc. It should be yours too!

Always good, tomatoe and watermelon salads always please. Excellent service at the bar and if weather cooperates, set outside. But be aware of the limited space (4 max).

The streets have all the trees dressed in white lights. The ambience is exciting and a bit noisier than I like, but the food is excellent. Each meal was prepared to perfection. I had the venison and it was extremely tender. The service was excellent.
