Different but delightful

Southern charm at its finest. Great food great atmosphere. Server was great. Didn't have room for desert. Parking can be tricky.

A few months ago I won tickets to the Oakdale Theater in Wallingford, CT to see Diane Krall. We had never been there before so we went early in search of dinner and a glass of wine before the show. We were lucky enough to find a parking space in the quaint downtown area and as we walked around, we... More

This place is worth checking out - the atmosphere is very relaxed & romantic. Quiet and classy. Prices are a little high but the quality is good. I had the salmon, which was perfectly cooked. The accompanying risotto was so-so. Great appetizers (cheese plate!) and friendly, attentive waitstaff.

My wife and I frequent this spot for many reasons. It's a very classy restaurant on the inside, but nice jeans and well-kept shirt is all you need to fit in. The host staff is very friendly and does a good job of keeping you updated. While a reservation is not required, I would recommend getting on Friday or Saturday... More

The appetizers are amazing and the Mac N Cheese is absolutely the best. I wish they were open for lunch. Will return.

All in all the food is good but, pricey. We have had good meals and not so good meals.The best choice is to have appetizers at the bar.

Had dinner here with friends on a Saturday night. Food was pretty good - had the shrimp n' grits - which was actually a bit too salty for me - but was cooked well, which was surprising for a place so far north! The fact that this place was once a bank made the atmosphere unique and kind of cool.... More

We tried it again because we like the food. The Girl at the door told us twenty minutes for a table, after 20 mins. we asked her how long she told us another 30 to 40 minutes! while waiting we grabbed a couple seats at the bar. The bartender never looks up! he was washing glasses and running back and... More
