The food here is always consistent. Kudos for locally gathered ingredients. Limited menu items but always fresh and well prepared. Someday I'll understand why bringing ingredients from locally grown farmers equates to a far larger dent in the wallet. The Fried Green Tomatoes are a must try app. Just be prepared if you have a couple of decent glasses of... More

I expected it to be delicious because of how creative the menu was...not great. We went for brunch and wasn't blown away by any means. I ordered eggs benedict with pulled pork after a recommendation from the waitress...It was not a good combination. Also ordered biscuits and gravy because she raved about it and it was like eating sausage in... More

My husband and I are not fine dining folks. This is fancy for us. The food was great, I had the New York strip with rosemary garlic fries. Sounds boring but wasn't. The steak was grilled perfectly and laid on top of the fries and green beans. The steak juice dripped onto the fries. Was delicious!! My husband got the... More

This place is excellent. This was our third time having dinner here, and each time was fantastic. I had the shrimp and grits and the flavors were great. The sauce complimented the cheese grits perfectly. My wife was very pleased with her soup and salad. Great waitress and service. We will be back soon.

Let me first say the food was actually tasty and the staff was friendly, understanding, and apologetic. But the kitchen is the problem. We ordered the charcuterie plate and the steamed mussels for appetizers. The plate was minuscule and nothing special. The mussels were delicious and plentiful. But the best part is dipping bread in the broth and they didn't... More

From beginning to end you will have a great experience. The staff was more than accommodating. Thanks to Demetri and Lacey for going above and beyond. We ate at several restaurants in town and this was by far the best. We liked it so much we came back the next night. All of the food is delish.

We visited 29 South on a rainy evening...but once we got there, everything else was perfect! Our server, Kiki, offered wonderful descriptions of all the menu items...and had some great recommendations too. When we asked about the mussels, her description was so mouthwatering, we had to order them. And, she was right...the Smokehouse Mussels were so delish...the smoked tomato was... More

..which means it's a good place to eat. We ordered small plates. I had the pork belly, smoked trout salad and wife had the lobster hotdog and a salad, finishing with a bread pudding donut - DELICIOUS! With a less expensive bottle of wine we got out for about a $100.

Enjoyed a meal out here one night with my husband and a friend. It is best to go on a weekday as there is not generally a wait. On the weekends it seems to get quite crowded. My husband has the special steak, which was a super thick cut and looked amazing. I had the shrimp and grits, which to... More

Let me first say that I respect the farm to table concept and dine often at restaurants like this one. Unfortunately that is where it stops for us on this restaurant. We wanted to try their signature dishes so we started with the lobster corndog. This tasted more like bland cornbread. It was devoid of any lobster flavor. It arrives... More
