We had heard that this was a very good restaurant and we would definitely agree. Our waitress, Stacey, was wonderful. She provided some great recommendations, allowed us to try the wine before buying a bottle and then allowed us to split the check including the bottle of wine.

Fantastic service, delicious wine, and vegan options for those of us who are meat free. The waitress was very attentive. While its a fine dining restaurant you certainly don't have to dress up if you prefer to keep comfy.

Had really looked forward to eating here but do not anticipate a return visit. For a table of six they only brought two breads, we had to ask for a third. The eggplant Parmesan was sliced too thickly. The restaurant was not that busy, but it took forever for the salads to arrive, I began to wonder if we were... More

Loved the presentation of the towering caprese appetizer and flavor was fantastic. The warm parmesan bread was a tasty surprise. My tenderloin melted in my mouth with flavor galore! I like trying new places and found that I would definitely go back to this one again.

The food was absolutely amazing and divine!! My mother and I ordered quite a course such as Fried Green Tomatoes, Norwegian Salmon, Garlic Stashed Potatoes, and the complimentary Parmesan bread and it was worth it!!

The food was good. We started with the Caprese Flatbread and it was excellent. My wife had the filet and she thought it was outstanding. I had Lasagne and it was just ok. The server Monica was outstanding and did a great job on her first night.

We ate here two years ago and really enjoyed it. This trip was quite a disappointment. The service was terrible. Our waitress/server thought that we would like to hear stories of fods that she does and does not like. Her service was rushed and not professional. Another server ad an adjacent table neded the customer to open a bottle of... More

Last week my friends and I stopped in at Fried Green Tomatos after seeing an ad for Tippsy Tuesday's. We were so-o-o pleased. The $2.00 wine list was extensive with name brands. A very generous glass. We stayed for dinner and everything from the Fried Green Tomatoes, to the special--a delicious stuffed pepper was delicious and presented very well. The... More

Service was terrible and the food was less than average. Very expensive! For the money we paid, I would expect very prompt service and a very filling meal. The server was not attentive and the meal was poorly prepared.
