Waitress was friendly, very helpful describing the dinner plates and wine selections. We all had seafood entries and every dish was excellently prepared with plenty of food. The only drawback were...

We stopped by North Banks Restaurant in a hurry because we had a tour coming up. We were seated at once even though the restaurant was crowded with lunch patrons, and our waitress took our order right away and quickly brought the meal. We had an excellent black bean soup to start. The hush puppies were some of the best... More

6 of us ordered lunch and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food. This included the following sandwiches: yellowtail tuna, chicken breast, pimento burger, fried flounder and pulled pork. We also ordered the chicken fingers. Everything was fresh and we'll prepared. We were quite amazed that the waiter took our order, didn't write anything down and not only were the orders correct...

We waited one and a half hours to get in (small place) but the food was really good. Because it is in a kind of shopping area, we were able to occupy the time. Our waiter was nice and did a great job of getting everything out expediently.
