This is, probably, the best dining in the city. It came strongly recommended by the hotel staff and it was easy to see why. The facility is divided for dining and drinking. It appears to be converted from an old plantation house. The food is expertly prepared, tasty and hot. The wait for seating is not long but reservations are... More

What a gem! The decor is lovely and the staff is gracious and attentive. The food and service was outstanding. I had the most amazing gruyere grits and shrimp with sauteed kale, bacon, and onion topped off with a slightly warmed, mile high choc cake. Oh my goodness, be sure to ask your server to warm the choc cake. It... More

This place is a hidden jewel. The food selection was awesome, and everyone in my party of six loved their dish. Also had good beer choices including local selections. But save room for dessert because it's even better. Last but not least our server, KG, was "spot-on" with all his recommendations.

First time here. Like the idea that they have 2 size portions both come with 2 sides. All but one person liked what they had--ribs- crab cake--pasta - fish tacos-- the person who ordered steak said it was a little tough. The server was outstanding the berst server I have seen in a long time knew about al the selections.... More

The Hampton Inn staff recommended and called and made us a reservation, when we arrived we had a Happy Anniversary card at our table that was signed by the staff that was working that evening...very nice touch. Everyone was very pleasant and... More

Very nice visit with family including small children. Nice conversation in waiting area with frequent customers. Owner was especially attentive and interactive with our kids. That was surprising for such a large restaurant on a busy night. Food quality was very good but a little slow. We would go back if we were in the area.

A converted southern house has just the right ambiance for two or twenty two, with a larger meeting area or intimate booths in rooms individually named and decorated. We ate in the Clementine - deep terra cotta walls, electric "fire" in the fireplace - and enjoyed every bite of the perfectly cooked roast beef, crab cakes, sweet potato and zucchini... More

Give 5 stars not only for service, politeness, and atmosphere.But the chef who prepares the dishes. Food top rate as travelers we eat out alot and I would compare the skill of the chef and the quality of the food on the menu as well as the buffet to that of some of the finest restaurants that I have dined...
