This place is a very cool and modern atmosphere with a nice selection of varied fresh items on the menu. Great beer on tap selection just at the edge of town.

My husband had the Campari pizza and he said it was amazing and beats a national ranked best pizza ranked by Rachael Ray that we... More

I had looked up this restaurant prior to our trip and planned a visit to hendersonville so we could eat there. We had hoped to eat in late afternoon , but found they didn't open until 5. We were able to get in the restaurant about 4:50 and looked at a menu while we waited to be seated. I noticed... More

We moved here over two months ago. We keep going back here for the pizza. They are very creative. Every one that we have tried is so good, even if it may sound weird. The cheese they use is excellent.

We were very surprised when friends told us about this gluten free, organic, fresh produce and non hormone using restaurant. The hostess greeted us with a smile and sat us but the server had no knowledge of the specials and had to read them from his server book. We had hummus as appetizer and it was excellent with fresh veggies... More

This was our second visit and it did not disappoint. The salads are fresh and delicious, with the salmon cooked perfectly. The meatballs were delicious. If you are looking for a quiet, intimate spot, this is not the place but the food and service are excellent.

The 5 of us arrived not long before closing time but were welcomed in and not rushed, despite being the last diners. Food was excellent. Artichoke dip was amazing. Portions were a good size but thankfully not ridiculously big. Waitress was really helpful and friendly.

The bakery in flat rock recommended this restaurant. They have same baker but forget who bakes for whom and both have pizza ovens. The men ordered the meatballs which were homemade and delicious. The women ordered half salads which were huge. Our food was delicious. The restaurant is large and was the only one in the evenings that had a... More
