Well to start when j peppers opened I was their biggest fan loved the food and service was good. I had been several times and really did not have any issues. I decided to splurge and go there today since I had not been in a while. The service was horrible waiting forever to get our drinks had to get... More

I have now been a handful of times. Lunch, dinners and brunch. Every time I have had a wonderful experience, even at peak hours. We do generally choose a later lunch or early dinner time because it will get busy. Goat cheese & berry salad is my go to. Ahi tuna appetizer as well. They also always have a NC... More

Let me start off by saying a lot of people I know like this joint, and I really wanted to like it myself. The first time I went the food was average at best, and I'll leave it at that. I did give it a second chance, and it was worse than the first time. We ordered a "dip" that... More

Amazing food, locally-sourced whenever possible, with a changing menu. One of those places that has something for everyone, from pizzas & burgers on up to higher-end fare. The drinks are nothing short of spectacular and the atmosphere makes you forget you're in a small town. Go! You won't be disappointed.

1st time I was kind of impressed with the atmosphere and figured I was in for a treat. I ordered a chicken dish and can not say anything good about it, however that was a "to go order". So I went back and ordered a different dish and was terribly disappointed. I would rather go to Hardee's and that is... More

One of the best restaurants we have in Kernersville. Everything was good about the experience. However we eat no artificial ingredients and stay away from meats that are not at least hormone/antibiotic free and last I checked, they haven't set the bar that high yet. We would add this restaurant to our list of approved eating places if this was... More

This is a nice place to meet friends and enjoy delicious food. I got the chicken pie and my husband got beer battered fish. Both were wonderful.

Had drinks and bar food. Awesome. Menu looked great but just came in for a beer and snack. Couldn't be happier. Priced well and food was great.

It seems I always end up ordering the plate of 4 side dishes when I go here although there are a lot of other things that sound great. They have a grit cake that is wonderful! My daughter ordered the shrimp and grits though and it was too salty and heavy for her and me. I love the outdoor patio.... More
