Their food is locally bought the steak I had there was just extraordinary no words can describe the tenderness! Yumm! I definitely will go back there and I will also try out their Lamb chops I heard that its worth trying. It is also right by the water so it is also a romantic place to take your loved one... More

About the only good thing I can think of to say is that 'the view is good'. Staff unfriendly, menu BORING, food very mediocre, and prices above average. Wine list -- poor-- and deserts available were so average that we did not even try one. Oh--and noise level high.

The view is great as we were able to sit outside on the deck overlooking the river. The food was good we were there for lunch and walked over from our hotel. I would recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a good lunch with a view.

Food was delicious. My husband had steak and I had baked chicken. Both were mouthwatering! Price wasn't bad either. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We will go again.

Enjoyed a wonderful, leisurely lunch with a outside table overlooking the water. The food was top notch, while the service was just a bit slow. However, who cares, given the view and the fact that you are in the south. We did arrive right at opening time for the day, so it was a bit understandable. Great experience in a... More

Three of us had reservations for dinner on April 5th. I was a little apprehensive about dining out on Easter but our experience at Persimmons was excellent. We were promptly seated and enjoyed cocktails while studying the menu. We skipped the appetizers and had salads before our entrees. The Grilled Romaine with Caesar Dressing was exceptional. I would go back... More

The view at Persimmons is outstanding and the service was excellent. However, we were immediately concerned with we arrived at out reservation time to be told our table would be ready in just a few minutes, they were a little behind and had twenty-four tickets in the kitchen. Too much info! The food preparation was average and the portions small... More
