Went with another couple, friends from our neighborhood. They had oysters on the signboard but were sold out. Told the owner that we were disappointed and he said to give him a few minutes to see if he could locate some bivalves. He was successful and we had a great meal with good wine and imported beer.

This restaurant may look old fashioned and a bit dowdy but don't be fooled. The food was really good and there was a great selection to choose from. Waitress was really friendly and food/wine was reasonably priced. Would have no hesitation in recommending Davids to anyone.

It's sad to think that this place has so much potential. This is the only "fine dining" establishment in the area and boy, does it lack.

Nice selection of food, from steaks, seafood, and poultry. All prepared by the chef. Not a chain so you get the best.

We were seated immediately and our server Laurie brought water and took drink orders I cannot say enough about Laurie, personable, attentive, friendly and knowledgable. She may very well be the perfect waitress. We started with fried... More

Best local "upscale casual" restaurant in town. Not far from I-95 or Lake Gaston! Perfect local dinner spot. They also have an excellent Sunday lunch buffet that will please a crowd.

The atmosphere is very nice. The service is usually very good to excellent. The cost is a little pricey. However, on Sundays they serve a very reasonably... More
