Good with some room leftover

The atmosphere is really nice....old style feel, nice bar area, nothing fancy but cozy. The service is just OK. Adequate, but for the money, I feel that it should be smoother and faster. The food was good, everyone cleaned their plate, but there is room for improvement. My pork chop was moist... read more

Food is over rated. Very pricey for what you get. Everyone at our table was disappointed. Will not go again.

I was visiting Sanford this week and stopped by here for dinner - it's been just about a year since I was last here. The menu has changed, and honestly, it took me several long minutes to figure out what I would try -- everything on the menu looked awesome!!! I ended up enjoying a ginger mojito, a house salad,...

I visited with two friends. I arrived early and decided to have a drink. The staff was fantastic, very personable and friendly. When my friends arrived, we ordered shrimp and grits for an app. One of the cooks, Danny "Grits?", told me they would be the best I had ever had. I was a skeptic, but he was right. They... More

We went here for our 37th year anniversary and had a great time. The food was excellent and the service was just as good. Manage checked on us and they were awesome. Thank you for a great time.

The restaurant is always changing their menu and keeping it fresh and exciting for example I had a smoked trout appetizer that still makes my mouth water when I think about it. The shrimp and grits were well spiced and the grits were smooth,cheesy Divine. The service was very good and the waitress very knowledgeable and helpful. The owner stops... More

We stopped in for dinner before a show at the Temple, for our anniversary. We had eaten there one other time and decided to give it another try. The waitress we had totally ignored us. The barbeque was flavorful but cold. So all in all it was a bad experience, especially having to pay the high price for the meal... More

Don't waste your money! I am from Texas and know what good BBQ tastes like this is not it. Wife had drinks and was also very unhappy there as well.

i called to order a gift certificate for my sister's birthday. I spoke with the owner who did not process the order. When I called to find out why the card was not delivered he apologized but then wrote down the information incorrectly so that the order did not process again. Too many calls--incompetence. Messed up the Birthday! I will... More
