As prices increase here quality goes down. The French dip was grizzly, the hamburger buns served soggy and wet with the steak burger. It has been overrated for several years now...they had better skill cooks in the past. The past 3 or 4 visits we sit there and say there are better choices.. what happened. ..use to be much better.

Needed takeout food for a working dinner. Excellent meat loaf dinner. Others in my group had sandwiches, salads, and a chicken dish...everyone thought it was very good.

Our son has been a student at UNCW so we have been coming to this restaurant over the last 4 years. It is consistently good and never disappoints. The homemade chips and ranch dressing dip are delicious. Soup, sandwiches, hamburgers...all great. Stop at the bakery on the way out and grab some things to go. Yum.

This is a fine a fine place to eat. Our server Brandon was terrific. I ordered the shrimp and grits. I am sensitive to spice so it was his suggestion for the sauce to be served on the side which made this dish just right for me. The grits cake was perfectly cooked. My husband had tuna and it was...

My wife, daughter and I had breakfast at Sweet and Savory on a Saturday while in Wilmington. I had the All American breakfast but with a biscuit instead of toast. My hard fried eggs were very good as were the home fries. I had really high hopes for the biscuit, but it was not a good has I was hoping... More

I've never had a less than stellar experience at this place. It's obvoius that your meal is prepared by folks who care and take pride in their work. You must be patient if you go during peak meal times, but it's worth it!

It's a little out of the way; however, if you can find it you're in for a treat! The food is great and so is the staff.

One of my favorites! Can't go wrong when you dine here. Casual so you can slip in for a freshly prepared meal. Can't leave without shopping at the bakery for a homemade sweet delight or fresh bread of many choices. Delish! Attentive servers too!

This place is consistently delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner. My favorite breakfast item is the Kiss croissant with bacon or country ham with hash browns on the side! For lunch, the Johnny Appleseed and the Cucumber River are some of my favorites. The burgers are great too! I always like to try the specials for dinner but I can always... More
