Local and regional protein and veggies from garden/farm to table. In a not so snooty atmosphere. GMO free, Organic and healthy fare YES, but not so much of the upturned nose and GastroSnob as you get at other places. Down to earth waitstaff as our Carrie was very sweet and accommodating. They will work on customizing a menu item to... More

Had dinner here on a weeknight. I took a gamble on my meal and didn't like it but my partner's food was very good. Might go back and give it another try.

My wife and I decided to venture out from the normal restaurant scene and try something different. The menu is limited due to the serve farm fresh foods but it was very good. I had the pork chops and my wife had flounder and they were both very tasty.

The hardest part about eating at Glass Onion is the tiny parking lot. And if you aren't familiar with it, the sign can be really hard to see. But the food is really great. Everything is fresh and local and the recipes are not just the standards you find at every restaurant. Good wine list. They have the best mashed... More

Ate lunch and dinner here in December 2014. Top 10 on my "best Southern cooking" list. Very reasonable prices. Busy at lunch. Busy out the door for dinner on "Tuesday-is-fried-chicken night." Not so busy other nights. Very fresh ingredients, well prepared. A wide menu selection, including vegan options. Save room for the delicious desserts. If you like Southern-style cooking without...

Everything was great, I even found collard greens that I liked, (never liked collard greens before). I had the flounder and... More

Took friends from Missouri, we each had something different; chicken livers, grits, shrimp and roast Po Boy, lamb pasta and the bread pudding was to die for! Great service, fun place!

Stopped for lunch here today and was not disappointed. Menu is a southern style menu with a Cajun flair. The gumbo I can recommend having just eaten a bowl. I ordered cornbread as a side and received a chunk about the size of a slice of cake. You might find Po Boys or liver on the menu. Or, you might... More

I have eaten lunch here on many occasions and have to say Lunch is much better than dinner. They do "farm to table" and for dinner it's very limited to choices. We were invited here by friends to celebrate her birthday. I had the SC flounder which the fish was excellent but not a very big portion compared to my... More
