Our son and his wife could not wait to take us here when we came in town. The food, service and atmosphere were amazing. Highly recommend the Mac and cheese and the pork shoulder. The cheese plate appetizer was also enjoyable .

My wife and I have gone here for the past few years for our anniversary, and have always enjoyed the food. On our last visit, August 16, we have decided to not frequent the establishment again. Not because of the food but due to the atmosphere, and in particular, the front desk people. We had called for reservations a week... More

My mother and sisters came to town for my birthday weekend. We dined here the first night, after I reviewed the trip advisor resturant reviews for the area and noticed it was ranked # two in the city. The wait wasn't very long. Since the weather was pleasant, we ordered wine from the bar and waited outside. There wasn't much... More

thank you for your review. we are very sorry that the cigarette smoke was an issue upon your arrival. We do not allow smoking on our patio area, but we cannot control those persons who choose to smoke in the area surrounding the building. But yes, we are very happy that smoking was banned WITHIN restaurants and bars years ago,... More

Excellent atmosphere.The jazz music, seating arrangement, lighting, and settings were nice. The free horderves provided by the chef was excellent. The hot bread and creamy butter were great. Presentation of the food was great. The presentation did not mean a small portion either. I enjoyed the deviled eggs. Finally the entree, potroast, mashed potatoes, onion rings, and string beans were... More

We chose the restaurant based on menu and reviews. A little trouble with GPS, but once there WOW! We were seated promptly and ordered quickly. All entrees sounded delicious. We ordered the filet (scrumptious) and the special 14oz. Ribeye (delicious). We ordered pulled pork spring rolls (excellent) and were brought a sample of andouille sausage croquette (best hush puppy ever!)... More

Three of us ate here tonight. First let me say that every mouthful was out of this world. The scallop dish was outstanding, and the monkfish special was also very good. Two of us had a cup of broccoli soup as well and it was the best I've ever tasted. Unfortunately it took a very long time for our meals... More

Very,very good does not describe the menu. On arrival you are brought an appetizer sample that is delicious and just teases your pallet for more from this farm to fork reasteraunt. Every farmer and their time and effort are noted and the chef really knows his business. May be a wait for a table but sit back and enjoy!

At lunch today it took about 35 minutes from the time the waiter took our order until we had our food. When we commented about the length of time, the waiter told us there had been a food delivery and that had caused the kitchen to get behind. Serious? What place allows a food delivery in the middle of the... More
