For dinner or lunch: if lunch, excellent array of delicious Southern Salads; dinner specials often incorporate Anything Southern like peaches or peach chutney, Or healthy greens and great cuts of meat. Seafood well prepared and served hot. Good fried green tomatoes. Desserts are ok, but no particular specialty items. Good and hot coffee and decent wine offerings. A small but... More

First time visiting and found the atmosphere to be welcoming with lots of artwork on the walls. Staff was great. Food was very good but be prepared for smaller portions. Had the Key Lime pie for dessert and it was excellent.

Been about 10 time's over 10 years. Consistent. Always a different spin on the food. Only bad thing I had there was over salted roasted lamb. Management came right over and tasted my plate and agreed. Replaced it with another great meal. Usually can't go wrong. Soups are usually unreal. Love the gezspacho.

We really enjoyed our meal here. Nice selection of entree's, wonderful specials and a nice wine list. Our food was very tasty and I would visit this restaurant again. It's hard to find though. Not a big sign on the road, just past Andy's deli to the left of the Inn!

A friendly, attentive staff makes your time there effortless. The food is southern with a foodie twist that maintains the integrity of the origin dish but elevates it to new heights! Always a great visit when I was a meat-eater!

In town to drop off daughter for graduate school and went looking for a good dinner place. Initially hard to find, but once there the food was excellent. Service was good and lived up to the name--to wit, friendly staff. Food was excellent. Fantastic seasonal specials,

I had the most amazing dinner at Mr. Friendly's when I visited recently on business. The food was fresh, the fish was outstanding, and the flavors on my plate were a perfect combination. Quite honestly, if I had not been at a business dinner, I think I would have ordered the same thing again and eaten it twice.

A large group of us met here for dinner before a show downtown. The service team was able to help us get in and out on time without making us feel like we had to rush. The food here is wonderful, and for the $ it's totally worth it. Other places in this area at similar price points left me... More

Loved our food here. The service is a little slow, but is worth the wait. We took children and they were good....(they loved the shrimp and grits)....it was a more upscale dining and we were surrounded by couples out for a date night. The food was awesome.
