My sister asked if I wanted upscale southern food, I reluctantly agreed. Boy was I glad I had! They have shrimp and grits to die for, a beef sirloin tip spinach salad to make you drool and desserts you could wear on your thighs! Atmosphere is dark but very classy. Outside seating is available and a cheers type bar. LOVE... More

This was our fourth time eating here. We were celebrating our anniversary. Told the server, Stacey. She seemed nice but was just terrible on her service. Our water glasses went empty more than once and we even ordered drinks. The drinks also went empty. On our last anniversary, the waiter gave us a piece of dessert with a candle in... More

Would like this place except they have an older clientele that complains if you are enjoying your friends and company. I have been to this place twice and both times have been told the group was too loud. Never have been told that with friends at other Greenville restaurants.

The fish special of the day was sanpper over a bed of spinach and grits. It was prepared very nicely with a carmelized crust but was fork tender. I needed to cut one piece to make it edible. The wine tasted good and bottles are half-price on Wednesdays.

The food was excellent, the service was impeccable. Atmosphere was very good, and the building is very historically preserved: it was a tobacco warehouse before downtown declined. Went for our anniversary, and would love to go back.

We drove an hour to eat here. It was for my 50th birthday for cripsake. I chose very carefully. The menu looks amazing when you go to the website. I picked things out there so I knew what I wanted when we got there. So the fried green tomatoes needed salt. They were sooo bland. My husband had the BBQ... More

We arrived early for our reservation on an evening to celebrate a birthday. There was no problem in seating us early and we were shown to a very cozy table in the room farthest from the bar and entrance. The interior of the restaurant is warm and fun with walls of nicely exposed brick and archways and other industrial design... More

One of, if not the best places in downtown Greenville. The large private room is perfect for large parties. Easy parking in garage and short walking distance smack in the center of Greenville.

Had dinner here last wed. With 6 friends. Could only talk to one person at a time on either side because it was sooo loud. I like ambience, but we had to use our phones to see the menu it was so dark. Got blue crab and Monterrey jack nachos and fried green tomatoes. They were both delicious. Had pecan... More

We held a dinner event for our leadership team. This restaurant is in easy walking distance from our hotel. the decor was beautiful with exposed brick walls and open dining areas in a beautifully restored warehouse. We were greeted and promptly seated. There were about 35 of us but we had a private dining area which was quiet enough for... More
