God seafood around here is hard to find, but the Battery does a very good job. Tasty dishes and a beautiful bar with excellent service make this a well-rounded dining experience. Acoustics are poor, so not a cozy spot, but fun and good food.

Very Disappointing!! I was so looking forward to going to this restaurant because we had heard they have great food. Not the case, the service was great, but the food was way over priced for the portion size. My hubby got the scallops and they were so over-cooked that they were about the size of a nickel head and you... More

The Battery has evidently been sold, and now the name is The Old South. I am not sure of the menu, we have not been there since the new owners have taken over.

well overpriced for the service and food. The food is good when you finally get it. Service is very very slow.

We had hped for so much more, The buffet items were varied, but empty as to what had resided there at one time. Service was practically non-existence. Highlight of the entire experience was the carver at the meat station. He was the only one who came to our table, chatted, and said he hoped we would come back.

The Battery is an all around great restaurant. Great atmosphere, good selection of food and drinks and typically good service, but what I like the most about The Battery is the brunch buffet on Sundays. It's not just the quantity of food that is appealing, although there is more than enough to choose from, the quality is also very good... More

My wife and I went for our anniversary and the Battery was a great choice. The buffet brunch was oh so good. Beside breakfast items there was roast beef, deep fried turkey breast(my favorite) talapia and a great assortment of veggies. The cream style corn was the bomb. There was southern style green beans, fried okra, mixed squash and several... More
