We were seated in the back of the restaurant and the atmosphere was uncomfortable due to the noise and restaurant temperature. The food took forever to be prepared and the service was horrible.

We went on a slow night when there were only maybe four tables being served. Still, the service was slow. And then, there was the food....The panko breaded shrimp was over-breaded and reminded me of Captain D's. The baked potatoes were uniformly terrible. It was like they had been sitting for too many hours and had completely dried out. This... More

Second visit was just as pleasant as the first a week earlier - My food was well prepared and presented: a sirloin steak cooked as requested. I particularly enjoyed oysters on the half-shell as a starter and the salad was also above average.. My wife remarked that the shrimp and grits was spicy and very good. One of our favorite... More

We went here for brunch on a Sunday for our anniversary. We didn't realize it would be a buffet. They had a great selection and very tasty. The only thing I wish they would put desserts on individual plates. The cakes got really messy with everyone cutting how much they wanted. The building has great character. It's nice to have... More

I brought my father-in-law and my family to the Battery for brunch on Father's Day. The atmosphere is great (old school brick and wood) and the buffet went FAR beyond the typical fare. There was blackened tilapia, prime rib, roast turkey, tons of vegetables (including some braised Brussels sprouts that were amazing), a huge fresh fruit assortment, a juice bar,... More

The food was real good, and was fairly priced, with decent service. I would go back or recommend The Battery to friends.

Great food. Great atmosphere. Brunch was a hit. Just a tad expensive at 17 a person! Totally a once in a while meal!

We decided to give this place a try and it happened to be on Easter. They had a great brunch buffet set up along with Mimosas and Bloody Mary's. Will for sure give this place another try and order off the menu.
