Good food but loud

We ate here over the Christmas season. The restaurant was lovely and decorated for the season. The food is very good and is based on the owner's Southern roots. All four of us enjoyed our meals. The service was wonderful and the waitstaff was professional and attentive without hovering. The only... read more

We stopped in for dinner one night and liked it so much we came back the next morning. My 4 year old loved all of the safari decor and the kids menu was really great. The coffee cake with breakfast is a must

We like eating here because the food is consistently good, the service is cheerful, and the prices are great. It can be noisy during happy hour on Friday but everyone seemed like they were enjoying talking (or shouting) to each other and laughter filled the air. There is a fixed price menu served early and I had a nice plate... More

This was the second year of eating New Years Day breakfast at the Safari room. We liked it so much last year we did again this year. The staff is great along with the food.

My husband and I love the Safari Room! It's fancy without feeling stuffy and has great food. We have eaten there for special occasions and we have always had great experiences!

Stayed at the Davenport for NYE and decided to try out the happy hour in the Safari Room (4-6pm). Service was disappointing. Sat at the bar and the servers barely paid any attention to us. They huddled around talking with each other most of the time we dined. They appeared rude due to their lack of interpersonal skills and attention... More

the food was so-so, the service was slow, and the general atmosphere was sort of as if you are at a diner at an old railway station. We won't be back.

Late afternoon after shopping at the mall, my husband and I will stop by for happy hour (4:00-6:00) for a quick bite, a glass of wine (me) and a beer (husband.) I love the spicy shrimp appetizer (not on the happy hour menu, but order it anyway), and the hummus plate is also good - the lively elegant atmosphere are... More

After a horrible experience two years ago, I decided to give this place another try. The hostesses were rude and the waitress was slow and disinterested. The cocktails were delicious but I felt overpriced. The food was fine but nothing special. The restaurant is quite loud, difficult to have a conversation. I wanted to like this place but I'm afraid... More
