“Wonderful meal and great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We were a party of 9 and I never expect much with the confusion that that brings. Well, i was wrong! It was lovely. Wonderful atmosphere and food was delicious. Sandwich/ soup combo , stew and Reuben excellent, as was shrimp/ grits, salmon, shepherds pie, and the huge steak. All plates were cleaned at end of meal and we even ordered bread pudding. It was better than what I make ! Great place to go - go early because there was some waiting - we went on a Friday night

“Not so great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Too pricey for the quality. Shrimp and Grits were good, but the other 10 people with me didn't like any of their food.

“Great Experience with a Private Event”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

I held a bride's luncheon for a friend's daughter. I live in Texas so had to set it up by phone and email with general manager Chris McBride. We were given a very nice space, a dedicated waiter Matt (who was so helpful and friendly). The food was attractively presented buffet style, and got rave reviews from the guests. Dessert was individually served, an Irish Cream Cheesecake that was to die for.

My friends who come to this area often say they eat here every time if at all possible.

I could not have been happier with the choice.
