“It took forever for our food to come!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

Party of two.... Took about 20 min to get the appetizer out which was pretty good, the salmon nuggets.... Took about 30 min for our dinner to come out. In between not once did the waitress come by and say, your food will me out shortly or... We are backed up sorry for the wait.. the beef tips weren't anything spectacular like I expected they would... And then my drink ran out... I was done with dinner (that I barely ate ) when another waitress came to fill it. Not a good look... I will probably choose another restaurant over here next time... Nothing about the food made me want more...

“Good find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Great happy hour! House wine is excellent and very attentive bar staff. Would not expect this restaurant to be where it was in the downtown area but that doesn't detract from the experience. Very nice atmosphere and could tell that this would be a great place for a night out on the town.

“Excellent food! Not so excellent service...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

We ate here on a Friday night. They initially told us there was a 2 hour wait with a reservation, but we were in after only an hour (party of 10). My only issue with the restaurant was the service. The wait staff was friendly, but new. At least she seemed new. She had difficulty opening and pouring a bottle of wine. This wasn't a big problem though, because the manager was there to assist if she needed it.

My biggest problem with the restaurant was the amount of time after ordering. We ordered appetizers and it took close to an hour for them to arrive. Literally 5 minutes after the appetizers came, the rest of the food shows up. I expect more from restaurants. I expect appetizers to be made promptly and the main dishes to come after. Because of this backup of food we were unable to enjoy the apps like we had hoped and a lot of the food went to waste. We spoke to the manager about it. He was very polite and offered a refund. We did not take this refund. We just wanted them to know the problem for next time.

On a positive note: The grits and macaroni and cheese are to die for!

“Best meal on our US road trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

We had a one night stay in Tallahassee as we travelled through the US and our hotel recommended here. We had to wait for a table but we are pleased we did. The food was great. The tenderloins very tender and the mac and cheese very cheesy! The pizzas were good too; freshly cooked and flavoursome. It had a great atmosphere and we would have definitely eaten there again. Very good value too...and free wifi!
