“Very good reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

The menu was limited but had a good range of entrees. The food was very good and the service was efficient and responsive. The drinks were fairly priced and adequate in serving size. Would highly recommend this restaurant for a nice dining experience.

“What a disappointment!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

We have been coming to Chatham for 6+ years and each year visited Vinings. In all of our previous visits here we left very content with all aspects of the restaurant. This year we were extremely disappointed and decided that next year we will skip Vinings. The menu has been changed and did not offer the variety we were used to here. The prices were higher and the portions smaller. The wait staff was very inexperienced and added to the disappointment. For the money, this is a very bad value. The location leaves much to be desired as it is in a building that houses a very large vacant retail area. The restrooms are outside the restaurant and require a key code. They are no where convenient. Think twice before going!!!

“What a meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Well, we had a bit of a wait for our (reserved) table and a bit of a wait for the salads to come out..... but the food was outstanding and worth the wait!
Try the scallops or the hotpot entree, both were divine. The Corn Chowder was layered and complex.... about the best i've ever had!
Wait staff was attentive, yet not obtrusive.
Desserts were excellent as well!
Worth the trip!

Food, service and wine or really good. Location a little wield and ambience eclectic - at least we could see the asexually on tv at the bar! Would probably go back.

“Pretty standard”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

Food is pretty good along with the service. Place is just way too hot. Like being in an attic. Oh wait it is an attic.
