I only gave this restaurant an average rating because of the lack of attention the owners/management give to the service of their restaurant. The food is amazing. We love to go to this restaurant for lunch or nice evening on the patio. It is small but that is part of why we like the restaurant.
Unfortunately, the last three or four times we have been here, the service is just horrible. I know things happen, and large groups can overwhelm a small restaurant but really???? The last two visits my husband had to convince me to go back to give them another try and both times we said we would not go back.
It's really sad considering it's the best food outside of Charlotte. Even people I work with that love going to the String Bean have had the same experiences. I wish they could get it together and hire another waiter/waitress or two.
If you do decide to try, a few of the best things are: The Big Green Monster appetizer, the buffalo burger, and the fried oreos desert.
