“A new Greenville favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

A neat place! It's not the least expensive restaurant in/near downtown Greenville,but the food is excellent and the service was good as well. It was Restaurant Week in Greenville when I visited, and they had a special menu, which included a three-course dinner for $30/person. For the entrée, I had a braised short rib, which came with mashed potatoes, collard greens, and two small pieces of cornbread, which I learned are called johnny cake. Growing up, we just called it fried cornbread! Anyway, the food came in decent-sized portions, and everything was delicious. I hope to visit again.

“A little off for New Year's...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

seated promptly, attentive service, but the entrees were not up to their normally very high standards. I still rate it as one of my favorites in Greenville and will give them another shot.

“Enjoyable date night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

My boyfriend took me on a date here. It was fantastic. The atmosphere is perfect for going on dates or really going to a nice place with a group of friends or co-workers. The food was phenomenal. I got the Ahi Tuna and wow was it good. It was seasoned so well and the sauce that came with it was great. My boyfriend got the Venison Chop, I tried a piece of it and that as well was fantastic. Before our entree we got this Arugula and Apple Salad. Wow the dressing was amazing; apple cider vinaigrette. Our waiter was great and knew the menu very well. Unfortunately we were too full for desserts but did they sound delicious.

“Solid”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Have not been in a year or so for no particular reason but have been three times in the past month. Each meal has been very good with some highlights. First, it's usually lively and on a busy night not a quiet place which is fine by me. The charcuterie board is a favorite along with the seared scallops on risotto. The venison was also very good. Never had a bad meal there ever, service has always been good....some of the hostesses are young and inexperienced. Kelly the bartender is very nice. Give it a go!
