Sorry but at the prices this place charges the food is just not good enough. I had a $33 filet mignon and while cooked correctly it tasted bland. I had just a few weeks earlier gotten maybe the best filet mignon I have ever had...More

This Buford mainstay needs a breath of new life. The menu is very out of date (too many heavy dishes) and very over priced. Service was acceptable, but not anything above absolutely ordinary. And to top it off, it was so hot in there we...More

Had a great dinner on our anniversary. The service was great and the food was very good. They dont accept reservations but there was no wait for a table on a Saturday night.

I have been here dozens of times over the years. It used to be better and could be again. Last night was dinner with friends. No reservation, just walked in. Hostess was kind and polite. Waited at the bar 15 min to be seated for...More

We didn’t have a reservation on a Thurs evening and waited about 40 minutes. I tried the lemon drop martini which was quite tasty. The filet and lobster special was served on corn grits with green tomatoes on top. The grits were amazing but the...More
