We had never come to Wishbone for dinner and we thought that we would try it. I can tell you that we did. The Wishbone on Lincoln is a combination of Southern comfort food from North Carolina and Louisiana to Piedmont & soul cooking. It is a casual Southern-style restaurant. The only thing that is really missing is any kind... More

I am excited that Wishbone has started serving dinners again. I am impressed to find 4 or 5 fish dishes on the menu that are broiled or pan fried, without a lot of breading and deep frying ! Most entrees come with 2 or 3 sides. I love their sauteed spinach,and mac & cheese sides. Very often on weekends they... More

We came here with a friend who lives in the neighborhood. Brunch was excellent. The portions were sized appropriately, but I was glad to have leftovers so I could enjoy it more later. The service was prompt, and the choices on the menu for sides were varied. I'd come back.

The food was mediocre at best. The service was slower than usual and there was only 4 tables occupied. The waiter was very nice but, he was the only one working. I gotta say Wishbone is just not what it use to be.

It has been several months, since we were last here. There wasn't anything outstanding or difference making. It seemed like that staff had other places, they wanted to be. We could here someone, discussing Resturant business,ordering and staffing.

I had never heard of Wishbone and some visiting friends saw it close to the place they were staying so we decided to meet for breakfast. The food was fabulous, atmosphere was warm and inviting and our waiter was top notch. I will be going back for sure to try other things on the menu and the brunch. Loved this... More

A great place to stop for a lunch or breakfast. Our wait person Kelly was so good. She smiled the entire time and had great recommendations for our party of 6. We all tried something different and offered each other tastes of our foods. I had an omelet with avocado. Oh my god it was good. My traveling buddy had... More

We attended a relatively small birthday party (32 attendees) at this restaurant, and had a small room with a bar for our event. A select menu of Southern food worked well for everyone, having good options. Everyone raved about the crab cakes. Service was attentive, friendly, and prompt.
