Upscale dining. Excellent food. Waitress spilled a drink on our guest. I was a little disappointed that they did not offer a free desert or something to make up for the mess. Other than that great food, nice atmosphere.

Service is usually very good, but the food it just depends on the day. We have had really good food and then some just ok food there. It's pricey, however the restaurant itself is very nice. We have been there several times for various occasions, last visit was a special occasion, prior to that it was business related.

Spoiled and rotten meat that should have been throw away and never served to anyone is what I ate. 18 On The Square severely under delivered on our meal. I had the $28 New York Strip and my mother had the $11 southern burger. The presentation was nice but the food itself, was not. Her bun was rock hard and... More

Way overpriced, way SLOW service, took 1.5 hours to get our food when there were a total of 3 table occupied in the entire place. Tuna steak was literally raw and tasteless, my Ny strip was a terrible cut w 90% ligaments, and the pasta was bland. Overall very disappointing and will be going somewhere else

They offer much more than burgers but that is what we wanted after a long days drive. The building is very quaint but well taken care of and is in, from the little I know about from Shelbyville, a nice shopping/art district. The staff is very good and the burgers were delicious. We had the braised short rib burger--fabulous flavor... More

The whole experience was very delightful. My wife and I went there to try it out on a date night. Every portion of the meal was superb,from the salad that was a house specialty that day, to the main course. The server was very pleasant,and professional. You don't expect to find a Fine dinning Restaurant in a small town, yet... More

The ambience is great. Good menu; the calamari and pumpkin soup was well prepared. Fried green tomatoes a little over breaded. Beer choices were good. Very easy parking in the square. Friendly service and quite prompt. Definitely worth a visit.

This place is overpriced and the food is very mediocre. We did a group luncheon there for work and I have made it a point not to go back.
