Not only a good meal, but eating outside is a treat. Vidalia's has the only alfresco dining in Lawrenceville that is off highway 206. It is quiet and well shaded. Inside, the restaurant is cozy. The menu has plenty to choose from. Recently we ate there on our wedding anniversary and had a great meal. I have had one of... More

The first time I ever dined at Vidalia was for my high school graduation so I didn't remember much from that. I went into the night's dinner for my mom's birthday with an open mind. The restaurant atmosphere was very welcoming when we arrived and we were promptly sat. The menu had enough variety and a huge plus for me... More

I dined here for the first time this week for a business dinner. I was so delighted. The service was casual but spot on. The atmosphere is also casual, yet very comfortable and inviting. We dined inside, but there is a lovely outdoor patio. The food was IMPECCABLE. I enjoyed a stuffed zucchini flower as an appetizer, and a barramundi... More

This past weekend We hosted a bridal shower at Vidalia. The outside patio with tent, was the most perfect setting for an intimate affair. Sal and his staff, are very welcoming and very hospitable. Each course of the afternoon, was perfection. The salad and the dressing were absolutely delicious. I highly recommend Chef Sal and Vidalia for any special event... More

We had a baby shower at the restaurant. It was a pleasure to work with Sal, the owner and chef, and the staff. They were very attentive to all of our needs and tried to help us in anyway they could. The food was marvelous, as lots of the guests raved about it and asked how I found this gem.... More

Four of us returned to Vadalia after having dined there 5 or 6 years ago. It is an hours drive for us so it's not a restaurant that would often come to mind for us. Last evening was an exception, we decided to return in spite of the long drive. So glad we did! We enjoyed having dinner in the... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local Lawrenceville resident when I asked her to pick a place she liked. Upon arrival on this hot summer day I noticed several people sitting outside and found my friends inside seated by the windows I took a soft bench seat, quite comfortable. A nice fresh crusty bed was brought to the table with... More

Vidalia's food is superb. Service is always great. My husband and I love going when we can sit outside for a nice evening. The menu changes regularly and in fresh and inventive. I have never ordered anything I haven't liked. Salads are fresh and light, dishes are well seasoned. Desserts are wonderful. Always a great night out.
