We ate here for dinner after having it recommended and we were not disappointed. They have a nice beer selection and the food was delicious. Everything was fresh and the portions were plentiful. We did not have room for dessert, which is unfortunate because it looked wonderful. We will definitely return.

Went there with another couple and our son. We all had the Cornmeal Crusted Carolina Catfish, except for one of us who had the Jambalaya. All in all we all were very satisfied with the quality and freshness of the food. We all had different sides and shared them in order to get a good feel for the menu since... More

Jason did an amazing job last night describing each item for the table. He went above and beyond to make sure we were going to have an amazing experience. Loved the pimento cheese dip starter!

Great restaurant for any occasion. Menu changes regularly, always very high quality. Great for kids as well. Almost all locally sourced food, and generally a small farm stand outside with the same produce being served that day. Highly recommend this or the Greensboro location. Bring the whole family!

I've eaten here several times, most as the choice of whoever I was dining with. So I've tried several different dishes. The freestanding restaurant is well appointed and the staff is always pleasant and does a good job. I just have yet to be overly impressed with the food. Perhaps that's because it gets such good press and I'm expecting... More

Enjoyed wonderful service and excellent dinners. Our entrees included crab cakes, jambalaya, and black bean cakes. Sides were equally as good: jalapeño Mac and cheese, whipped sweet potatoes and mustard braised cabbage. The fresh baked bread served with dinner is also amazing. We dined on a Satirday evening and reservations are a must.

Love the way the menu is ever changing seasonally. The food is pleasantly presented and the flavor is always good. My favorite is the pear salad. Service is prompt and good.

We have been here many times and just like all the other times the food and service was excellent. The catfish and salt and pepper ribeye was delicious. Can't wait to go back.

Our Cornmeal Crusted Catfish has been a guest favorite for years. We source our catfish locally from Ayden, NC. Pan-fried and served with creole mayonnaise...a true taste of the south! Greg Miller Service Manager Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen More

I took there my family that was visiting us from out of state and wanted them to try something typical from this area. It took them over 20 minutes to prepare us a table in a rainy and non busy evening , where only very few tables were taken. Still don't know why. Staff was rude. Food was disappointing, small...
