Service was so attentive and friendly. The food was excellent, largest lobster tail I had ever seen. Wine perfect. Complimentary dessert for our anniversary was the perfect ending to a great meal.

Having dined there several times over the last few years I had moved to the coast about a year ago...but returned recently to attend a business dinner there. Am a restauranteur myself and know that consistency with food and service is the most critical thing to manage. Nice to see that the folks at Bin 54 continue to nail that... More

I wrote a negative review on our first visit in the spring but noted we would try again because of the service. We made it back for Christmas Eve which is a tough night for a restaurant. The service was terrific again....and so was the food from appetizers through dessert. The steaks were all well prepared and flavorful, and the... More

The atmosphere is modern, our service was quite good and the food was excellent. My only issue was the price of some of the steak dishes, which neither of us had.

Had 4 different steaks and a lobster tail, including the special, a 12 oz. Delmonico steak that was out of this world! Great family style sides and excellent service. Reasonable wine list prices, we had a very good Zinfandel (Soberoff ?sp) and surprisingly good cocktails. As good as any excellent steak restaurant in Atlanta (our hometown)

Hello Stuart. Thrilled to hear you enjoyed Bin 54 as much as you did. I'm also from Atlanta, and I know how good the steakhouses are there. We appreciate the high praise and very much look forward to your next visit to Chapel Hill and Bin 54. The Zinfandel I'm thinking you had is Seghesio. That's the only one we... More

We were there for a special birthday and the evening could not have been better. The wait staff was excellent, attentive and not intrusive. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave excellent tips about the main courses. The wine choices were good and the wine steward was excellent in his knowledge of the wines and its origins.... More

Place was hopping. Good selection of wines and bourbons. Salads very very good but not great. (Not out of Food Lion bag as someone said). Wife ordered her filet blue, mine rare, and they got them right, they were very tender. Brussel sprouts were excellent, 2 x baked potato so-so. Value not so bad. Did not get our server's name....
