We had just arrived in Chapel Hill and were looking for a restaurant that was quiet and casual. This was perfect - near the hotel, any casual attire and it offered both steak and fish. My trout was too salty to my taste and was immediately whisked away and I was given another trout to my liking. The wait staff... More

Atmosphere is on the romantic side. I was there with a business group. I had the crab cake as an appetizer and it was over the top. And actually, it was a large enough size that it could serve for 2. I had the salmon for my entree and it was just OK. Nothing at all special. I did taste... More

Hello Susan. Thank you for your feedback. I am happy to hear that the steak you tasted was very good, but I was wondering if there was anything you felt we could have done differently with the salmon for you. We do often get high praises for our crab cake, and I am glad to see that you agree. We... More

Great service, food was excellent. Lamb, steaks, fish etc in a reasonable price. Good wine list and not noisy. Was a bit dated on the fixtures, but a very good restaurant.

This was our first visit to Bin 54 and it was Saturday night. The service was excellent and the food choices we had were all excellent from entrees, sides, and deserts. Our only issue was the high level of noise that made conversation almost impossible. This high level of noise may be a result of Saturday night crowds or larger... More

Thanks for your feedback, Ned. We're happy to hear that your service and food were both excellent. Unfortunately, you joined us over Duke University Graduation weekend, and there were many large groups celebrating. Festivities can make it louder in the restaurant than normal. Next reservation, please ask if there will be anything out of the ordinary occurring. We look forward... More

We enjoyed a graduation celebration dinner at Bin 54 last Saturday. They were understandably busy. We were seated on time, but our dinner took a long time to arrive (I think our order may have been lost). The manager, Troy Revell, took a personal interest in looking after our party, apologized profusely (unlike the hotel review I just completed), complemented... More

Pros: efficient but pleasant server, decent lamb chops, and they removed charge for the steak without me asking. Cons: the steak had no flavor, there was gob of salt in potatoes, spinach casserole was soupy, and room very loud. Our first visit and may give it another try because of service.

Ate here with 6 other coworkers on a business trip. We were pleasantly surprised to call at 5 on a Thursday for a 6:15 reservation and get a table to accommodate 6. When we arrived we were pleased that it was a nice-sized round table so we were not all crammed together. Our waiter was very nice with a touch... More

This is an upscale restaurant with very good food. We started with the calamari. It was very good. I had the beet salad, which was fine, but I felt lacked flavor. My kids both had fillet, and it was cooked perfectly and they said it was delicious. I had tuna with the Szechuan crust. We shared asparagus. It too was... More

The food was really terrific, the staff were friendly, efficient and very accommodating. The only problem I had was the side salad consisted of only lettuce, no other vegetables. To me that is not a salad. However, it was a mix ob baby greens which was nice.
